Matthew began his career working in the Midwest for many years before relocating to Massachusetts where he met his beloved wife Therese, over 30 years ago, relocating one more time to the seacoast area landing at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY), Kittery, ME.
Matthew made a career change after the birth of his eldest son Jack starting his own business Foodee’s Pizza/Wildcat Pizza, York, ME. After the birth of his daughter Madalyn he acquired Downeast Doughnuts, Eliot, ME from the original owners Andy and Anne Mantis before returning to PNSY after the birth of his youngest son Neil.
Matthew enjoyed life, family and friends. He had many interests throughout the years – basketball, golf, boating and fishing to name a few. He also greatly enjoyed his children’s activities - basketball, dance recitals, soccer, band concerts, cross county/track and tennis.
Matthew fulfilled a life long dream last year by adopting and bringing home the family puppy, Charlie.
