Matthew left us too early when he passed away on January 14, 2018, following a terrible car accident. Matthew was a poet, a national merit scholar, a search and rescue volunteer, and a certified first-responder. Matthew was not only a wonderful son, but a loving brother to two younger siblings. He was a caretaker for Alzheimer patients, a lover of both literature and medicine, a friend to all animals, and a hiking buddy. He strove to not only better himself, but better the world in the process.
Matthew was an organ donor and, through his gifts, three lives were saved. His compassionate spirit is smiling down at us and watching over us from heaven.
Matthew is survived by his parents, Jerry and Patti Sachse, his siblings, Kurt and Kristin Sachse, his grandmother Jeanne Hillyer (Gigi), his grandparents Jane and Vern Pall (Grandma and Grandpa Vern), and his loving German Shepherd and hiking buddy, Heidi.
