Matt Waddell

March 9, 1978 — April 10, 2021

Matthew Waddell, 43, of Wooster, went home to be with the lord on Saturday April 10, 2021 while at his home after losing his long battle with addiction.

Matt was born March 9, 1978 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada to Danny and Bonnie Lou {Keller} Waddell. Matt’s passion was in the culinary arts as an executive chef, who once cooked for the World’s Fair in Germany. Matt’s other passions besides cooking were his children, bike riding, fishing, and most of all he loved the lord.

He is survived by his children Samuel, Jake, and Grace Waddell; his father Danny Waddell, mother Bonnie Lou Waddell all of Wooster, and sisters Rebekah Blankenship of Delaware and Anna Lee of Wooster.

If you or someone you love is struggling with addiction, please reach out for help. The suffering doesn’t have to end this way. There will be no public services, but a celebration of life to follow in the months to come. Online tributes may be made at .
