Great guy . I remember Matt chewing I remember Matt chewing on his cigar and watching us play baseball at edge water and keeping all the stats. Also when Dave and I used to bowl at Ambassador lanes .
Matt was the perfect example of how to support your sports team without saying a word or arguing with an umpire or challenging a call . A lot of parents could learn a lesson about how you support a team without being a distraction . God bless you Matt . Rest in peace .
