I had the pleasure of meeting Matt through the DSS Impact project. We spent many hours together during the implementation of the project. His dedication and work ethic was undeniable. He and I became good friends and stayed in contact after he left the project. We had many conversations about hockey. I will miss him dearly. My thoughts and prayers go out to Matt's family who he spoke about so proudly. Rest in Peace my friend.
