I am so sorry for the loss of a good man.
My prayers and thoughts with all his loved ones.

It's with obvious reason our hearts are heavy filled with much sadness this day. Words cannot express our feelings for this unexpected loss. As with many who read this, Matt's true friendship and generosity were a big part of all our lives.

After receiving the news, I couldn't stop the memories from flooding my head and remembering all the times shared with Matt and his family.

Having grown up with Matt from infancy and and remaining friends for 50+ years, there are many stories that can be told, and whether good or bad, everyone of them still makes me smile.

I remember our first day of kindergarten with Matt. There weren't many kids in our neighborhood so it was pretty much Matt, Brian Bundy, and me. The adventures shared as kids, riding bikes, shagging golf balls and playing board games. Matt loved board games - especially Monopoly. Looking back it only makes sense this is where he groomed his business skills and etiquette.

Growing up we stayed friends and had many more adventures too numerous to mention. Matt's work ethic was second to none. Matt helped me get a job with him working at Miller's Orchard. Matt was a workhorse. It was nearly impossible to keep up with his strong ethic and perseverance. Just working with him naturally made you a better person.

Upon graduating High School, everyone went their separate ways looking to conquer the world. A couple years later Matt eventually returned. It was good to see him again and the friendships remained. I guess this is what true friendship really means.

Matt loved his parents and his siblings and would do whatever he could to be there for them. Again, Matt set the standard and showed us what it meant to be family.

Matt and his family shared tragic losses with the passing of his sister Mary Ellen and his parents, Stan and Dolores. Again, Matt showed strength and his faith in God knowing someday "as promised" he would see them again.

Still as we might grieve over the loss of our dear friend, do not cry for Matt, as it was written in Ecclesiastes 7:1 - A good name is better than fine perfume, and the day of death is better than the day of birth.

Like the example set by Matthew, remain faithful to God, and know someday, we too will see him again.

Until then, we will miss him, but always remember him.

Rest in peace Matt. We love you.
