Matthew Romero of Douglas Flat

     Matthew Raymond Romero passed away peacefully on July 27, 2020 in his childhood home in Douglas Flat.

   Matt is preceded in death by his parents Raul and Miriam Romero.

   Born on May 20, 1969, he graduated from Bret Harte High School and was a lifelong resident of Calaveras County.

   At the time of his passing he was employed by Sam Berri Towing and enjoyed going to work and helping people.

   For many years he was active in the rodeo and was named Mr. GSGRA in 2000. He also had many hobbies in his spare time, such as fixing up his home, spending time with his pets and was known for the best holiday decorations in town.

   Volunteering was a big part of Matt's life. He will be remembered for his time as a volunteer firefighter, as well as his involvement with the Forest Service and EMT community.

   Giving by nature, he was always there to help his friends and neighbors. He will be remembered for his smile, his kind nature and how he embraced life.  Matt will be missed by all who knew him.

   Angels Memorial Chapel is handling arrangements.
