Matthew “Matt” was born July 16, 1993 in Austell, Georgia to Craig and Cherie Christian. Matt was a graduate of South Paulding Highschool and attended West Georgia Technical College. Matt was a carpenter by trade and a skilled cabinet maker. He liked to travel and was always active and adventurous. Riding motorcycles and ATV’s on a trail or dirt track was one of his favorite activities. He enjoyed music, going to concerts and watersports including scuba diving. He loved spending time with family and friends. He was a loving father and adored his daughters Kyleigh and Kenzie. He never met a stranger and would do for others often. If he was not working on his own projects, he could be found helping others with theirs. When things were not going as expected, he would laugh and say “That’s just part of it”. His favorite expressions were “Speed and Strength” and “No Fear”.
