He was born July 12, 1983, in Kirkland, Washington, to Wm. Bryan and Janet (Donaldson) Taff, who survive in Delphos. On March 13, 2013, he married Theresa (Warner-Shafer), who survives in Middle Point.

Matthew also had what he called a second family, including Robert and Julie Sloan, Greg, Andrea (Jon) Marshall and Brandy (Sam) Sears.

Matthew worked with a great crew for 12 years at Heartland Specialty Converting in Lima.

The love of the Lord that Matthew had was amazing and is still amazing, blessing other by donating organs and tissue. Matthew had a love for music and the golden ear — always loving his music.

In lieu of flowers, donations are to the family for final expenses: Theresa Taff, 502 Veach Road, Middle Point OH 45863.
