Matthew Seth-Michael Foreman, age 41, passed away on Friday, March 8.
Born in Toledo on December 19, 1977 to Samuel and Kathie (Wells) Foreman, he was employed at Generations Financial as a financial advisor. He faithfully attended Calvary Church in Maumee. Matt will be remembered for his kindness, silly humor, contagious dimple-accented smile, his love for 116 Clique (Christian Rap), strong work ethic, ability to make people laugh and his authenticity. In a world where so many are trying to be something they aren’t, he owned who he was, including his faith in Jesus. He was a living example of Jesus by befriending anyone and everyone. He loved evangelism, taking every opportunity to boldly share Christ with others. Matt served on several mission trips. He was even sharing his musings of heaven up until he found his place there.
He leaves behind his loving wife, Elena; daughters, Hannah (15), Leah (13) and Sienna (9); loving parents, Sam and Kathie Foreman, of Maumee; sisters, Dawn Atto (Peter) and Kristi Leigh (Nick); and nieces and nephews, Ivie, Beckam, Liam, Natalia and Luke; the mother of his two oldest children, Cheri Higgins; and grandparents, Mary (Dale) Twining and Richard (Sally) Wells.
A memorial service took place on March 13 at Calvary Church in Maumee.
