Matthew’s friends spanned a twenty three state area, as it seemed like everyone he met on Steam trips ended up as a new friend. Matthew was truly loved by everyone he met and always had a smile on his face and loved to help and make people happy. Matthew was full of life, fearless, and prided himself on working hard. Yet he did not deny fear. Matthew loved spending time at work and spending time with close friends when it was possible and really just enjoying life to the fullest. Matt was also the kind of worker that would go to work and assign hard tasks to himself because it needed to be done and he always could do it and get it done right.

Matthew is survived by his work team from Cheyenne and select few close friends within a tristate area.

Matthew will always be remembered for his outgoing personality and constant ability to help make others lives meaningful and just making people happy. May his soul rest forever in enteral peace and May we see him again someday.- Crew and Friends.
