Matt was easy to love, he would light up an entire room with his smile. You couldn’t help but love Matt for his infectious laughter, warm bear hugs and his ability to express how much he loved you.
He was a loyal New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox fan and was nicknamed Patriot by friends.
Matt did not have any children, but he was a phenomenal dog Dad. He loved his dogs, Julian and Layla with all that he was and they loved him. Matt was always known as the friend that was there to help anyone who needed a helping hand, but sadly he was unable to help himself through his toughest struggle.
In addition to his parents, Matt is survived by the love of his life, Ivette Perri of Cape Coral; his brother Chris Sewell and his wife, Rachel of Reno, Nevada; and many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by his best buddy and older brother, Sean Sewell.
