Matthew F. Rigney



Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute

Matthew Francis Rigney Greece: Tuesday, March 5, 2019 at age 50. Predeceased by his parents, Leo and Irene Rigney. Survived by his sister, Monica Rigney (Timothy Dorr); aunt, Mary Burke; cousins, David (Susan) Burke, Darren (Christy) Burke; other beloved family members. The family wishes to express its deep gratitude to the members of the Unity Hospital ICU, Pulmonary and Palliative Care Units for the exceptional care given to Matt. Over twenty-three years ago Matt entered the Lifetime Assistance residence and day habilitation programs. Through the years he received excellent care and development from a devoted team that enabled him to be his very best. He was equally passionate about his work and the simple joys of sharing cheeseburgers and French fries with his friends. No prior calling. His Celebration of Life will be announced in the spring. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Lifetime Assistance Foundation in his memory. For more information or to sign Matthew’s online guestbook, please visit

    Matt, of all the superheroes you followed over years there’s not one of them who could hold a candle to you. Thank you for all you taught me and for being a terrific brother. Rest gently with Mom and Dad by your side.

    I remember what a sweet heart Matthew was. My parents lived next to your parents on Jamestown. Thoughts and prayers to you.
