  • Sending Prayers and love to Matt’s Family and friends. He left Big foot prints to fill. He is truly missed by all.

  • I wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. Matt was a fine young man and I had the pleasure of coaching him in my first years of coaching football at MV. I probably learned more from him than he did from me because he taught me not to take life so seriously and enjoy the moment along with finding humor in things. That was a lesson I needed to learn as a coach. He always took the time to find the positives in life, and I was truly blessed to have the chance to know Matt. Matt was a man of high character, and I know his legacy will live on through his kids and family. He will be truly be missed by all. He touched so many lives. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

    God Bless,

    Bryan Donaldson
