Matthew Shutt Memorial Fund

On Thursday, May 25, 2017, Matthew Boyd Shutt unexpectedly took his final trip home.  A husband, son, friend, and an Adaptive Physical Education Teacher, Matthew had an infectious light, which reached every soul he encountered.  He loved his job and was beloved by his students and colleagues. 

Originally from Buffalo, NY, Matt moved to Maryland to teach. It is here that he met his wife Christina “Renee,” a special educator.  Together, these educators, avidly participated in Special Needs outreach through many programs and events.  Matt and Christina loved their impactful work, as much as their love for each other.

This campaign, organized by close friends and family, aims to defray any upcoming costs, including the funeral arrangements, Christina will encounter both in the immediate and distant future.  All donations will be presented along with everyone's thoughts and support. We encourage you to post a memory, prayer or thought as we look to support Christina and we still want to remember the amazing man that Matt was, his smile, his laugh, his caring nature, and the fact that we are all better people for having called him our friend.

We are so thankful for any donation, support, prayer, or comment. Please share this campaign and help us be a shoulder for Christina to lean on in this time.

Matthew Boyd Shutt, we will always love and miss you.
