Obituary

Matthew passed away Wednesday, July 18th peacefully with his family at his side after a long battle with kidney disease. He had challenges from the day he was born seven weeks early. Nevertheless, he was kind, generous, and had a warrior's spirit. Matthew worked every day to overcome life's challenges. He loved movies and wrote and published a movie trivia book. He loved training and riding his hand cycle and loved participating in rides throughout the city. He never cared that he came in last and it was inspiring to anyone that saw him cross the finish line. His dream was to become a Personal Trainer and then open a gym focused on those with physical disabilities. He was so close and had only the final essay to complete his certification. Matthew worked as a cashier at Target for the last ten years. Every time we went somewhere, someone recognized him and commented that he was their favorite cashier. He was always in a good mood, talkative, and great with their kids when they were checking out.

Matthew is survived by his parents Tom and Karen, his sister Emma, his brother Steven and sister-in-law Melissa, numerous Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins. A special thanks to his Aunts Kathy, Krista, and Kelly and his cousin Allie who came to hold his hand the past few days. We also want to thank Dr. Melissa Isbell for the care of Matthew for the last ten years as well as thank the nurses and Drs at Methodist Specialty and Transplant ICU as they worked to help Matthew get through this.
