Memories Timeline


  1. Matthew is already missed dearly. I remember every time we got together we always played board games, video games, and ate a lot of unhealthy food. We were always laughing and goofing off. I am so grateful to have had him as my big brother. So many special memories over the years that I will cherish forever.

  2. I love and miss my son Matt very much. I’ll never forget all the laughter and the fun times we’ve had together. Enjoyed all the times hunting and target practicing with Matt. I’m so proud that he was my son.

  3. Big Matt!!! I have been wondering about you since High School man. We have had some great times playing sports growing up. Very competitive!!!! The very first time I met you at Livingston Elementary, you came up to me and said I am the fastest and my friend Stephen Denekas is the second fastest. Well shortly after that, we raced and I became the new Sheriff in town lol. We probably raced about 10 times that day. I even remember your first dunk in the 10th grade!!! You were the happiest man in the world that day!!!! I say all this to say you are going to be very missed my friend and I always wanted to have a grown man drink with you just to talk about these great memories but its ok we will one day. Rest easy my friend. Your competitive nature will continue to go on now that your back with Tommy. Love you man!!!

  4. I am heartbroken to hear of this. When I think back on my memories of you, all I can think of is how you made everything so fun. You always had me laughing. I loved when you hung out with me in the ol’ tackle shop, even though you continuously distracted me with your shenanigans. You were the type of person we could just pick up where we left off, even after years and years. I truly loved being your friend and will always remember you.

  5. Matt whenever someone asks me who my best friend in school was it was you. You were a good friend and funny…always had something to make us laugh. After High School we all go our separate ways and we never had the opportunity to catch back up with each other. Your family, wife, daughter, and those closest to you will miss you so much but the friendship we made when we were young boys in school will never be forgotten. I haven’t seen you in years but you’ll be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

  6. Matt was one of the best! He always had something funny to say, he was goofy, and so outgoing. Between high school, working at Cracker Barrel, and many fun Monday nights hanging out at his apartment, there are so many memories that I’ll always look back on and smile. I wish I could find the photos from when we went to the zoo, they were the best. He was absolutely the type of person you could not talk to for years and pick right back up where you left off. Sending so many prayers for his family and friends.

  7. I knew Matt for only a brief period of 3 years. But that was plenty enough time to make me miss him greatly now. He was a blast to be around and always wanted to make the most of a moment. Matt was always generous, very motivated, and just a super fun guy to hang out with. I, like everyone else, wish I had more time to hang out with him and be able to see him again. I love you bud, and I’m definitely going to miss you.

  8. You always made sure we had a fun time! Thank you for being there for Riah and I! You’ve done a lot for us wish I could have for you you deserved the best but we have the best memories anyone could ask for. We will always miss you and Tommy but I know we’ll be together again and I can’t wait for that! *big hugs* ❤️ I love you so much!!!
