“Matt was the most adorable baby, rambunctious child, and the coolest adult. He made an impression on everyone he met and you were blessed to call him a friend.
Make no mistake, Matt lived a very full life. A life full of love, laughs, travel, and Rock-n-Roll! Matt had many vacations that took him to Washington D. C., Las Vegas, Florida, S. Dakota, New Orleans, and Hawaii just for starters. He enjoyed numerous road trips to visit family, and his daily drives around town with his friends were a staple!
Matt was not complicated, he knew what he wanted and he was masterful at finding ways to get it! Mt. Dew, Subway, CD’s, DVD’s, chips, cheese sticks, and hot dogs. He knew the value of “a dollar”, especially if it came from someone else’s pocket!!
Matt loved sports. He was a huge KC Chiefs and KC Royals fan. He participated in Special Olympics for years earning numerous trophies in, ribbons, and medals. He won State Championships in Shuffleboard, Dead Lift, Floor Hockey, Bowling, and Softball Throw. But nothing came close to the Pee-Wee football team he played on with his brother Bernie!
It was Family and Friends that meant the most to Matt. Matt was the thread that kept our family connected. He never met a stranger and he loved to talk with everyone. In 2019 Matt moved to a supported house where the staff truly became a second family to him, and to us. Through the love and support of these dedicated angels Matt made the Best Friends of his life. God is good.”
