Matthew L.

Matthew L Warren, age 36, beloved son, brother, uncle, grandson and friend, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, October 5, 2014, in his home. Matthew was born on February 25th, 1978, in Milwaukee, WI. The son of Michael Warren and Debra Burton.

Matthew was a kind, creative and intelligent young man who we all knew and loved for following his own heart and path. He cherished his family and friends and took every opportunity he had to let us know. His passions and hobbies included hiking, camping, biking, fishing, and of course, playing the guitar. In the elements of nature and amongst the sounds of rock N roll is where he spent most of his time, and where he can continue to live on in all of us. Life will never be the same without our dearest Matthew and we will miss him so.

In addition to his parents he is survived by; his sister Michelle (Jordan), his brother Luke, his sister Colleen, his brother Jack and his sister Anna; his nieces Ella and Chrystina, his grandparents; Francis and Bonnie Burton; numerous Aunts and Uncles, cousins, dear friends and many others. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Edward and Lillian Warren.

Matthew’s poem
From the heart of a dear friend.

“I like the notion of Atomic everlasting afterlife.
That if an atom goes on there is enough energy for our Matthew to be everywhere his loved ones want, all at the same time forever.
Whether it be in Heaven or at play with the stars
He is the warmth of the sun on your face, the gentle wind that blows your hair
There are no longer any limitations.
He is together with the ancestors.
He is everywhere.”

Memorial Visitation will be held on Saturday, from 9-11 AM, at Congregation of the Great Spirit (1000 W. Lapham). Memorial Service will follow at 11 AM.

Our family knew Matthew since we lived in South Milwaukee, 7 or so years at least. Matt was definately a free spirit, and would always play guitar with Mike or Ray. “DUDE” will be missed. our thoughts & prayers are with him & his family.
