On June 27th, 2003, he married Toby Singsaas, and together they had two beautiful children, Luke and Brooklyn. Matt’s face lit up when you asked about his kids.  He was so proud of them and loved them so much. 

 Matt wore many titles: dad, brother, son, friend, uncle, coach, and “Boris” to many of his friends.  He loved to coach Luke’s baseball teams and cheer Brooklyn on in basketball and in swimming.  Matt loved most sports and you could often find him watching and cheering for his favorite teams. In high school, Matt played baseball for the American Legion as a pitcher and third baseman. He also played hockey and was a talented musician, playing trumpet in the band, including performing the National Anthem at many hockey games.  He enjoyed fishing and spending time at his cabin at the lake.  He also loved to travel enjoying many vacations with his kids, friends, and family.  Some of his most memorable travel was with his brothers during the Broberg families annual ski adventures.  He was a quiet, private person and a hard worker.  He was a friend to anyone who met him, loved meat raffles and had many lifelong friends.  Matt could also be the life of the party with his big smile, witty sense of humor and a contagious laugh.  He was loved and appreciated by all that knew him. 

Surviving Matt are his children, Luke and Brooklyn Broberg; his parents, Lonnie and Karen; his brothers: Paul (Nicole), Charlie (Melissa), and Grant Broberg; and several nieces and nephews.
