Born and raised in Santa Barbara, he later attended the Culinary Arts Program at Santa Barbara City College where he developed his passion for cooking. He was known for his ?tasty' original sauces at many BBQ's cooking and singing "Put a lime in the coconut". Matthew was a gifted craftsman and he especially enjoyed building log furniture, but his work was in the family pest control business helping build it for over 20 years.
Matthew was raised and baptized in the First Baptist Church of Santa Barbara where he grew in his faith and love in God. He loved Jesus.
Matthew's many interests included family and friends, camping and fishing, dirt biking, BBQ's and hanging out with his dog Cleo.
He especially cherished his time spent with his nieces and nephews. He was a fun and loving Uncle. He so enjoyed the many children's fiesta parades, helping to build and pull their floats. He was loads of fun and he loved his role as "Uncle Matt".
