On September 11, 2021 our son, Matthew Uhry passed away after a yearlong battle to recover from Open Heart Surgery that took place at Ohio State University Hospital on October 13, 2020. He was 44 years old.
Matthew was born on July 29, 1977 to Norman M. Uhry and Cecile (Lamy) Uhry in Manchester, NH. Besides his parents Matthew is survived by his brother Jason J. Uhry and wife Amanda along with his two nephews, Colin and Owen Uhry; numerous aunts, uncles and many cousins as well as the Goodman family.
At birth Matthew was diagnosed with Tetralogy of Fallot, a rare heart disorder that required a series of heart surgeries at different intervals throughout his life. As a patient at Children’s Hospital in Boston he was introduced to Dr. Stanton Perry who initiated a new, but experimental “Stent” implant that is widely used today on a variety of heart patients who qualify. At the time, the stent had only been used in approximately 32 patients in the United States.
Despite the obstacles, Matt encountered he persisted in living a normal life playing Little League and joining the Manchester West Side Junior Soccer League. Ever the fan of the New England Patriots and the Boston Red Sox, Matt was so happy to have been able to attend live games for both teams.
Since 2014 Matt was employed at Your Hobby Place, in Martinsburg, WV. A lifelong board game competitor and “winner” of many gamer competitions, Matt was also proud of being a teacher of the game to anyone who wanted to learn. Prior to relocating to West Virginia, Matt was employed in a variety of jobs in the Manchester, NH area while attending night classes at SNHU. Matt loved horror movies especially “Halloween” and was a Stars Wars fanatic. Wherever Matt’s spirit is now, MAY THE FORCE BE WITH HIM to guide him to his Lord and reunite with his grandparents.
