Matthew and his wife, Jennifer, spent 10 wonderful years together as a couple. They were married October, 27th 2014. His love for the San Francisco 49ers and NASCAR’s Jimmie Johnson was rivaled only by his love for Jennifer. Matthew captured the heart of everyone he met with his infectious smile and warm heart. He cared deeply for people and had never met a stranger. He loved spending time at home with his wife and mastering Wii Golf.
