Matt, you were as much apart of our family as any of us kids are. You were like another brother to me. We all miss you very much and its hard to know I wont see you every other day. As tough as it is to understand I know riding was your passion and you wouldn’t have wanted to go any other way. Your in a good place now and you will be safe. I love you very much and I miss you already. Rest in peace… I try to remind myself he only takes the best!
McGuire Family says
We met Matt through our daughter and son-in-law, Anita and Josh, and enjoyed his visits to our home on Coon Lake. He became a friend to us over the years and we are honored to have known him. He was truly a delight to have around. We will miss his smile as he enjoyed fishing and spending time with all the kids. He adored our twin grand-daughters and they loved him as an uncle. He spoke of his family often and our thoughts and prayers are with them at this very difficult time. God bless you and know that Matt is with Jesus in heaven.

Matt, it hurts so much to know that you aren’t here on Earth anymore, that I can’t just call and talk to you, and it hurts even more to see what this has done to our family. Mama, Daddy, Tracy, Paula, Sami, Robert, Caleb, Braden,Brad,Dennis, and lastly me your biggest oldest “sis” miss you so much that it’s hard to believe you’re gone. All I can say Little brother is that time drags too slowly and the day I see you again in heaven will be the happiest of my life. I love you so much kiddo! love forever, your sister, Shannon
