One of Matthew’s greatest joys in life was being a father to Haley and Jesse. They enjoyed going to the park or just hanging out at the house watching movies. He loved to play the guitar and ride his skateboard. You could always find Matthew at the river. He enjoyed camping, fishing, off roading and taking his dogs to play in the water. Matthew inherited his love for the outdoors from his Grandpa Harold who took him and his cousin to the mountains every chance he got. Matthew always loved riding any kind of ATV or dirt bike no matter how many times he ended up with road rash. Those who knew Matthew, know that this was his favorite time of the year. He loved the Fourth of July, especially the fireworks! Matthew and his dad Richard shared a love for every type of firework you can imagine. Anything from smoke bombs and black cats to the big arterials. Matthew loved his fireworks.
Matthew had many friends from all walks of life. He will be missed by everyone who knew him.
