Mike, Diane, Linda, Bobby and Sharon, We are so sorry for your loss. We adored Uncle Matt. He could always light up the room with his smile, fill the room with his laughter and be ready to tell a joke. Each of you exemplify these memorable traits so his legacy will live through you and your families. He lived a full life that was rich with happiness and sharing. These are traits he modeled and we can exemplify. All our love and sympathy Mary & Jim Hunt

Diane and the rest of the family. Accept my deepest sympathy. I did not know your Dad very long however, he made a big impression on me. His smile, wit, knowledge and gentleness will always be a sweet memory. Our Lord and Blessed Mother welcomed him home with open arms.

I originally met Matt at the Ace hardware on Hohman and Gostlin., where he worked part time. Then sometime later we met again at the Hammond Civic Center, we was a good swimmer and always smiling. I later became a Hammond fireman like him and always looked up to the entire Jakubczyk family .
