Bee, Matthew John, age 21, passed away Saturday, September 16, 2017. Although Matthew’s life was indeed too short, he lived it to the fullest and gave this world incredible joy. Matthew had the ability to light up a room with his presence, his beautiful heart and infectious smile made him unforgettable.

He was truly special; he made our hearts soar as a gifted athlete, a record breaking football star, amazing surfer, outrageous skateboarder and talented snowboarder; there was no sport he didn’t excel in. He had a great love of music and was a self proclaimed rock star. His dashing good looks and witty sense of humor made him irresistibly charming. Matthew’s greatest accomplishment was the impact he made on others, with his kind heart, compassionate ways and wisdom beyond his years. He left an incredible mark in our hearts and was loved and adored by his family, friends and the many lives he touched. Matthew would want you to celebrate his life by living yours and being happy. He will be watching over us all as he always has done.

Matthew is survived by his loving family, parents; Brian and Lisa (Palladino), sister; Briana, brother; John, grandparents; John and Margaret Bee, Georgeann Palladino, Anthony Palladino (Lisa), uncles and aunts; John and Teresa Palladino, Gregg Palladino, Mark Bee, Luke and Gwen Bee, cousins; John and Michael Palladino & Sean and Kevin Bee, his rescue dog Chapo and a host of loving friends. Matthew is predeceased by his aunt; Anntonia Palladino. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at 11AM at Holy Trinity Parish: Blessed Sacrament Church, Jerome and Ventnor Ave in Margate with viewing beginning at 9AM. In lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to Hansen Foundation, 600 S. Odessa Ave Galloway NJ 08205 or donate online at www.hansenfoundationnj.org “In Memory of Matthew Bee”.
