    Uncle Matt was a really special figure in my childhood and I'm heartbroken to hear of his passing. He was a vibrant and fun-loving man who could always make me laugh. Moments of joy and laughter with him will always hold a special place in my heart. He is greatly missed.

    Matt came to work for me in my landscaping business in 1987 to the mid '90s. We were always good friends and helped each other out on jobs. There wasn't a tree he couldn't climb and take down. He was the hardest worker I ever had. No one could apply mulch, edge beds, or plant trees as fast as us. I will always miss hearing from him. RIP, Matt, and save me a spot in Heaven.
