Matthew was an avid Yankees fan and really enjoyed fishing and hunting. Matt was extremely proud of being awarded the Marine of the Year Award in 2015. He was an active member of the Cercemaggiore Community Club, and greatly enjoyed his mornings at Dunkin Donuts and Sal’s Barbershop with his cherished friends, as well as Wednesday breakfasts at Jimmy’s with his CL&P gang and Wednesday night cards with his favorite Italians. Family meant the world to Matthew and he will be deeply missed by all those who were blessed to love and know him.
