He and Erin married September 26, 2009, living in AR, LA, and were currently back in CO. Matt worked in the petroleum industry as a wireline and field engineer and briefly as a construction manager. Matt made himself available to everyone, enriching others' lives with his acts of service. Whether helping with a project, celebrating special occasions, or just offering his logical wisdom, he was present. Matt's independent and fearless spirit was always ready for the next big adventure. He had a love for aviation and a creative bent toward music and videography. He played high school football and baseball, Division II football, coached and played on his neighborhood softball team, and enjoyed anything competitive/sports related. Matt's happiest times were when he and Erin held their annual crawfish boil, which brought together many friends and family. In addition to a small family service, officiated by Pastor Galen Huck, an event will be held when conditions permit to enable as many as possible to celebrate Matt's life.
