Brandee has been Matt's high school sweetheart since the 10th grade and together they have two wonderful children Nathan five years old and Karlee two years old. Matt loved his soul mate and especially his children. He always took time after a long day to play with his son and daughter. When Matt was away from home he would talk to or text Brandee on his cell phone to see how her day was. Matt recently spent a week at Captiva Island, Florida for an unforgettable vacation with his wife and children.
Matt was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved being outdoors with his children and took pride in teaching his son to be good sportsmen. Matt liked four-wheeling, dirt biking, and working on demo derby cars with his brother and dad. He also liked helping his friend with his racecar from 1998-2001. Matt was always fun to be around. He liked to make jokes, tease his family and friends and was a "to the point" type of a guy. Matt was a hardworking and responsible man, who took pride in the things he accomplished.
