Son, brother, nephew, grandson, friend
Throughout high school, Matthew was involved in soccer, track, and was part of the drum line. He enjoyed art, all different types of music, skiing, skateboarding, and hanging out with his friends. He was planning to run track in college.
We have so many fond memories of Matthew that it is hard to pick just one. We got to experience so many family vacations, sporting events, holidays, game nights, school functions, and just happy family times. We treasure all of the memories.
Matthew knew no strangers and always tried to make everybody feel welcomed wherever he went. He was kind, funny, smart, and full of life. He always made others feel better with his sweet and kind personality. He was an amazing person.
Matthew's future plans were to have a career where he would help other people. He wanted to give back after so many people helped him throughout his battle with addiction. The best way to honor his memory is to do something kind for somebody else and make their lifer a little brighter.
