It is with broken hearts that we, the family, announce the sudden passing of our son, Matthew on Sunday, July 25, 2021 at home.
Matthew was the son of Darren Poirier and Stacy Walsh, Portage.
Matthew was a friend to everyone, if you needed help with something or a drive somewhere, he was always up to the task. Matthew would put his hand to work at anything, but especially enjoyed working on his stock car. It was his passion to get out on the track. Matthew recently began a trucking course at Breton Commercial that he absolutely loved. He couldn’t wait to hit the highway.
Besides his parents, Matthew is survived by his grandfather, lifelong buddy and golf partner, Greg; sisters, Jessica (Steven LeCoure) and Chelsey; as well as many uncles, aunts, and cousins, especially his aunt, Cindy and uncle, John Bond, and his cousin and best pal, John. Lastly but certainly not least, Matthew is survived by his two children, Alex in Manitoba and his princess and love of his life, Savannah in Sydney.
Matthew was predeceased by his grandparents, Linda Walsh, Jim and Barbara Poirier.
There will be no visitation or service for the late Matthew Walsh.
Donations in memory of Matthew may be made to a charity of one’s choice.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.
