Tribute & Message From The Family

Fredrick Matthew "Matt" Brymer, age 60, passed away peacefully on Monday, August 31, 2020 in San Antonio, Texas. He was born June 6, 1960 in Carrizo Springs, Texas to Dorothy Sammann Brymer and John Harvey Brymer, III.

He is preceded in death by his parents, John Harvey Brymer, III and Dorothy Sammann Brymer. Matt is survived by his wife of 35 years, Trish Brymer, and their daughter, Christy, and husband Drew Purdy, as well as their son, Chris. He is also survived by his brothers, James Brymer, and wife Malinda, and John Brymer IV, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, and a lifetime of friends he cherished deeply.

Matt grew up in South Texas with his family, who moved several times among small towns before they settled down in Pleasanton, Texas. He grew up loving the outdoors and spent many weekends hunting and fishing with his family. He was very active at Pleasanton High School, where he played football, basketball, tennis, ran track, played tuba in the band, and sang in the choir. He often would tell you that he was All State Choir during his senior year of high school. Matt graduated from Pleasanton High School in 1979 and continued his education at Southwest Texas (Texas State) University. At Southwest Texas, he joined the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity. It was with his fraternity that he gained an amazing group of fraternity brothers and lifelong friends. He also met his wife, Trish, while attending Southwest Texas and they were married in San Antonio, Texas on August 10, 1985. Matt graduated from Southwest Texas University in December of 1986 with a Bachelor of Science in Education. He spent the next 20 years of his life fulfilling his passion for coaching football at Kirby Middle School in the Judson Independent School District in San Antonio, Texas. Matt impacted many young people's lives. He loved football and his athletes like they were his own children, but made the difficult decision to leave coaching in 2007 so that he could work for his brother's safety company in the oil industry. He loved working with his family and the opportunity to talk to people all day long.

Matt and Trish were blessed with two children: their eldest daughter, Christy, and son, Chris. Matt was completely devoted to his family and instilled strong values and a love of the Lord into them. Church, family, and football came first for Matt. He enjoyed being involved in of all his children's activities, from dance team to football at MacArthur High School. He spent many weekends hunting, fishing, camping, floating the Frio River, and playing golf. If you were lucky enough to meet Matt, you would become a fast friend; he never let anyone walk away a stranger. He welcomed everyone into his home and, for that reason, many friends turned into family. Always the life of the party, Matt was truly a joy to be around. And, as a man of integrity, he never gave up on anything he set his mind to. He fought a year-long battle with cancer, all the while staying relentlessly true to his faith. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends, but they take comfort in knowing he had accepted Jesus as his Savior and is no longer in pain; he is finally at peace and rejoicing in Heaven.

After the "eviction party," we were both out on the street, my brother. Even so, we made it through the semester somehow. I missed seeing you when you were on Maui, but I got to give you a big hug in San Marcos. Godspeed and God be with you, Matt, and with us all. Prayers to your wonderful family along with my deep condolences. YITB,
