Matthew is survived by his daughter, Carlie Edwards (Danny); mother, Joyce T. Pope (Stan); sister, Tammy Avram (Andy); grandchild, Logan Edwards; and niece and nephew, Ally and Gabe Avram.

Matthew was a kind and gentle man. Although he was a very private man, he loved his family and he loved to fish. He would take any opportunity he could find to grab his fishing pole and head to the lake. When Matthew was not fishing, he was at the drag strip. He cherished every ticket his friend, John Force, would give him to go watch the drag race at NHRA Drag Racing Strip. Matthew’s memories will be cherished in the hearts of all those who knew and loved him.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Pleasant Grove Campground, 2220 Billy Howey Rd, Waxhaw, NC 28173.

Holland Funeral Service is serving the Stewart Family, 806 Circle Drive, Monroe, NC 28112.
