I wish to express my heartfelt condolences to Dolora and Amanda for losing your son/brother way too soon. I pray you’ll have comfort in knowing he is resting in Jesus’ loving arms, laughing with Clyde and Kevin and watching vigilantly over both of you. Matt had a kind heart and will be missed by so many. I was blessed to know him.

Words cannot express my sorrow for your loss. Matt and I went to Township together and ironically, even though I have not seen him since ’91, I was just talking about him to someone who ran with Neffsville FD the other night. Life is too short sometimes, and like the saying goes the good go first – and in Matts case this is truth. Again I am so sorry for the terrible loss you have, but know that Matt touched so many lives during his time on Earth – that a jaded man like myself still smiles thinking about him.

Matt was a good man, spent many of hours with him on fire calls in the TWP. Always ready to help in a moments notice and no matter where you bumped in to him at he would take the time to stop and talk. RIP Matt.
