Matthew Ryan Perry

January 4, 1987 ~ November 1, 2020

At the age of 33, Matthew Ryan Perry unexpectedly passed away on November 1, 2020 in his home due to ongoing medical issues. He was born in Utah on January 4, 1987 to Brett Perry and Joyce Grimm. He married his beloved wife, Christy Ann Perry, on August 14, 2010.

Matt was passionate about life, known by all for his goofy grin and fierce loyalty. Matt had an open and approachable soul, making new friends everywhere he went. He had a huge heart which he proudly wore on his sleeve, with a softness and compassion for those less fortunate in life; he would do anything to help another in need.

Matt was an incredibly hard worker and took a lot of pride in the quality of his work. In his free time, he loved the outdoors: camping, fishing, hiking, badminton, and most importantly, disc golfing. Other passions included techno music, Anime, and watching YouTube. Most of all, Matt enjoyed being a homebody and spending quality time with his family and pets.

Matthew was preceded in death by his father Brett Perry and many dear friends and family. He is survived by his wife, Christy, and a large support group of friends and family who love him very much and miss him dearly.

For those who wish to pay their respects, an open house will be held to honor Matt’s life on November 13 from 6-8pm at Larkin Mortuary on 3688 West 12600 South Riverton, UT 84065.


My family and all the garage door families who Matt touched will surely miss him. We were all shocked to hear the good lord took him home. I personally really respected and appreciated Matt for who he was. I didn't know him really well but was grateful to have met him and enjoyed working around him. Our hearts go out to all those grieving over the loss of Matt. May you rest in peace Matt.

My Heart is Brojen. Christy There are no words to say how I wish this wasn't real. Matt loved you so much. He always talked to the highest degree of love and respect for you. He was always so excited and proud when he brought his wife's cookies into work. Always so proud of you. Matt was a light in this world. He was a best friend and he truly cared for others. Im so blessed I got to work with him and he got me through the day. My Playlist was always going so it was funny when I would hear him and Brian humming. Matt would kbear and rock out making springs. I love you Matty. Noone could ever take your place. You had a heart of gold and a love for Christy that made me love you more. My friend thank you for singing with me on Friday. If you get to have a last conversation that was perfect. Love your Jen Jen. Always be my Matty .. Christy I love you...

Christy we truly are sadden by this news and my heart breaks for you. Jaren and I have enjoyed having you and Matt as our neighbors that last 7 years and will miss having Matt around, sharing yard supplies, having conversations when we could or when we would hear him out mowing the lawn that meant we had to go out and mow ours so our grass would be the same lol we will miss seeing you both outside playing badminton or just seeing how happy you two were together. You two made such a great team. I always knew when Matt was leaving for work or when he would get home because he always had his techno music up so loud in his car I would tell my kids “sounds like Matt’s home” lol He truly was just a fun genuine person who will be missed. We are sending our thoughts and prayers for you Christy. We are here for you if you need anything.

I am so sad and I am going to miss him so much. You know Christy that I love you and I’m truly sorry you have to endure this pain and heartache. Please know you are not alone. I’m here for you no matter what you need. Day or night. I’m here. I loved you both more than you could ever know!
