Matthew Pomainville September 5, 1995 to November 6, 2021
Family and friends are so sad to announce that Matthew has lost his battle against addiction. Many rehab centers alone with all the Love and help from family and friends often times just aren’t enough. Matthew was known for his kind heart and silly attitude. A son, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend. He was a jokester who enjoyed softball, fishing, four wheeling, and hunting. Whether the driver or passenger, Matt also loved driving fast. When entering several rehabilitation facilities he was always lending a hand and tried to help anyone in the program even though he was struggling himself. He was becoming the beam of light and inspiration for many trying to stay clean, He became a lost soul after the unexpected passing of his mother Diane in 2012. Matt never truly mourned his Mom, always searching for a way to relieve his pain. He always put on a brave face although he was crushed and falling apart deep down. Stuck in a vicious downward spiral, we all witnesses and couldn’t change. Matthew is no longer fighting his demons or in pain. He will be dearly missed by many.
