Matthew Joseph Haun, 61, of Hendersonville, NC died unexpectedly but peacefully on October 13, 2019. Matt is survived by his loving wife, Shannon of Hendersonville, daughters Stephanie Haun of Nashville, TN and Kristen Stay of Atlanta, GA, four grandchildren, Bailey Emerson, Olivia Emerson, Adelaide Emerson and Brooks Stay, sister Cathie Knoff and husband Greg, brothers Larry Haun and wife Lore, Chris Haun and wife Leah, sisters-in-law Eileen Haun and Sharon Haun, and as well as many nieces and nephews. Matt Haun was preceded in death by his parents, Elizabeth LePage Haun and Zachary Taylor “ZT” Haun, brothers Tom Haun and Bob Haun, as well as son, Matthew Joseph Haun in infancy. Matt was born on August 29, 1958 in Detroit, MI to Zachary Taylor (ZT) Haun and Elizabeth Haun. He graduated from Hendersonville High School in 1976. He lived and worked as a carpenter in North Carolina, Michigan, and Florida throughout his life. Matt was truly was larger-than-life. He was a master carpenter. He often would crack himself up. His laugh was contagious, his spirit - undeniable. He was kind, gentle, easy-going and content. He loved his family, friends, shooting pool, his motorcycle, cars, laughing, hockey, crab legs, and his craft. He could build anything to perfection, from a simple deck to the most complicated spiral staircases – all with the math done in his head, but constantly needed help finding his pencil and tape measure. He would drop everything to help anyone. Once you were in his life, you never went out of it. A celebration of Matt’s life will be held later in the year. Details will be announced on his social media pages. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Matt’s life at that time. Donations can be made in Matt’s name to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and condolences may be sent to 185 Morgan Rd. Hendersonville, NC 28739.
