Born on January 26, 1970, Matt affected more people in the short time that he was on earth than most men or women will in a normal life time. Matt's life was cut short by a tragic car accident in 1995. Just 25, Matt left behind a caring father, loving mother and adoring brother and sister. Matt was a graduate of Central Dauphin High School and Shippensburg University. Matt was on the track to have success within his father's business (Ritter Brothers).
Matt expressed great joy and pride when he talked about the construction and technology field. Always one to have ideas in improving the industry, Matt was to be a shining star in this field.
Of Matt it was once said "that he was the type of man that you would want your daughter to marry." Sincere, kind, humorous, loving, and one that would give you the shirt off his back, the loss of Matt was not only a loss to his family and friends, but to this world.
