They coach, they cook and clean, they serve on boards, they mentor youth, but most importantly, they live the example every day of what it means to be a true father. We know that Katy is home to countless FABULOUS DADS, but here are our Top 50 Katy Dad Picks for 2019.
1. Matt Schomburg
Married for 18 years to Heather Schomburg

Raising Faithful Young Men
"My life is no longer about me, but making sure I am raising Godly men," says Matt Schomburg. Matt is Dad to Tyler 16, Maverick 14, Miller 11, and Riggs 8. "I love watching these guys grow and change and into young men. It is awesome to walk alongside them as they figure stuff out, help mold them into who they want to be and to show them unconditional love along the way. They add so much to our life, I can't imagine it any other way."
Setting the Example
Matt is a State Farm agent in Old Katy. Matt is actively involved in the Katy community and sets a fine example for his four boys. He currently serves on the Christ Clinic Board and the Katy ISD Education Foundation Board. He is a former president of the Katy YMCA board.
Funniest Parenting Moment
Many parents can relate to Matt's silliest parenting moment which involves diaper changing.
"Heather and I spent a decade changing diapers," he explains. "We had one son that took way too long to potty train. One day I was home alone with the kids and his diaper was out of control and the only way to get him clean was to take him outside and hose him down. After that it didn’t take too long for him to figure out how to use the toilet."
"I want my children to have a great work ethic, love their future wives, find a way to get plugged into their community and love the Lord," says Matt.
