Matthew was born September 15, 1979, in Kansas City, Missouri, to the late Stephen D. Babin and Julia A. (Oliver) Babin.
Matthew was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy as an infant, but never let his disability dampen his sweet personality and joy of life. He had a deep love of family and friends, and was happiest when among them.

He attended school in Los Angeles, California, and later in Camdenton, Missouri, where he graduated in May 2000. Matthew was employed at Kingdom Projects, Fulton, Missouri, up until fall of 2013 when illness prevented his attendance.

Oliver, Farmington, Missouri; aunt Jeanne Landes, Farmington, Missouri; aunt Kay (Gene) Greenhaw, Ellettsville, Indiana; uncle David (Debbie) Oliver, Farmington, Missouri; aunt Jan (David) Harlan, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; aunt Lynn Harbach, New Port Richey, Florida; and many cousins.
