Cherished son of George and Marion and loved younger brother to Kate (Jerrod). Mathew is predeceased 15 years ago by his Dad who Mathew thought of and missed every day especially after becoming a Dad himself. McKenna brought giggles, singing and dancing as only a happy 2 year old can to a grown up’s complicated life. Mathew was his best when he was with McKenna and was so looking forward to experiencing the country life with her-walks and exploring with their dog Lex through the bush or running through a field of hay or simply playing in the dirt with a stone or stick. Kate and Granny will try to keep these dreams and make them a reality for McKenna and keep a memory of her Dad with her. Hopefully, she may remember her high, high airplane rides through the air. Mathew was fortunate to have many good friends, some who doubled up as cousins. The saying goes you can’t pick your family like you pick your friends, but not in this case. Mathew also had his work family with Michanie Construction where he worked for 10 years.
