Matthew Hanks Memorial Fund

Matthew Payton Hanks, born March 8, 1973, passed away suddenly on the morning of April 11, 2018. He had a great sense of humor and a huge heart. Throughout his life, between his jokes, his kindness and his excellent skills as a chef, he brought joy to a lot of people's lives. He is leaving behind a lot of people who loved him and he will be sorely missed. If you have any stories or memories of Matt that you would like to share, we would love to see them in the comments or hear about them at the memorial. For all those able to attend, the memorial service will be held from 1-3pm at Conroy Funeral Home in Springfield, OH.

Matt had just started a new job and life insurance had not kicked in yet to aid in the expenses of his memorial. If you have anything to spare, even the smallest donation, it would be greatly appreciated. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers during this trying time.
