He was also a proud member of the Red Men's Hall in Stoneham. Matt had a contagious smile that everyone felt when he walked in a room. He made everything fun, so many of us would go anywhere if Matt were going to be there. He was that guy! You knew he would make you laugh, and he always laughed at himself, which we all found so endearing. He was a loyal friend with nearly everyone who ever met him. Matt loved being around family and friends. He was a passionate Boston sports fan who enjoyed Cape Cod vacations and going out to restaurants.
