PETERSBURGH, NY - Matthew Ratelle, 40, died Thursday, December 20, 2012 after an incredibly courageous fight following a hit and run accident on September 3rd, 2012. Matthew was bicycling when he was struck by a car and left in critical condition.

Matthew's family and friends will always remember him as the gentleman that he was, with his beautiful eyes, long eye-lashes and infectious smile. He was the go-to person, always having the right answers and being happy to help. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, golf, tennis, bicycling, and playing a good game of cards, but his true passion was his family.
