Matt is survived by his mother, Joanne Cook; sisters Susan Redman and Karen Robinson; and his brothers Tim, Ted, and Andy Cook.

As a young man, he worked with his father raising cattle, and later for Shanks Seeds in Wheatley; he remembered his time there fondly. Matt was also an avid Maple Leafs fan, despite them never hoisting the Stanley Cup during his lifetime. He was funny, intelligent, and a good man to his family. The family is grateful for the many friends who checked in on Matt during his illness, and to the Erie Shores Campus of the Hospice of Windsor & Essex County, in Leamington, Ontario, for their kindness and attentive care during Matt's brief stay with them. A Memorial Service will be held at a later date. Arrangement entrusted to DENNING’S OF WHEATLEY (519-825-7741). Online condolences may be left at www.wheatleyfuneralhome.ca.
