Matt was an avid sportsman who enjoyed hunting, fishing and golf with friends and family. He loved nature and had the benefit of seeing birds, squirrels, turkey and deer right from his back porch. From early on in his life, he was a cowboy which involved team penning and showing cutting horses in competitions. His delightful and courageous spirit will forever be remembered by all.
