Obituary

The world became brighter on May 10, 1965, the day Matthew Musser was born to parents Doris and Gerald Musser. He was one of 7 children and countless foster children. Matthew, 59 of Voluntown passed away unexpectedly at his home on May 12, 2024. He leaves behind a legacy of passion, creativity, and love that touched the lives of many.

Matthew was a man of many interests, but above all, he cherished the simple joys of life. He found solace in the great outdoors, often seen hiking through picturesque trails searching for bigfoot, or casting his line into the tranquil waters of Beach Pond. Each year he looked forward to the Beach Pond fishing contest to see who would catch the biggest fish that day. The ocean held a special place in his heart, where he would spend countless hours admiring its vastness and serenity while riding waves, and soaking in the sun.

His devotion to family was unwavering. Matthew cherished every moment spent with his loved ones, whether a cozy evening at home or an adventurous outing.

He was so proud of his daughter Katy, husband Michael, and his two amazing grandchildren Connor and Jacob, and cherished all his visits with them. 

Music was Matthew's soulful companion. He found solace and expression in crafting his own melodies, sharing his heart through each chord and lyric. His music will continue to resonate in the hearts of those who knew him.  His ability to improvise a song on the spot was so good he left you thinking it was an actual song. 

As a sports enthusiast, Matthew cheered passionately for his beloved Detroit Tigers and New Orleans Saints. He also loved playing wiffleball with brother Scott and nephews Nathan and Daniel where he was known for his signature screwball. You could also catch him throwing elbows on the basketball court and playing tough, physical defense.

Matthew was also a connoisseur of art and antiques. His keen eye and appreciation for beauty led him to collect treasures that spoke to his soul, each piece holding a story and a memory.
