Following his education, and encouraged by his family, Matt began his career as an elevator constructor, first with Alaska Pacific Elevator in Anchorage and later in Seattle.

Matt was preceded in death by his father Douglas. He is survived by his 2 adoring children Jordan and Emily, his mother Susan and step father Eric, 3 brothers Tony, Tim, and Andy, and 1 sister Agnes, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

We will all remember Matt for his warm smile and infectious laughter, love of life, generosity, and kindness towards people and all creatures.

    I remember Matthew, with his inviting smile, when he was a young boy. He was always fun to be around and I liked it when his Mom, Susan, and his brothers and sister came to our house to visit at family reunions.

    I’m thinking of you, Susan, your kids, and Jordan and Emily as you mourn your loss. I’m sending warm, comforting energy and hope you find comfort.

    Much love, Miren
