Matthew Blake Salyer was taken suddenly from us on March 5th due to a tragic accident. He was born on July 7, 1987 in Raleigh. In 2006, he gave his heart to the Lord during his baptism in Kingsport, TN. He attended Wake Forest-Rolesville High School. He soon found his passion in life which was landscaping. Matt was a wonderful son, who always had a smile on his face, or some cute attitude look! He had a huge heart! He was always giving to others, his love touched the lives of many. Matt lived his life to the fullest and enjoyed everyday spent with family and friends. You could always find him outside enjoying the great outdoors which included the water, woods and the mud! The Lord must have a greater plan to take away our baby boy so soon. We know he is looking down on all of us smiling, waiting until the day we all meet again! Matt will be sadly missed but you can always cherish the memories we made and shared. We Love You Matthew!
