Matthew “Matt” Melvin James
August 21, 1988 – January 24, 2017
It is with profound sadness and absolute heartbreak we share the sudden passing of our beloved son, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend Matthew. You will be forever loved and truly missed in our hearts. He is survived by his loving parents, Clifford and Karen Hauer (nee Clark), grandparents Iris and Bud Clark, Mel and Val Hauer as well as several loving aunts, uncles and cousins. He is predeceased by his brother Lucas Clark Hauer (1991). Matthew loved music, his family and friends. He loved cooking and a great party with those he loved. His huge heart and generous spirit were just a small part of his wonderful nature. We will miss his fantastic sense of humor and his marvelous laugh…forever cherishing our memories.
Play on Matt, spread the laughs and rest easy.
We will see you on the other side. Until then, “love you man!”
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1PM on Saturday, April 1, 2017 at the Maple Ridge Funeral Chapel, 11969 216 Street. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Matt’s memory to BC Children’s Hospital, which was a cause near and dear to his and our hearts.
