  1. Matthew was a good friend. A genuinely likeable guy. We first met in grade prep and I’ve considered him to be a friend ever since. I’m so sorry to all of his family for their loss.

    • I am missing my nephew dearly. One of my favourite memories is when he was about 19 he purchased a Valiant Charger he called me because he didn’t know where reverse gear was so I drove from Mill Park to Berwick and showed him. That sticks in my memory
      For ever.
      Love son
      Uncle lawrence.

  7. My condolences to Ross, Judy, Natalie. I’m sorry for the loss of a son and brother.I couldn’t imagine your loss. Emily know that I’m always here. Your strength is amazing. You completed him. Enabled him to look at life positively. Made him whole. To my beautiful girls. Your dads apart of who you are and nothing can ever take that away. He lives within you always. You both have his fire. that you, will take with you in your life. So when your missing him. Look in the mirror and he will be staring back at you. All my love to your family xxxooo

  8. So very sad to hear the news that Matt had passed. We worked together many moons ago and he was a great friend. Emily, everyone saw just how happy you made Matt and how deeply you love him. While your time together was too short, I hope you find some solace in the good times and love you shared with him.

    I will always remember Matt’s genuine kindness to everyone he met. More than anything I admired just how dearly he loved his girls and how much being their dad meant to him. He has left a big hole in the lives of everyone he knew, but he will always be with you in memory.

  9. I’ve only known Matt from online interactions but he was always a top quality bloke with a great sense of humour who cared about others.

    One of the cruellest things I’ll live with is that I never got to shake his hand.

    RIP Matt.

    You will continue to live in my heart till the day I die and I’m the afterlife beyond.
