Matthew grew up and resided on the Northside of Lethbridge where he met and married his wife, Kaylee. One of the most important elements of their lives was their child (fur baby) Jax. While nurturing his new addition, Matthew attended LCC and achieved his Red Seal Journeyman Welding certificate. Matthew’s interest included camping and fishing, longboarding, visiting the firing range, snowboarding, golfing, street bikes and anything that involved his buddies. He was well known and loved by his family, friends and co-workers. Matthew would give you the shirt off of his back if he knew it would help. He will be missed for his unforgettable sense of humor, his candid sense of laughter and most of all his desire to have fun. Live to ride, ride to live.
