I am thankful to have had the chance to know Matt at DRS. My family knew him as “The Egg Man” as he occasionally brought me farm fresh eggs that I took home, including every Easter. That has been a fun tradition the last few years and I will always remember Matt each Easter now. He was a pleasure to work with and I will miss his farm/ranch stories about donkeys and even zebras. My family and I have the entire McCarty in our prayers during this very difficult time.

Still in shock about hearing of Matt's passing. He and Heidi were long-time co-workers; their smiles always brightened the halls at work; the world will miss Matt's smile... My deepest condolences to Heidi and the family.
