Matthew Glen Eckhoff, also known by family and friends as “Cheyenne” of Mineral Point, Missouri, was born on September 2, 1956 in Cadet, MO, a son of the late Joseph “Dode” Eckhoff and the late Ellen (Pratt) Eckhoff. Cheyenne passed away on Monday, November 30, 2020 having reached the age of sixty-four years, two months and twenty-eight days.

Our dad was a complicated man but we loved him and cared for him the best we could. He had an infectious laugh, he didn’t know a stranger and he never missed the nightly news. He was affectionate and loving to his family or anyone that needed it. He always meant well even if plans didn’t work out. He cared for his grandchildren and always had the best of intentions with them. He loved nothing more than and steak and potato dinner. We know he is now with his family that loves him, watching his favorite shows and eating that steak dinner. We will miss him more than words can express and know that all of his worries have been lifted. He truly is in a better place.

Those who remain to mourn his passing include his four children: Jayne Robart and husband Dr. Jim, Megan Griggs and husband McKinley, Amanda Eckhoff and Fiancé Nathan Jones, and Matthew Eckhoff; siblings: Joseph Eckhoff and wife Carol, Dwight Eckhoff, Sheila Harris and husband Ken, Dennis Eckhoff, Kevin Eckhoff, Kelly Eckhoff and wife Mary, Scott Eckhoff and wife April, Shannon Eckhoff and Sharon Eckhoff; four grandchildren: Ava Robart, Eden Robart, Kameron Griggs and Adelyn Griggs; sister-in-law, Vicki Eckhoff. Cheyenne is also survived by nieces, nephews, and extended family.

Cheyenne was preceded in death by his parents, Joseph “Dode” Eckhoff and the Ellen (Pratt) Eckhoff; wife, Lilly (Pidcock) Eckhoff on 11/24/2007, and brother, Michael “Matt” Eckhoff.

Due to health considerations, there will be a private family visitation at DeClue Funeral Home. A public Graveside Service will be held Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at 3:30 pm at Barlow Cemetery in Cadet, MO with Elder Mike Jarvis officiating.
