Obituary

Matthew Williams surprised everyone when he arrived in this world, and did so, again, when he departed. He made his debut on September 19, 1980, a matter of minutes after his twin brother Benjamin, nearly two months preterm, and tipping the scales at just less than four pounds. A much welcomed, if unexpected, addition to the Al and Jane Williams family, Matt’s appearance left the attending physician apologizing to the OB nurse, who had insisted throughout labor she was hearing two heartbeats. The tiny boys had shared not only their first room, but their blood supply…so the initial hours of their lives saw a major transfusion effort to give each his own. They would remain blood brothers and best friends for 37 years.

Matt’s early life was filled with the experiences shaping his life-long philosophy that family and tradition are treasures. His grandmother, Yolanda, a cellist with the Brico Symphony, gave him music lessons and shared her love of “The Nutcracker,” which Matt continued to see nearly every year. There were trips to Arizona to visit his other grandmother Bertha, summers at Geneva Glen camp with Ben, family appearances in Lakewood on Parade and more.

Matt attended Lakewood High School. He swam with the swim team, becoming captain and lettering in sports as well as scholastics. He then graduated from CSU as a business major and IT emphasis, the latter setting the course of his career.

Matt loved Spiderman and Kid Rock. Cholula hot sauce and his dad’s cooking. His cats, Sunny and Luca, and his dog Maya. The Nuggets. Hiking with the Hager family in Estes. Solving computer issues. Biking Colorado with his Uncle Doug. His TKE brothers. Coaching the feeder and freshman basketball teams at Standley Lake High School. And always, his extended family. He leaves his mother and stepfather, Jane and Terry; his father and partner, Al and Carla; brothers Ben, Jeff and Doug and their families; aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Matt was an original.

He will be deeply missed.
