MATTHEW CAULFIELD died by suicide on Thursday, September 8, 2016, in Salisbury, Maryland. Matt was born on May 8, 1986, in Edina, Minnesota. He is preceded in death by his father, Clovis Grant, and survived by his mother, Maria Grant, and his brother, Benjamin Grant. Matt graduated from Lawrence Tech University and was an employee of Apple, Inc. Those who knew Matt well will remember his smile, his kindness, his willingness to help others and his gentle spirit. Among many other fond memories, his brother will remember him by his baked potato sit-in -- a vegetable eating protest in which he sat alone at the dinner table for two hours at age eight. Matt was an incredibly special and wonderful person. His thoughtfulness and generosity made a significant impact on many people's lives. He will be missed more than he could ever know. His passing has left a huge hole in our hearts. Memorial services were held privately. Donations in his name may be made to the National Association of Mental Illness (NAMI), www.nami.org/donations,
