Matt we love you and will miss you! We look forward to that day that we will be reunited again! Thanks for the memories!
Ryan Matthew Marchant, age 36, was born May 15, 1974 and returned home to the loving arms of his Heavenly Father on May 31, 2010 after a valiant battle with melanoma. Matt is the son of Kent and Danielle Marchant, brother to Brian, Jason, Traci Welker, Katie Martin (Alan) and father to Caden Patey. Matt graduated from Orem High School and seminary. Matt enjoyed the mountains where he found solitude and appreciated the beauty and wildlife.
He loved his horse, "Pepper", and his dog "Bodie". He loved the farm where he spent countless hours hunting, fishing and roaming the hills. Matt worked several years for Truss Works as well as several years for Skip Dunn, where he became a pro at excavation. He readied the grounds all over the valley and lovingly was called "Burley" by his coworkers. Matt was a man of his word and a loyal friend. He especially loved his family.
Our little family is currently living in California, as Kevin has been attending pharmacy school here. He just graduated in June and we are on the job hunt! It's exciting and scary all at the same time. We have three children, Kassidy is 6, Korbin is 2, and McKinley is 9 months. We're missing family and friends, but making new ones and we love it! We love life and hope to catch up with friends, old and new, through our blog :)
