Matt was a great guy! I do regret not having him over more often to play cribbage. Covid 19 was the culprit, deterring my interaction with many people. I always envied Matt, he had the ability to great you with a smile and happiness no matter what issues he was dealing with. He was extremely out going, enabling him to go out of his way to strike up a conversation with people he knew and strangers as well, always greeting people with a smile. He will definitely be missed!

I am so sorry to hear of Mat's passing. He was always such a happy and energetic presence at Willis Re, and I enjoyed the opportunity to work with him in Edina. I will miss his smiling face.

My condolences to your family. Though I didn't know him personally, I may have met him through the Knights of Columbus and I know that Knights are special men. I am also a 3rd cousin on the Bujalski side and miss the connections that could have been made with extended family. May God's peace be with you as you walk your path of grief.
