Matt Reid Memorial Fund

Matt's love of life and infectious laugh filled a room.

He was warm and open. He was the friend inviting the new guy in the office on a fishing trip; the loving dad ready to dress up as a pumpkin for his kids at Halloween; and the doting husband planning a surprise birthday party for his wife in a tropical paradise. His friends and family meant the world to him.

Matt was a husband, a dad, a son, a brother, and most of all a friend.

On the 6th of June, Matt lost his life tragically in a surfing accident in El Salvador, leaving behind his wife Kelly and their two young children, Sloane and Max.

In memory of Matt, and in support of his family, this Go Fund Me page has been created by his friends. 

All proceeds will go directly to Kelly, Sloane, and Max to help them mitigate any unforeseen costs related to Matt's passing and help support them in the months to come.

We are touched by generosity of any amount for this deserving family. For large individual donations, please contact Reid family CPA Rick Lloyd. He is best equipped to handle larger sums and can be reached directly at [email redacted].
