Matt graduated from the Journalism program at S.A.I.T. and then embarked on a newspaper career that took him to Brooks, Whistler, Squamish, Chilliwack, Campbell River and Courtenay. Matt was a talented, award-winning journalist and a keen observer of life. He loved to camp and to take long walks. Matt was a sports fan through and through. He played golf, tennis and soccer, and he never missed a Formula 1 race. Matt was a gentle and kind man whose humour brought smiles to all who knew him. He was also a true lover of animals and his family requests that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Red Deer & District S.P.C.A. 4505-77 Street, Red Deer, AB, T4P 2J1.
