Matt Barthel, husband and father of 2 was involved in a tragic accident that sadly took his life on February 22, 2017.  Matt was struck by a vehicle that ran a red light on Sherburne County Road 81 and U.S. Highway 10 on his way to work for Monticello school district. This gofundme page is set up for his wife, Sara and their 2 very young children.  Sara recently returned to work from her maternity leave.  Due to this, she is out of paid work leave.  All donations to this account will go directly to Sara for immediate expenses and on-going care of their two beautiful children.

In addition to this gofundme account, there has been an account set up at First American Bank in Saint Michael  called 'Matthew Daniel Barthel benefit'. If you prefer to contribute to this account, please feel free to go to the bank or mail a check to First American Bank, 12725 43rd Street NE, Saint Michael, MN 55376.

Any and all donations are greatly appreciated!
