In life one little decision can make an impact on not just you, but all those that love and care for you. Cahler A. Matthies had a loving and supporting family, and had everything going for him, but drugs took ahold of his life. Addiction changed him and destroyed so much of the hope and promise in his future. At the age of 31, Cahler quietly lost his struggle and he left us on Wednesday, September 4, 2019.
Friends and family may gather to share memories and honor his life from 6:00 P.M. – 8:00 P.M. on Wednesday, September 11 at Bonnerup Funeral Service, Albert Lea.
Cahler was born on December 15, 1987 in Albert Lea, MN the son of Garry Matthies and Lori Anderson Matthies. Cahler graduated from Albert Lea High School with the class of 2005 and then received his CDL from Riverland Community College. He worked at Cargill, and then drove over the road for several area trucking companies. Cahler was the fun one, the family “clown”, always trying to put a smile on your face. He was the one who instigated family time and loved playing with the kids. A “foodie” at heart, he loved checking out restaurants and cooking up gourmet eats in the kitchen. In addition, he enjoyed all movies, video gaming, golfing and fishing. He appreciated the companionship of his sidekick and canine companion “Thor”

Many aunts, uncles, and cousins also survive. Cahler was preceded in death by his grandparents Germaine and Leslie Matthies, Alyce and Allan Anderson and nephew Finn Ellsworth.
