Matt Terry’s laugh was contagious. There’s not a single person who heard it that didn’t want to laugh along with him. While there are many things Matt will be remembered for, the sound of his laughter will never be forgotten as it is carried in the hearts of all who loved him.

Matt Terry passed away on May 30, 2019 at the age of 25. He is survived by his parents, Mark and Tonya, and his sister, Brittney. Matt graduated from Century High School in 2012 and received a Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing and Management from Idaho State University in 2018. Matt’s life may have been cut short, but it was a full life.

Matt had a massive sweet tooth that came straight from his mother with a particular weakness for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. His sense of humor also came from his mom. While most of us were never quite sure what was so funny, it was entertaining to watch them burst into tears of laughter. Matt found amusement in frequently teasing his dad about being older than dirt. Matt was sharp, a hard worker, and eager to begin building his career within his father’s company, alongside the man he greatly admired. Matt always made sure his words mattered. Even though he only answered once for every four times his sister called, he always ended their conversations with, “I love you, sis”. If there was an animal around, you could find Matt showering it with attention. His dogs Boris Bear and Ellie Mae will miss his superior hugs and ear scratches.

Whether standing on the pitching mound, encouraging his teammates from the dugout, pushing himself on the practice field, or helping aspiring young players – Matt will be remembered by many as a true baseball player. More than that, he will also be remembered as a true friend. He always had the time to listen and an open ear to anyone in need. He was thoughtful in his advice, and while it wasn’t always easy to hear, you could always guarantee it was honest. Matt had a beautiful, kind, and loving heart. He wasn’t with us long, but he managed to make a difference in many lives. Matt was loved.

Matt achieved in 25 years what many people chase for a lifetime: a life with love, laughter, and memories.

Matt’s Life Celebration will be held on Sunday, June 30, 2019 with a program beginning at 12:00 P.M. at the Portneuf Wellness Complex Pavilion 2, 10588 Fairground Dr. Pocatello, ID. Join us for a social gathering prior starting at 11:00 A.M.

Please direct all enquiries to L.D. Wolfley at 208-241-8032.

So sorry for the loss of Matthew.
Life seems so unfair to lose someone so young. The Bible Revelation 21:4; tells us: “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” For more comforting scriptures please visit: jw.org. The Bible and Bible based information found there has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me to find out why? I hope it will do the same for you.
most sincerely

So sorry to hear about your loss. My deepest sympathy to you and your loved ones. One thing for sure is God does not cause death at this time. Ecclesiastes 9: 11. Soon Jesus is going to solve all mankind's problems by means of Gods kingdom, the one we pray for: " Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven." Matthew 6:6-10; Rev 21:3-5; Daniel 2:44. This is a government . The dead will come back to life here on Earth. Matthew 5:5; Act 24:15; Psalms 37: 11,29. This kingdom will bring us, no more sickness, pain, death, wars, food shortages, and tears. Revelations 21:3-5; Psalms 46:8,9; Psalms 72:16. Please, look up the scriptures in your Bible, you will see, that this is all true. There is much more. For more comfort please. email me at: kathy122346@gmail.com. Everything is Free as Jesus said, "You received Free Give Free." Matthew 10:8. Mainly to help comfort you. Everything is from your Bible. What I am doing to help you, I am doing it for our God and Jesus.
