Matt is known for his kind heart and witty sense of humor. He appreciated a colorful sunrise, spotting a rainbow, or a well-played prank. He thrived in both the hustle and bustle of city life, as well as the peaceful sanctuary of nature. Strong curiosity fueled his passion for learning and creative thinking outside-the-box. He had the ability to express how he viewed life through his written work, art, and photography.
Matt had a strong belief in angels, and now he has the opportunity to be our guardian angel. "Those we love don't go away. They walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near. Still loved, still missed, and very dear. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal."
A graveside service will take place on Saturday, September 7, 2019, at 11:00am at St. Vincent Catholic Cemetery, 371 N. 2979th Road, La Salle, IL.
