Obituary for Matthew T DeRoma

On Wednesday, August 22, 2018, Matthew T. DeRoma, 73, of Somers, lost his long battle with COPD which he had bravely fought for more than 20 years. He left the arms of his loving wife to rest in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, where he will never again know pain and where he is loved, redeemed and pure. Matt was a faithful communicant of All Saints Church, a member of the Somers Lions Club and a member of the Knights of Columbus. He was a true family man and found great joy in cooking large meals for family gatherings and reunions. As a selfless person, he was always looking to provide for others. Matt is survived by his beloved wife of 34 years, Betsy (Webb) DeRoma, of Somers, his three children, Kim Rago and her husband, Jeff of Shelton, Matt DeRoma and his wife, Cynthia of Somers, and Rob DeRoma and his wife, Pilar of Ridgefield and ten grandchildren, Gabby, Sean, and Sammy Rago, Sabrina, Christopher, Natalie, and Matt DeRoma, and Max, Julia, and Lucas DeRoma. He also leaves two brothers-in-law, Randy Webb and his wife, Robyn, and Tim Webb and his wife, Nancy, a sister-in-law, Sally Nolen and her husband, Cephus, and many nieces and nephews whom he loved as though they, too, were his children. Although Matt was an only child he also leaves many cousins who were to him brothers and sisters. The family would like to thank the ECHN Palliative Care Unit, especially his nurse, Lisa Albert, for the special care that she continuously gave him. They would also like to extend a special thank you to Dr. William Preskenis and his staff, especially Jenna, for all of their help, care and concern. Relatives and friends are invited to join the family for calling hours on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 from 4:00 - 8:00 pm at Somers Funeral Home, 354 Main St., Somers, CT 06071. A procession will gather at the funeral home on Wednesday, August 29, 2018 at 10:00 am. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11:00 am at All Saints Church, 25 School St., Somersville, CT 06072. Burial will be held at the convenience of the family.
