Our Matt will be remembered for his considerate and kind personality, his fabulous photos that documented all our family activities, the gifts he gave that were so thoughtful and the immeasurable joy he brought to his family, particularly to his nieces, who were the love of his life. Mia, Isa, Joely and Jake adored their Uncle Matt. He was always the one that they couldn't wait to see, full of fun, crazy ideas and activities, unconditional love, friendship and respect.
