Matt is one of my 1st cousins. Growing up he stayed with us in Ohio for a brief time during a summer. He lit up that summer with fun! I can remember my brother Kris and I fighting over who would get to sit by Matt.! He turned it into some kind of funny game. As we grew up, Matt was someone we all looked forward to seeing when he would come up from Texas to visit his Ohio family. He was a warm and caring soul and I will always remember him that way. May his bright spirit inspire all of us that were blessed to have known him.

The footprint you left in our lives, the legacy you left behind. Everywhere we look a part of you is there. We can still hear your conversations about stacking dimes & fixing cars. We will forever remember our children babysitting yours and hearing you talk to them about music and playing guitar on my front porch. You’ve been a best friend. Always so giving and always at your service. Matthew Morgan was there to save the day and make it happen. Matt you were a dreamer, a creator and a doer! We have been and will continue to be totally inspired by you. ❤️

I met Matt through our mutual friend Ali. From the get go Matt was a friend. He had more character than most. I never heard him say anything bad about anyone. Matt made stickers and shirts for our club with such artistic intent. We would give him idea and somehow he came back with something so much more than what we asked. I am a better man for having him in my life the short time I did.I am grateful his family shared him with us. Peace to you brother.

Matt was one of the first people I met when joining NI. He was so soft spoken and had this calming effect that made it easy and comfortable to talk to him. He would talk about his wife Kelly with such a love and sparkle in his eye. I remembering thinking “wow” you don’t find many men who openly express their affection for their spouse in random, new co-worker side conversation very often. I was so excited to not only meet Kelly, but to witness the love these two had in person. It was magical seeing true once and a lifetime soulmates. Matt loved Kelly big and then came children; I saw Matt’s love grow even bigger. One of my fondest memories is the day Kelly got released from the hospital after having Avery. Poor Kelly was tired and you could tell she was ready to go home. However, Matt was a proud father and in true Lion King fashion he first brought his family up to work to show us all his new son, Avery. Matt, you were an amazing human and although we have not spoken for a few years you will be greatly missed. Peace and love!

Matt, where’d you go? You were an institution, always going to be around. Someone I’d bump into at a car show or you and Kelly in downtown Burnet. Thinking about you back over 30 years brings so many memories back to the surface. Riding around in the green Valiant with those elegant Taco Bell lightning bolt stickers, skateboarding, shop-class, tin-roof apartments, the band in my parents living room, loitering at Jim’s or watching you progress through phases of Robert Smith to kicker and back to just, well, Matt. Everyone you met was a friend and you were a gateway to a whole other cast of characters in what I would consider some of my most formative years. Thank you Matt! My heart goes out to you, Kelly, your family and all those who had the privilege of meeting and knowing you.

Matt,

I miss ya bud! I will never forget how you and your family welcomed me and my wife to the neighborhood with open arms. From the random walks across the street to chat, to the hours of brainstorming business ideas, to our love of all things mechanical, you’ll never be forgotten. Your friendship will always be special to me and your family will always be welcome in our home and our lives.

I met Matt in high school. We shared the same hatred of Westwood. He was one of the few friends I had that both my parents approved of. I remember when I saw him for the first time after I moved back to the area. We picked up right where we left off, just with kids and spouses and adult responsibilities. He was still the same Matt. Caring, funny and always willing to help anyone. I was so blessed to be able to call him my friend. He loved Kelly and Avery and Parker with everything he had. Losing him has created a void in everyone's lives who knew him. We're all going to miss him terribly.

I met Matt working at NI. I was lucky enough to get to sit next to him. Every day was filled with cut-ups, filthy language and pain inducing laughter. One of my favorite laughing seizures was when Matt pulled up a post of the worst album covers ever. By the time we got to “The Handless Organist, Truly a miracle of God”, Matt could barely spit out the words, “You should hear her version of In-a-gadda-da-vida.” We laughed so hard, someone farted, I won’t say who, but I will always think of that day and smile. It was worth all the dirty looks we got from the people that didn’t get our Pod 6 jokes. I’m honored to have known him. What a unicorn he was!

He and his family were one of my first friends I made when I moved to Texas. They took this California girl in and made her feel like family. They tried to teach me the Texan ways while teasing me pretty much the entire time (which I enjoyed as well). Matt had the biggest heart. He never knew a stranger. Every person he met was a friend and he let you know that. He was always there when I needed him whether it was to fix something or just listen to me complain. More than anything, I loved him for loving one of my dearest friends, Kelly. He loved her unconditionally, showed his admiration and affection for her daily.
