I was so sorry to hear of Matt's passing. He was a good guy and a good insurance agent while we were in New Jersey and I always enjoyed dealing with him.

My heart goes out to you and the entire family. May God give you strength, peace and comfort.

Doreen, Kevin and Kaitlyn,
Matt’s heart was always open and very kind to our family. He will be remembered for his warmth, humor and genuine appreciation of our daughter Aviana. If you had the pleasure of his company you experienced his contagious positive uplifting spirit.
He will be missed and angel never forgotten.

A beautiful quote by Thomas Campbell says, to live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.

We are blessed to have known him and his beautiful family. Please know you are all in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
Sincerest condolences,

Matt was a wonderful peaceful man and a genuine family man. As you described in his obituary, he enjoyed his free time lounging on the hammock or sitting on the backyard chairs. I just saw Matt there last week and he always managed to wave or share a hello.
Our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy. You are in our thoughts during this difficult time and if you ever need anything we are just next door.
