William Matthew Starkey, “Matt” passed from this life on February 6, 2013 in Saguache County, Colorado.
He was born May 1, 1978 in Gatesville, TX to Charles Wayne Starkey and Nanette Nabours. He graduated from Bernalillo High School, NM in 1996.
He is survived by his wife Kariza Bradshaw Starkey, son Justus Mason Starkey of Saguache County, Co; Gage Makiah Starkey, 13 of Bogota, TX; Niece Lia Alyce Woodman, Mother Nanette Nabours, of New Braunfels, TX.
He was preceded in death by his father Charles Wayne Starkey, and sister Amber Turi.
In his youth Matt was known to family and friends as a bright eyed curious young man who loved his sister more than anything in the world. He loved his family and friends with a ferocious depth. He loved camping, spelunking, and 4 wheeling. He had an amazing talent working on computers and fixing electronics. Making people laugh was one of his greatest gifts.
Somewhere along the way, we lost the Matt we knew to a darkness we could not understand, but we never gave up hope that he would find his way back.
A memorial ceremony will take place this summer for his family and friends.
In lieu of flowers, a savings account has been set up at Alamosa State Bank, PO Box 1098, Alamosa, CO 81101, for his infant son Justus Starkey.
