Matthew Taylor Dunlap

March 7, 1993September 10, 2018

Matthew Taylor Dunlap completed his walk along life’s mortal path on Monday, September 10, 2018. His parents Laura (Clark) and Jeff watched over him with love and compassion as his pain and suffering came to an end.

Matthew lived a life full of love and humor. He laughed loudly, spoke softly and loved unconditionally. His passions in life included a love of nature and a love for music. He had physical challenges throughout his life, yet on the inside his strength and courage were bigger than the mightiest Redwood that ever existed. Like his favorite band, Lamb of God, the roar of his life will be forever felt as he rests peacefully like a lamb cradled in the hands of God.

Matthew is survived by his loving parents, Laura (Clark) Vielstich and Jeff Dunlap; siblings, Alec Vielstich, Tyler Clayson, Kaari Vielstich, Angela Clayson; niece, Delilah Davis and nephew, Kyvan Nadeau; grandparents, Chuck and Leslie Matson, Wolfram and Delores Vielstich, Richard and Hazel Branstiter. He is preceded in death by, Andrea Clayson (aunt), Edna Dunlap (grandmother), Mark Dunlap(uncle), Cynthia Hudson(aunt).

A celebration of life will be held on Friday, September 14, 2018 from 6-8pm at the Valley View Funeral Home, 4335 West 4100 South.
