Matt had a long and notable career in the sign industry where he loved to teach others the craft of sign installation and maintenance. He had many highlights in the sign business, most especially hanging the banners on buildings in the Salt Lake area for the 2002 Olympics. He was very proud of that work. His second career was as a mechanic on Harley Davidson and Indian motorcycles. He loved riding his motorcycle and helping others to have that same thrill.
Matt had a quirky sense of humor. He made a joke of everything and always thought the smallest things were hilarious. He loved adventure and always thought he should be having one. Matt had many dear friends, most of them since elementary school. This group of friends has a great love for one another and were always there for each other no matter what. He loved that they called him “Phatty”. His legacy is that he gave people the gift of his time, there was nothing he wouldn’t do for the people he cared about. He was loving and sweet to everyone. He leaves behind a whole lot of love and will be sorely missed.
