Even though I moved away we always kept in contact and in our recent conversations I’ll never forget how strong you were when you were faced with hard situations. I love you brother. I believe in God so I know one day we’ll meet again. Look out for all of us down here we need it

Mathew I knew as a child and he was such a sweet boy. One time my little one Emily Graziano cut her leg so bad when she was about 5 years old and Mathew carried her from our neighbors crossing 2 acres to bring her to us and asked us if we needed him to come with us to the hospital. My heart is so broken to hear this and prayers to his family to heal in this terrible loss.

Matt, where to even start. We went from diapers to dirtbikes. Sleepovers and pool parties. The banks and coonies to play Intense games of manhunt lol. You're in the majority of my childhood and teenage memories. And for that I'll be forever thankful. We'll keep your memory alive, always. Love you, until we meet again brother. 🖤💔🤘

I grew up riding dirt bikes next to the house Matt grew up in. Every time I was the he would come over n watch. He love motorcycles n would have me n Johny Lawrence jump over him. He was a great person n went out doing something he loved. I can only hope to be that lucky. God speed buddy till we meet again.

I love you Matt. You are missed. One final thing I have to say to you is, “Leche.” You’re the only one who knows what this means. I’ll miss the laughs. Watch over all of us Guardian Angel <3.

From the first day Matty stepped into the business, he’s practically been by my side. I knew immediately he was going to be an outstanding worker just from his strong work ethic. Punctual, prepared, always first to jump in, and always willing to learn. What I didn’t know, was how close I was going to get with Matty. He was truly like a younger brother to me. We shared many of the same values and he always looked to me for advice. The passion for his family and the pride in his work are just a couple traits I loved about him. But what was most memorable to me was his ability to make the boys laugh. Matty’s unique sense of humor always left an imprint on the crew. There’s not enough words to describe what a great person Matty was.

I can’t express enough how much You will be missed. You will always be remembered my friend. I love you kid.

Had the pleasure of calling Hick not only a friend but a fellow Iron Worker brother. I’ll always remember the times we were partnered up together, blasting Pantera on the radio, taking turns welding away on the iron ! Getting paid to do something that we love.
I don’t know how to put it but he was just Hick ! He has a personality all to himself that just made you laugh. He was a dam good ironworker and I always felt safe knowing that he had my back. You will be deeply missed and always remembered.

RIP brother your the best and yes your a better welder than me.
