Matthew Brian Sittloh,

49, of Carmel, departed this life at his home on Wednesday, September 1, 2021. Matt was born on July 4, 1972 in Richmond, Indiana to Donald “Jack” and Sharon K. Sittloh. He grew up and attended primary school in the Williamsburg and Fountain City area. He then attended Vincennes University (where he was a pretty good baseball player), and then graduated from Ball State University. He later earned a master’s degree from Full Sail University in Orlando, FL.

Matt was a masterful technician and was involved with audio and visual engineering, sales and management his entire career. He was an incredible resource and expert in his field. From a young age, he loved to disassemble and reassemble electronics. He was also a notorious DJ back in his college days.

Matt was a kind and gentle soul who was happiest making memories with his family and friends. He loved to entertain, was an outstanding cook and backyard griller, a James Bond fan, a regular smiling face at local thrift and antique shops and rarely missed a Cincinnati Reds game.

Matt was a speed walker and chances are, you’ve observed his gait along the sidewalks and paths in Carmel. He was also the founder and president of the Cha Cha Carmel Walking Club. Matt loved his city of Carmel and never met a stranger. He will be sadly missed but never forgotten by his loving family. His children Will, Sam and Ella Sittloh; mother, Sharon Sittloh; father, Donald “Jack” (Sheila) Sittloh; brother, Greg (Erin) Sittloh; grandmother, Lorene George; ex-wife, Rebecca Lynne Wintz; nieces and nephews, Blake, Brandi and Holden Sittloh and Aiden Chapin-Renner and Logan Chapin; his partner, Rhonda Marsh and her children, Tyler and Lily. Matt was preceded in death by his grandparents, Carmon George and Don and Norma Sittloh.

A celebration of life for Matt will begin at 4:00 pm on Sunday, September 5th at Matt’s favorite hangout, PRIME 47 located at 14300 Clay Terrace Blvd., Unit 155, Carmel, IN 46032.

A second celebration for Matt will be from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm on Sunday, September 12th at the Williamsburg Nazarene Church - Fellowship Hall located at 8503 Pleasant St., Williamsburg, IN 47393.

I’ve known Matt for 15 years and he’s always been a great person to work with. His smile was infectious and he made me laugh, all while doing his job!
Sadly……. Matt went way too young.
RIP Brother

Matt and I first met years ago as neighbors, shortly after he moved into Providence. Brockway was usually the place we caught up on things through the week with the changes he was dealing with in his life, and the struggles of mine. Then we both moved our separate ways for a few years, and reunited in early 2020 at The GOAT after he moved back to the area. Didn't take long for us to catch up on the years of separation. He mentioned wanting to do a Cha Cha Walk group and I said I was game since I like to walk anyway. So when 2021 came around, and this spring came, he started it up. Most of the time, it was just him and I doing the walk, and catching a beer at some point. Family, sports, and stocks were the main topics of discussion along the way, with occasional work mixed in. I'm going to miss those moments going forward as it gave us time to connect. His love for his kids was very apparent during our discussions as they often took the most time during the walk to talk about. He is a unique person, and one that will be impossible to replace as a friend. Rest in peace Matt, you're already missed more than you'll understand by many who got to know you.

I've worked with Matt at Epiphan Video since he joined the team in 2018. I was lucky enough to work on a few projects with Matt and I came to know him as a very kind, considerate and appreciative person. This is clearly a testament to his dear family and friends as seen in the many heartwarming condolences. My heart breaks for all of you and I would like to share my most sincere sympathy. He will be sorely missed by myself and the rest of the team at Epiphan.

Words are not easily found for thee best friend.

Matt "StandHigh", as I often called him, and I began our friendship with a 7th grade locker room fight(or wailing of arms) for a reason we never remembered. We became great friends not long after with sharing our taste of music and radio.

His loving mother Sharon being our bus driver made it easy for us to converse daily as we became greater friends. (Double dates, the movies, the dances and many things along the way) I was moved to Indianapolis before 11th grade and Matt was my constant - for what was home. His friendship was one that met so much to me. He provided such support when I had lost my father just before HS graduation.
As we grew our families and careers, our friendship was always there and ready at any time. He has always been my home plate/base.
There are many who have Matt as their best friend, and the reasons are so very clear. Matt brought joy everywhere he was and provided that happiness and comfort to all those surrounding him.

I am so hopeful Matt's family and all friends find comfort, which he would often offer, in the memories of him.

Matt will always be with us all.

To Matt: You'll forever be my bestest of friends.

Matt and I were classmates, Class of 90 at Northeastern High School. He was always wearing a smile, had a heart of gold, wonderful sense of humor. My best memory of Matt is him DJing our school dances and loving every single minute of it. His charm and attitude also made him a great addition to our cheerleading team. My heart is just breaking for Matt's three beautiful children that I have seen grow up via Facebook. They are his living legacy and I hope they can always take comfort that their dad was loved by so many. Such a precious soul that we've lost here on earth.

Matt was my brother's best friend since elementary school. Along with him, his mother and brother were a huge part of our lives growing up. Matt always knew how to light up a room with his smile. This world has lost an amazing man. He will be missed dearly and never forgotten. He and his family are in my thoughts. My deepest condolences to you all.
