Matt was born in Dallas, TX before the family relocated to West Brookfield, MA where they were all raised on a beautiful farm surrounded by woods, fields and all the outdoor activities kids could want. Matt graduated Quaboag Regional High School and grew up riding 4-wheelers, dirtbikes, motorcycles and operating any tractors and machinery that he could get his hands on. The hardest of workers, he excelled in all the skilled trades working as an electrician and pouring concrete foundations. He earned his Construction Supervisors License and owned and operated his own company remodeling homes. Matt acquired all hoisting and truck licenses he could to learn all aspects of construction. He most recently worked as an Assistant Project Manager for Thorndike Development. His life really started when he became a father in 2009.
His daughter became the focal point of his life and everything he did he did for her. Their bond turned into the most amazing friendship. They played video games together, baked pies and made family dinners together, he would travel to watch her perform and compete in figure skating, he loved to play pranks on her and take her out to eat and out for ice cream anytime she wanted to. Everyone who knew and loved Matt will miss him dearly.
