Matt was a housemate of mine, our first year at JSU. I have fond memories of him and I riding around the campus , plaintively shouting out 'Tina Louise" at all the girls, as if she were lost among them. Matt was a good man even then. I lost track after I left for U.C. Berkeley . Thanks Matt for your friendship and lunacy...

Dear Robbie & family, I was heartbroken to hear of Matt's passing. I didn't know him personally (which is my loss); but I heard a lot about him from Mother & learned to admire him. I'm grateful that he was such an important part of your lives. May God bless & be with you all. I love you! Susan Whitman Brent

My Dearest Robbie, so sorry to hear the news of your sweet Matt's passing he fought so hard for the last nine yrs. I remember like it was yesterday living in the ICU waiting room for 6 weeks with you praying & fighting to keep our loved ones alive...I lost my brother to the awful battle of life as so did many of the friends & families we became close to those 6 weeks but Matt was one of the lucky ones to have lived 9 more yrs hoping he was not in much pain and had a happy 9yrs with you & his family before his passing. I am sorry I did not take the time to come see my Bama family sooner Robbie. My heart aches for you & your family always remember I am here for you 💔 thoughts & prayers...see you in October!! luv you Robbie 💞 your sis from Iowa, Carma

Matt was one of the most kind, selfless and talented friends I’ve had the honor of knowing since the 1960’s. Some of the best times even until a few years ago was to get together and play music or just jam and see where it went. Matt - your friendship shall always be valued. Thanks and give my regards to Jim K, Cort C, & George F. as y’all rock on the other side. Rest In Peace my old friend and deepest condolences to Robbie , Doug and family.
