Matthew Gerard DeLaat

Matthew Gerard DeLaat, Rhinelander area musician and entertainer, passed away on March 28, 2020, in Phoenix, Ariz., after courageously battling a long illness. He was surrounded by his mother Virginia, brother Mark, and sister Mary.

Matt was born on June 22, 1955, in Madison, and "grew up" in Peshtigo. He moved to Rhinelander in 1980 to fish for muskies. He soon joined the local music scene, most notably with Marty Mullins' Marty's Party Hodag Music Festival band. A fixture at local jam sessions, Matt's sense of humor and his music will live on in the hearts of his many musical partners in crime. We miss you brother. See you on the other side.

Hope your jamming with all the other Hodag band members we have lost in the past. Will miss jamming my friend. Have so manning memories playing with Marty's Party with you.
Rest in piece and keep that tele tuned.
