Matthew was a resident of both Modesto and Manteca. He attended Beyer High, Elliott High and graduated from Calla High in Manteca. Matthew was extremely intellectual, intrigued by both science and history. He was a respectful young man who loved unconditionally. His silly, talkative personality always made others feel at ease. Family times were the most important times to Matthew, especially when everyone was together camping at the lake or spending days at a time house boating. He was a true outdoorsman, feeling comforted when spending time at the beach or in any natural outdoor setting. He loved all animals big and small. Matthew could spend hours challenging friends and gamers to an evening of video games or playing magic card games. He was an avid music fan loving all types of genres. Matthew will be remembered for his gentle, kind and loving spirit. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
