Matthew Allen Robinette, 36, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Monday, March 13. He was born on May 4, 1986 in Anchorage, Alaska to Eric and Kristen Robinette. Matt lived in Alaska until moving to New Hampshire in the summer of 2011. Matthew was a hunter, fisherman, artist, musician and avid outdoorsman. His immense love of the outdoors and mountains, was evident in his daily life where his adventuresome outdoorsman spirit thrived. His life was filled with ongoing hunting, fishing, boating and hiking expeditions, sometimes accompanied by his father, cousins, uncles, or close friends who shared his enthusiasm and love for the great outdoors, his kindred spirits. Matt’s first fishing experience in a front pack on his father’s chest at the tender age of four days old, was the beginning of a father-son life-long bond that was admired by many. Throughout the years they shared adventures, heartfelt talks and loving moments. Matt’s friends enjoyed listening to his stories, talking about what was on their minds, or just sitting around strumming and having jam sessions on their guitars. Matt’s capacity to love his family and friends was enormous. His soulful eyes, big heart, warm smile and sensitive spirit will be missed by all who loved him.
