He made the world a much better place

Humorous, smart, kind, loving - mastered all things and helped others do the same.

The memories we have are countless and will be cherished for the rest of my life.

Thank you Matthew

I have been struggling with finding the right words to say here all week. I still don’t have them- Matt probably would have helped me. He was such a great guy. He would give you the shirt off his back. He helped me through so much and I can’t believe he’s gone. I picked up my phone to text him today- it just doesn’t seem real. I miss you, Matt.

Sorry for your loss. I met and worked with Cat in Cary NC while working the 2nd shift at MCI. He was always a pleasure to work with and kept everything in perspective.

I had the pleasure of working with Matt many years ago and we always stayed in touch with all the usual electronic modes (FB, Instagram, etc...) after he moved to LA. I was shocked and saddened to learn of his passing but he most certainly would have had some joke about it and sad something to make me end up smiling. Matt was always willing to help out be it advice or just listening. He also rarely was without a smile. You will be missed my friend.

I loved your stories and that you had an answer for everything! You were always supportive of everyone and everything - a true light in this world. I’m grateful I was able to call you friend.

I was the Torts Professor for Matthew Castelli at Abraham Lincoln University College of Law. He was one of our best students and was one of the first members to join the Park Senate of Delta Theta Phi. I'm still in shock that he has passed and wish my condolences to his family and friends. He will be missed.

Godspeed, bud. You'll be missed.
