I didnt personally know Matt but he was my neighbor. Every time I saw him I had to say hello it always seem to make his day. He was a good guy quiet kept to himself. Every night when I got home from work I would walk up the stairs and hear him jamming to his tunes. He never bothered us or anyone I always laughed. I think about him everyday he made me look at life different. Life is a gamble that's forsure. To the family I pray for you... he was again a great man.
