In loving memory of

Matthew W. Wilson
August 23, 1981 - December 30, 2021

Matthew Wayne Wilson, 40, passed away on Thursday, December 30, 2021, in Anderson. Matthew was born in Indianapolis, on August 23, 1981, to Debra (Dyson) Blair. He graduated from Delta High School in 2000. Matthew worked at IMI Specialties Company, in Indianapolis, as a heavy equipment operator. He was in the International Union of Operating Engineering Local #103 Heavy Equipment. Matthew was in the Navy from 2001-2011.

Matthew was full of life. His smile was contagious and he lit up the room when he was around. Matthew would say that his purpose here was to keep everyone smiling and happy, and he did just that. There was never a dull moment when around him. He was blunt, to the point, and was always inappropriate. Matthew was always there, or just a phone call away for his family and friends. He was a kind and caring soul, who never met a stranger. It did not matter where the family was at, they would run into someone that he knew. Matthew was a loving father, hard worker, and good friend. He had a passion for working on and riding Harley's. Matthew will be missed by us all.

Matthew is survived by his mother, Debra (Stephen Wilhite) Blair, Fowlerton; step-father, Roger (Yvette Angelo) Carrigg, FL; daughter, Kameran Wilson, Muncie; son, Kaiden Wilson, South Korea; sisters, Angie Holmes, Cape Coral, FL; and Melody Carrigg, Fairmount; step-brother, Mitch Carrigg, Anderson; and ex-wife, Amanda Guerrin, Marion.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Patsy and Maurice Dyson.

"I don't know where to begin. Cheryl and Matt were our neighbors and probably the best neighbors I've had in my 50 years of life. Matt would always go out of his way to help my family if he saw we needed it. I never had a conversation with Matt where he didn't leave me in stitches with laughter. Matt, it's been my pleasure to have the opportunity to meet you in life. May you rest in peace friend. "

"Thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time. I had the privilege to work with Matt at Schneider. I always knew if he called, I was going to smile before the call ended. May he rest in peace. "
