Matthew W. Riddell

Obituary Condolences

Matthew W. "Matt", Riddell, 41, of Wesley Chapel, FL passed away Sunday, October 20, 2013. He was born in Philadelphia, PA and graduated from Bishop Kendrick High School in 1989 and Mansfield University in 1993. For the last 12 years he called Tampa Bay, FL his hometown. Since moving to the sunshine state, Matt has enjoyed the best of what Florida has to offer including, golfing, camping, riding a motorcycle, and even working in the press box at spring training baseball games. None of his passions compared to the love he had for his children, Lauren and Zachary. They were his greatest adventure, the source of his laughter, and his answer to life's questions. In addition to his children, Matt is survived by his mother, Andrea from Norristown, PA; two brothers, Scott of Great Falls, VA and Michael of Eagleville, PA; sister, Judith Tommell of Clearwater, FL; seven nieces and nephews. Matt is preceded by his father James. A funeral mass will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, October 26th at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church. The family will receive friends at the church for one hour prior to the service. Matt's final resting place will be at Calvary Cemetery in Conshohocken, PA and a graveside ceremony will be held there at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the St. Mark building fund. Words of comfort may be expressed at LoylessFuneralHome.com
