Obituary for Matthew R. Willman

Matthew R. Willman, 31, died Monday, February 18th at Mercy Iowa City following a sudden illness.

Visitation will be Friday, February 22nd from 4 to 7 PM at Lensing Funeral & Cremation Service, Iowa City. A Family Service with committal will be held later. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to the Matthew Willman Family Educational Fund for Matt’s son, Nolan.

Matt was born June 2, 1987 in Iowa City, the son of Randy and Julie (Acker) Willman. He attended Shimek Elementary, Southeast Junior High and was a 2005 graduate of City High School. Matt received degrees in law enforcement and culinary arts from Kirkwood College.

Matt was employed at Jimmy John’s.

Matt was a “gentle giant” and is now free of his struggles. He was always concerned about the needs of others, before his own.

He was an avid golfer, fisherman and mushroom hunter. Matt enjoyed cheering on the Hawkeyes and the Chicago Bears. Most important to Matt was his son, Nolan, whom he treasured and loved spending time with.

The family would like to extend their appreciation to the staff at Mercy Emergency Room for all the loving care they extended.

Matt is survived by his parents, Randy and Julie of Iowa City; his brother, Scott (Vanessa) of Fairfield; his son Nolan, and Nolan’s mother, Jacki Delaney, both of Cedar Rapids; his paternal grandparents, Bryce and Barbara Willman of Albuquerque, NM; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family.

Matt was preceded by his maternal grandparents, Robert and Geraldine Acker and his cousin, Joe Acker.
