Matt Funderburk of Lydia Dies
2012-12-29 by spillingmercury | 41 Comments

Matt "Fundy" Funderburk, 33, reportedly died in his sleep on December 27th. No cause of death has been found as of recent. He played in Bears of Manitou, Lydia and the Joey Arroyo Band, and had been working as a substitute teacher in the Mesa Public School District for the past year.

On the Bears of Manitou Facebook page, the band have posted the following statement:

"Today we lost a great friend, person, and musician: Matt (Fundy) Funderburk. If you'd met him before, you know that he is the definition of a bear hug. He would do just about anything for anyone, sometimes to the point of stretching himself too thin. But it was never about him always about others. His heart was huge, and the smile he wore was always bigger. Matt played his heart out in Bears of Manitou, Lydia, The Joey Arroyo Band and many many other PHX bands.

There will be a huge hole in the heart of AZ music.

We miss and love you Fundy.
♥ Bears.

Aww dying in his sleep sounds like either overdose or aneurism. This is sad, aside from a decent person dying absurdly young, Lydia was awesome

I'd hope it wasn't drugs, but RIP nonetheless. Lydia is great.

Dying asleep is one of if not the most humane ways to die tbh, I know that's how I want to go out.
