My sincere condolences. I knew Matt through ballroom dancing and always enjoyed dancing with him. He was passionate about dancing and learning more about it. I was so impressed with his performances at our most recent event in June! And I also found Matt to be a lot of fun to chat with on just about anything; he was clearly engaged with life and had a great sense of humor about it, too.

Matthew and I worked on a lot of signage projects together over the many years. His skills and professional attitude was always present. He will be missed at Sterico Signs.

God Bless

I knew Matt through ballroom dance. Regardless of dance level he made you feel comfortable as a follower and offered words of encouragement. Always enjoyed our hustles! May his family and friends find comfort in the memories you shared.

I loved dancing with Matt. He was very generous with his compliments and never made disparaging remarks when I made mistakes. We laughed all the time. We loved doing the swing together. He was very sweet natured and funny. His sense of humor was always appreciated. I will miss him tremendously.

I knew Matt from dancing. He and I shared a love of Waltz where most dancers prefer Foxtrot or Tango. He had a marvelous dance frame with a wonderful lead.

I knew Matt from the world of ballroom dancing.

He was so helpful to me, as we often stood side-by-side in group classes.

"You got this?" he would ask.

When the answer was "no", he'd say "try to think of it like..." and that would help so much.
