Obituary Overview

Please take a moment to sign the guestbook.


Dr. Mathias “Matt” Gysler passed peacefully away on January 25, 2018 at home with his family in Oakville, Ontario at the age of 69. He was surrounded by his loving wife Sherry, of 33 years, his son Stefan and his wife Valerie Luks, his daughter Daniela and her husband Brooks Wood and, of course, the family dogs.

Matt was a man of many trades. He raced cars, flew planes, and sailed boats. He studied, he taught, he practiced and most certainly, he inspired. He was a leader and a role model. He believed in people’s dreams, and in helping them become realized.

He was a generous and loving husband, father, brother, friend, and physician. He will be remembered for his sharp mind and his calm, nonjudgmental demeanor and for his dedication to the health of women, children and families.

His family will miss him enormously and he will be forever in their hearts. He has left them with a lifetime of memories and life lessons. He worked as a physician in Ontario for 44 years specializing in gynecology, obstetrics and fertility. He was passionate and dedicated to his practice and will be deeply missed by his colleagues and patients.

Per his wishes, there will not be a funeral or visitation. The family asks that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Dr. Mathias Gysler Research Chair in Patient and Family Centred Care under the Trillium Health  Partners Foundation.

I’m saddened to learn of the Matt’s passing. I had the honor of getting to know him when he raced cars with Bieri Racing. I was then a college student in Florida and would try to attend as many races as possible. Matt was always so kind to all, may he Rest In Peace

Dr. Gysler delivered 2 of my children many years ago. He has always made himself available whenever I have asked to be referred to him. He was kind, compassionate, supportive and highly skilled and innovative. I am so very sorry for the Family’s loss and for all of the patients who have lost such a highly revered confidante.
