He is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins. Matthew was preceded in death by his grandparents Mary Margaret and Fred McCord, and Edith and Donald Welch. Matthew loved people, never meeting a stranger. He was a diehard LSU fan even while living far away in Pennsylvania for the last 18 years.
