Obituary of Brian Edward Matthew

Brian Edward Matthew, 31, of Campground Rd. in Tunnelton, WV, passed away Thursday, July 15, 2021, at the UPMC Presbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh surrounded by his loving family.

Brian was born in Morgantown, on June 10, 1990, a son of Pamela Kay (Waldeck) Larew and husband Daniel of Tunnelton and Marvin LeRoy Matthew Jr. and wife, Alice of Independence.

He was a 2009 graduate of Preston High, an honorary member of the Tunnelton Fire Dept. and a member of the On Target Church, where he loved to attend on Sundays. He was a loving son, brother and uncle. He loved and brought so much joy to everyone he knew. He had the most beautiful smile, that could melt your heart and the longest eyelashes. He loved to go for long rides, sitting outside under his shade tree, watching Youtube videos, WVU football, music, hunting, big trucks, firetrucks, listening to his scanner, watching his nephews ride dirt bikes, the fireman's parade at the Buckwheat Festival, going to Tygart Lake to watch the boats, sitting by the campfire and most importantly he loved his family and friends. He will be greatly missed by so many.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by two sisters that loved him dearly, Jennifer Jennings and husband Eric of Thornton and Rachel Hoosier and husband Stephen of Tunnelton; seven nieces and nephews, Gavin, Reagan and Quinn Jennings, Maddox and Krew Lantz and Audrey and Anna Hoosier; two grandmothers, Carolyn Matthew of Reedsville and Evelyn Waldeck of Reedsville and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Marvin Matthew Sr. and Raymond Waldeck.
