Finn was a typical little brother, loved by his sisters. He was involved with hockey and tee-ball in Albert Lea and his favorite things included playing Minecraft, legos and all things farming. He loved riding around with dad and looking at pig barns, helping take care of the farm animals, riding in the baler with Garrett and was looking forward to showing sheep and cattle with his sister, Olivia, this summer. Finn loved the outdoors and spending time fishing with his family, especially his daddy and Papa Joe. Recently, Finn mastered how to ride a bike and had hopes of going bow hunting with Foley.

His happy, smiling face will be missed deeply by his parents Kris Ellsworth and Randi Matthies; sisters Morgan Bjorklund, Rylee Bjorklund and Olivia Ellsworth; grandparents Lori Matthies, Garry (Sally) Matthies, Penny (Joe) Schaefer and Rich (Margie) Ellsworth; uncle, Cole (Cassie) Matthies and their children, Alexis, Ryanne, Lynden and Emmett; aunt, Courtney (Peter) Botcher and their daughter, Cora; uncle, Cahler Matthies; uncle, Nate Ellsworth; their German Shepherd, Chase; their cat, Monkey; and several other extended family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his great-grandparents Alyce and Allan Anderson, Leslie and Germaine Matthies, Lester and Doris Sowder, Isabel and William “Bill” Schaefer and Betty Fossum.
