First my condolences to the family, I met Matthew doing Security at the Casino a few years ago. There are so many funny stories that happened on our shift, but the one that had him laughing like i never heard before was Mathew tripped and fell on the casino gaming floor.
Mathew fell forward and his feet ended up in the air, he lost both sneakers and they flew up in the air like a cartoon. Mathew blamed the rug and asked me to find his shoes. He was laughing so hard he couldn't speak.
Mathew became like a brother to me, we filled our snapchats/messages with funny one liners, filtered photos and always checked on eachother. He really was a loyal friend and a brother to me. Love you forever Mathew.

I am so sorry for your loss. Matt was the first little boy that stole my heart. The cutest, kindest and funniest kid. What a loss to everyone that loves him. My love is with all of you.

From the bottom of my heart I am so Sorry for your loss. Matt and I met in middle school and got along instantly. He was always so light hearted and funny, just great to be around. We lost touch after High school but Ive always thought of him as a friend. Matt is someone I'll never forget. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. God bless.

I have a piece of Matthew at my cabin. Matthew and Russ remade the porch . They stayed out at Rushford Lake till they finished it. My heart is broken. I will forever keep his memory. Such a nice young man. RIP Matt

Am so sorry for your loss. He and his brother came across Colvin and helped me clean up a plate and food thrown from a car. They saw me out there and came over with a broom . A generous gesture. I admire their thoughtfulness and kindness. I may not have known him personally, but I greatly feel the loss.
