After working a number of jobs, he landed at Dare Foods Ltd. in Kitchener and remained there till his retirement in 1996. Matthew will be remembered as a kind hearted, gentle, angelic soul. He loved to sing and dance and always enjoyed a lively get-together. He always had a compliment for anyone he met. He will also be remembered for his relentless belief in the Toronto Maple Leafs.
