My sympathy goes out to the family for their loss. For the love of family and his great love and happiness for the births of their boys Tyler and Ryan. He worked hard and fought the cancer to have more time with those he dearly loved.He had a family that was by is side and united. Matt dealt with brain cancer and it was a fight but he he did it with his smile and the love from those that loved him. We should all think of the laughter, smiles and enjoyment that he so loved because you were all by his side united. We should think of how he tuned his life around and helped others that needed help. Think of a fun time you have had and carry that memory within. Matt now has no pain, no treatments and now I am sure he is watching over you and we should all remember a great family or friendship that we shared with him - Don't ever stop talking about Matt for that will always keep his memory alive. Go in peace Matt you will be missed!

Our entire family would like to send our condolences. Matt & I were good friends from a young age and I have many wonderful memories which I will always cherish. Whenever I think of Matt, I will always remember the smile which was almost always present. As I have said many times recently, though Matt had his struggles in life as we all do, he made the most of it over the last few years. What he gave to others, in the end, will last forever and will never be forgotten. Romans 8:28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
