Matthew Schilling, Sr. Memorial Fund

Dear friends and family,

We are deeply saddened to announce that Matthew Schilling, Sr. has passed onto his heavenly home on March 19, 2020 at the age of 56. Born Matthew Lewis Schilling on February 27, 1964, he married the love of his life, Jannette M. Wyatt, on October 13, 2011. He leaves behind his three boys: Shaun, Jordan, and Matthew Jr., and grandchildren: Inara, Treyton, Delany, and Aleenah.

Matthew's eternal love for his family was arguably his greatest quality. Anytime that a family member was in need, he was there with love, support, and without hesitation.

In the wake of his passing, the family is overcome with grief. This fund is designed to alleviate the financial burden that follows his loss. Any donations will be used to pay for funeral/memorial expenses, posthumous debt, and the remainder will compensate his widow, Jannette, in her time of need.

To quote one of Matthew's favorite artists, Lynyrd Skynyrd: "I was born to run, can't slow down. No regrets, I've been blessed. Born to run,
in time you'll see - what the good Lord's done for me."
