1978 - 2009
Matt passed from this life the same way he lived it--in peace. He was a kind and gentle soul. And there is so much to learn from his legacy.
He had a genuine knack for making people feel comfortable and putting them at ease. He was often a man of few words, but there was strength and comfort in that silence. When he spoke people listened. He had many passions and deep convictions. A wonderful son, devoted brother, successful professional , friend to all, and an endless souce of enjoyment for his niece and nephew. Matt marched to the beat of his own drum and it was a beat that was admired by those who knew him, and even those that didn't. Matt's life was not just a physical journey, it was a spiritual one as well. He put all of himself into everything he did whether it was playing the guitar, meditating, snowball fights with his niece and nephew, getting together with friends and family, or standing third row center holding up his "Love" sign at every Dave Matthews concert he could get to.
Matt was truly loved by all. We shed tears at his passing but smile at the wonderful memories and moments he created throughout his life. We will cherish and hold on to them like the priceless treasures they are. We love you, Matt.
