Matthew David Hamilton, 23, was my lovable, huggable 6’5” nephew from Newcastle, OK. Family and friends alike will tell you that if you received a hug from Matt, it would leave you with a life-long impression of his caring nature.

 

He passed away Monday, Dec. 16, 2013, in Springer, N.M., from injuries sustained in a single motor vehicle accident.

 

He was number 22 on the Newcastle Racers Team. His sister, Sara, has since played basketball wearing his uniform number and scored 22 points in his honor. Matthew also has an older brother he looked up to, Tyler and a younger brother, Nicholas, attending college and he was helping mentor.

 

Matthew was very close to his family and friends, as evident at his services. There were close to 1,000 people present to show support for the family and to show respects for Matthew.

 

He was a kind-hearted, loving friend to all who knew him. Family was Matt’s greatest love. He also loved the outdoors and was an avid snow skier, wakeboarder and motorcycle rider. He would ride motorcycles along with his dad and brother Nicholas. He loved spending time at the lake with his family, friends and his fiancé, Lindsey.

 

His many friends and family miss him. I would like to raise funds in his memory to be shared equally with the St. Mark’s Knights of Columbus Chapter 12108, Norman, OK of which Matthew was a member and also with Newcastle High school-Athletic Department. Matthew, Tyler, Nicholas and Sara are all involved in the athletics at Newcastle, and the school district has been wonderful to my brother and sister in law. In addition, I am an educator and Matthew’s finance’, Lindsey, is also in education.

 

For donations of $25 I have beautiful statues I can mail you if you desire. For donations of $15 I have coffee mugs I can mail you. I would have to have your mailing address. The mugs and statues are while quantities last. Please indicate if you want the item or just want to make a donation with no gift.

 

Please remember to buckle up.

 

Thank you for your consideration.
