Rochester: June 13, 2021 at age 71 Jesus welcomed Matthew into heaven.
Our family is deeply saddened at our loss, but we rejoice that he is in the arms of Jesus. He is now secure with the Lord, healthy, whole and free!
He is survived by his loving wife of 25 years, Patty; children, Brian Miller, Andrew (Alma) Miller; grandsons Daniel and Jeremiah; brothers Michael (Cecilia) Lanzoni, Anthony (Mary) Lanzoni.
Matthew was a proud veteran of the United States Air Force and served during the Vietnam conflict. He was a dedicated substance abuse counselor for over 30 years and, as such, influenced the lives of many. He was an active member of First Bible Baptist Church and began, with the help of others, the Healing Journey Ministry. He enjoyed playing golf, rooting for the Buffalo Bills but most of all attending his grandsons’ sporting events and school activities. The title he valued most was given to him by his grandsons, “Pop-pop.” He always radiated happiness with a smile and kind words. He will be greatly missed by his friends and family.
A life so beautifully lived deserves to be beautifully remembered. Please join us to celebrate Matthew’s life on Thursday, July 8th at 11:00 AM at First Bible Baptist Church, 990 Manitou Rd., Hilton, N.Y. We appreciate your love and prayers!
In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Salvation Army in his memory.
Matthew 25:23 “His lord said unto him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant… Enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”
The family greatly appreciates donations made to these charities in Matthew S. Lanzoni 's name.
