Memories Timeline


  1. To the family, may Gods spirit comfort and heal you during this time. I will always remember Matthew’s smile and his sweet spirit. May he Rest In Peace .

  2. Matt was a great childhood friend. He was always there if you needed him. Great laugh, and always fun to be around. He will be sorely missed.

  3. Matt was a good friend and colleague ….at Fort Myer Construction he was one of the most knowledgeable and professional PM’s I have ever worked with. He was also funny, generous, humble and a true “Man’s man”. Always willing to go the extra mile to help his fellow PM’s on the many important projects worked on…such The White House, The Executive Office Building and the CIA headquarters … actually Matt arranged for the two of us to have a VIP tour of the CIA headquarters. Everyone who ever interacted with Matt remembers his sincerity and well mannered way… We often shared stories about the two great passions in our lives…hunting & fishing! He was always bringing some game in to the office to share with folks here at FMC…he was a good man that will sorely be missed. And I was very fortunate to call him my friend. My sincere condolences to all of his family. Amen. Terry Martin
