Carl “Matt” Healy, age 45 of Fenwick, passed away peacefully at home under the loving care of his family and Spectrum Hospice.
Matt was an avid fisherman. He loved being on the water, especially the Great Lakes. He always had a need for speed and loved to go fast, only recently learning to slow down, just a little bit. He enjoyed tinkering and fabricating in the garage. He always seemed to have several projects going on and even left a few for his friends and family to finish for him. Matt was a jokester who loved to laugh and have a good time. His sense of humor and smile would light up any room he entered. Matt will be deeply missed by everyone who knew and loved him.
