Matthew was born on October 25, 1974 in Omaha, NE. Matty was a native of the Midwest but his time in Germany, Boulder, Colorado, and Tucson, Arizona enriched his life and extended his horizons. He made friends everywhere he went, and made everyone laugh. His family is honored to have been a part of his life. Matty taught us so much about so many things that we could not have appreciated without his unique view on the world. He gave so much love and joy. A supernova. We will miss his positive energy every day, and yet his presence is in our hearts always.

Look Matthew, they did such a Beautiful job with this. I will not be surprised to see that place packed when the day comes. You left your mark on so many of us. I am better for having known you & having had you in my life for as long as I did. Almost 36 years worth of Best Friendship between us. No matter what life had for us or where we ended up in the world, we always found our way back to each other in his life. I will miss you Always my Dear Friend!! I find peace in knowing that you were loved so much by so many in this life. I know for myself, I will continue on trying to look at things more like you did & share the kindness you shared with the world. My thoughts & prayers are with your family now. May we all cling to the Beautiful Memories we have of you.

Matthew, you always viewed the world in a different light (which I liked)! When I was new to tucson you showed me around and introduced me to people and made me feel welcome. I will always remember the phone calls, emails and text messages! You were a true inspiration for so many! May you fly high and May you be reunited with Gus again! Sending you so much love to you and your family during this difficult time!

Matthew, I can not say good bye, it will always be “chat with you later”. I dug out the old high school year books and there you were, smiling, laughing and binging you. I will always remember the talent show ( I believe our freshman year ) Weird Al Like a Surgeon…I have never laughed has hard as I did that night. I will miss your advice, our debates and just everyday chats. My thoughts and prayers go to your family and all your wonderful friends. ” Chat with you later”

Matty-Pooh, you were always seven & I was always four. We met at MMI in Boulder (in 1997?), a forever friendship at first sight. We emailed every weekday, you ‘addicted’ to the Daily’s I sent out. I laughed so hard the time you stayed with me for a relative’s wedding, that I didn’t know if I could survive it ~ that totally out-of-control laughter we all love so much. Thank You for BE-ing. And for hanging in there as long as you did. We all wish we could have had your physical presence for a few more decades, for sure. For me, I know you are right here with us, experiencing your Heavenly Bliss, your great RELIEF from all things physical (pain/limitations), ready to join in, as always. Your friends love you deeply & well. As you also loved each of us. Your family is/was also everything to you. What a huge family, Matty! I wish them all deeply satisfying dreamtimes with you, w/them waking feeling even more alive & refreshed from their interactions with you. See you anon, dear funny, big-hearted, brilliant friend. There was never one like you & there will never ever be again! Thanks for being my forever friend.

I remember the first time I met you. You were in your room upstairs in the Gallatin house. Your room was a fascinating spectacle…creatures, fish tanks, curiosities in abundance. You had the warmest smile that made everyone around you feel the safety you always wanted. Your eyes were so giving and kind. I remember your hugs, I remember being fascinated by your intelligence and your humor. I absolutely adored your uniqueness and to say this realm is now missing a light would be an understatement. Thank you for living your life deliberately. I pray the love those felt for you in the earthly passing, is now known to you.
Jacqui Sands says
Matty I simply love you. We were kindred suffering spirits with enough inner conflict to power a shuttle launch. Now you and your incredible spirit can finally be at rest for the first time. Enjoy the eternal peace my dear friend.
Patty, Carrie & the boys- there are no words to comfort you. My heart goes out to each of you.

Hi Matthew. Can’t get my mind around the idea that you have died from Covid.
Wishing you peace on your new journey.

Oh Matty…words to describe you, your life, your love of others and the world are hard to come up with. There are not enough words in any dictionary or in any language that would be fitting enough or describe you. You were so special, unique and a once in a lifetime kind of friend. We’ve known each other so long and you helped me with things that only you would know how. You sere there for me and my youngest 2 sons (especially Wyatt) when I had so many questions and you always said that I was doing amazing, even when I felt I was falling short. You looked out for Wyatt and became a great friend to him and someone he knew he could confide in for honesty and kinship. He looked great at prom with his date. You’d have been proud. Keep shining your beautiful light down on us and enjoy your peace, finally, and I know Gus Gus was waiting on you with his tail a wagging, just waiting for daddy snuggles. We’re going to miss you so very much…but thank you for the greatest honor, being our friend and loving us so unconditionally. Hugs and love.
