    • Matt, you came in to Wbs when I was working one day, and completely changed my outlook on life, you cheered me up and made me realize I could walk through flames if I had too. You had that big kind of personality. You were filled with life and loved. You will be greatly missed friend.

  2. Dear Matt, there is a big void in our lives with you gone. The gift of your life, your being, touched many lives. May You Rest In Peace. Sending love, Matt.❤️

  3. Our dear friend “cowboy Matt”
    We had the huge pleasure of hosting you when you came to Manchester UK in 2016 and you became a member of our family. We laughed and cried together but I’ll most remember your mischief, the twinkle in your eyes and your deadpan jokes. You touched our lives and we will never, ever forget you. See you again one day my lovely friend xx

  5. My sympathies to Sheri and Jerry and the rest of the family. Always enjoyed hearing about his community spirit. May your memories comfort you all.
