Celebration of the beautiful Matt

Unfortunately on 21st November we received the heart breaking news of Matt passing away whilst living his dreams out in America. With such a big personality he touched the lives of people all over the world and for this reason in memory of matt his close family and friends believes he deserves a send off that represents the larger than life character he was.  Matt's passing will leave a void that nothing will ever be able to fill with his infectious laugh, spontaneous personality and positive outlook on life. His adventurous attitude ensured that he achieved everything he strived too. It goes without saying he will forever be the brightest diva in the sky.  Having close family and friends across both America and England Matt is going to be cremated in America where he spent his final years 'living his best life' as he frequently remind us. Matt's brother Mike will then fly to England with his ashes to bring him home to his mum. The donations from this page will go towards fulfilling these wishes over the next couple of weeks when arrangements are finalised by his family.  From all Matt's close family and friends we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for any donations.
