Benjamin Joseph Matthews Obituary
9/15/2003 - 2/28/2017
Benjamin Joseph Matthews was granted his angel wings on February 28, 2017, following a two-time battle with cancer. His final days were spent surrounded by the many people who loved him.
Ben's life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by him understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. His easy smile and warrior spirit touched the hearts of all those around him and the grace with which he faced his struggles will be an example which will be remembered always.
Ben's courage led us to believe that each day is a blessing and an opportunity to create lasting memories. With his passing, we must remind each other that his life is one to be celebrated. Although we will miss him and continue to love him every day, his struggle is over and we know he is at peace. We are so thankful Ben's sister Kate had the years she did with her big brother, so she can hold dear the memory of Ben's gentle spirit and his love for her.
Ben is survived by his loving parents, Meg and Mark Matthews and sister Kate Matthews of Menifee, CA; grandmother, Betsy Healey of Menifee, CA
A celebration of his life will be held on March 11th, 2017 at 1 pm, Murrieta United Methodist Church, 24652 Adams Ave, Murrieta, CA 92562. (Carpooling requested).
