Matthew is survived by his mother, Shelly Kramer and best friend, Clifford Draper, of St. Clair, MO; by his father, William M. Schoeneman, Sr., known to all as Billy, and wife, Patty, of St. Clair, by his grandparents, Thelma and Clinton, Sr. Kramer of Sullivan, MO; by Frances Schoeneman, known to all as Frankie, of St. Clair; by his siblings, Jacob Schoeneman and wife, Mindy, and Stacey DeWeese and husband, Justin, both of St. Clair; by his aunts and uncles, Clinton, Jr. and Sharla Kramer of St. Clair, Kimberly Kramer of Sullivan and Debby and Brice Breeden of Sullivan; by great-aunts and uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends.

Matthew was a Christian and member of the First Christian Church in Union, MO. He was a 2006 graduate of St. Clair High School in St. Clair, MO. After graduation he worked in the restaurant industry as a crew manager for Jack In The Box in Union, MO for about five years. In later years he was employed at Sportsman's Supply Company in St. Clair as a fork lift operator. Matthew had many friends and they had affectionately nick-named him, Shano. He enjoyed many hobbies and interests during his life, but one of his favorite was skeet shooting. He also enjoyed fishing and playing golf. Matthew was an avid Blues hockey fan and rarely missed watching their games. Playing games on his phone was another of his pastimes.

A kind and loving son, son-in-law, grandson, brother, nephew, great-nephew, cousin and friend, he will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by all who knew and loved him.
