Today we lost a good man. Shawn Matricardi was an extraordinary individual for all those who knew him well. He was the protector and provider of his family. A highly passionate and engaging individual that loved those closest to him without limits. He was the kinda guy that you wanted around. He would tell you exactly what he thought and how he felt. This was one of his many great and rare qualities. He never backed down from anything and hated to lose an argument. He was the first one to ask if you need any help and would be the last one to leave no matter the circumstance. Today his diabetes got the better of him. He is survived by his 3 sons, Brendan 17, Derek 16, Caleb 13. We are raising money to cover funeral expenses and to help out his family in the truly hard times they are in. Shawn we will always remember you in the moments that life continues to grant those of us that are still here and we will see you again in the life that follows this one. May God always bless and keep you my dear friend.
