I worked with Matt and thought he was one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet. Sometimes we would work together as partners and he always was very respectable, helpful, polite when he didn't have to be. We would discuss different things. He was very leval headed, did exceptional job, was a quick learner and quick to offer a helping hand. During many of his conversasions he always spoke highly of his family especially his Mother. The family's loss as drastically effected me. I have prayed many prayers for Matt and his family. It is my prayer that the Lord will give you the strength to face the days ahead. Matt will definitely be missed. He was such a wonderful person with so may good qualities. Even though his life was short, I thank the Lord for enabling me to have the pleasure of knowing him.

Dear Finfrock Family, I knew Matt from working with him at Lear/IAC. I regret not being able to attend the service. Please know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I was shocked to hear of this unfortunate tragedy. I remember Matt as a very intellegent individual with a great deal of potential. It is comforting to know he is in a peaceful place... He spoke highly of his family - especially his Mother Barb and Aunt Violet. Thankfully his two beautiful children can carry on his spirit.
