Matt had an unforgettable smile, worth a million words, that he gladly shared with everyone. He was loyal to his family and friends, a lover of motorcycles and fast cars, camping, hiking, and everything to do with the great outdoors. His presence on Earth is greatly missed, but his spirit and smile will remain with us forever.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28
