Matthew Allen Wallis, 39, of North Kenai passed away on March 6, 2013 at Alaska Regional Hospital surrounded by his family.

Matt was born on November 15th, 1973 to Allen and Carol Wallis at Providence Hospital in Anchorage, Alaska. He and his two brothers, Jeremy and Timothy, were raised in Oregon and Alaska. Matt graduated from Skyview High School in 1991.

He fell in love with Jennifer Lynn Snow of Soldotna in 1993. They married March 17th, 1995 and have three children: Sienna (18), Jared (17) and Gavin (13). Matt worked as the Instrument Shop Foreman for CH2MHill on the North Slope.

Family always came above all else for Matt. He worked hard for his family and considered them first in everything he did. His greatest joys were going on extended fishing and camping trips with his family as well as supporting his children's athletic pursuits and other interests.

An informal "no ties allowed" celebration of Matt's life will be held on Saturday March 16th from 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. at Paradiso's restaurant in Kenai.
