Matthew McNicholas passed from this earth to the next on September 14th, 2020, far too soon. His friends and family are heart broken by the loss of their Son, Boyfriend, Father, Brother, Uncle, Grandson, Cousin and friend to many. Matt always marched to the beat of his own drum and never missed a time to make someone laugh. His brothers and father will cherish the summers spent at the family cottage in the North Woods and fishing on quiet mornings. Matt was a child of the 90s and loved Michael Jordan and the Bulls, beating his brothers while playing N64 and the endless summer days spent at the pool. His mother will miss the opportunity to watch Matt with his children and she so dearly would love to hold him one last time. Caring father to Emabelle and Tommy. Dear boyfriend to Stephanie Melinshyn. Beloved son to Danny and Tami (nee Mitch) McNicholas. Loving brother to Dan (Lauren) McNicholas and Mike (Sadie) McNicholas. Cherished grandson to William late Margaret) McNicholas and Carl (late Sena) Mitch. A close friend to Brenna Needles. Matt worked as a Fork Lift Operator for Fed Ex.
Emabelle adored her daddy and her family will ensure that his memory is preserved in her heart. Tommy, who is just at the beginning of his life will miss out on the things that his dad was sure to show him- fishing on the lake, Notre Dame Football and how to hit a home run – but his family will also do their best to show him the things his dad loved. Matt’s girlfriend, Stephanie will cherish the memories they had as they had just begun starting their life together. Matt will be extremely missed and his family will sorely feel the emptiness of his loss. In lieu of flowers, please consider contributions to college funds for Emabelle and Tommy.
