We are so saddened to hear of the passing of Mattie. My parents are devastated. We only heard about this yesterday. Our deepest condolences to all the family. Mattie was a good man, and a friend of my dad's for 50 years. He played at my wedding and at my parent's 25th wedding anniversary. May he rest in peace. He will no doubt be up there singing with the angels. All of our love, the Conroy/Civitano family xo

Dear Bridget, Brian, Matthew, Patrick and Deirdre, I am sorry to hear of Matthew Sr's passing. We had a great block growing up in Richmond Hill. I learned of his passing when they announced his intention this morning at St. Bennie's. My son Aaron and I prayed for him and for you!

I have known the Connolly family for many of years. I recall one memory when I was just a little boy visiting my aunt who lived right next door to Mr. Connelly and he used to always be friendly and he would always asked how I was doing. He always had a smile on his face. I am truly saddened by his passing he was just so amazing. He will be truly missed by all that knew him may he rest in peace
