Fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church, Matt Hopfinger passed away on March 22, 2022, at the age of 65.
He worked as an electrician and was a member of IBEW Local #1. Matt was an avid reader and enjoyed playing sports and games. Fond memories of Matt organizing our cousins’ softball team that played in Forest Park in the 1980s, as well as his helping family and friends with various projects over the years, lending his strength and expertise to those of us less skilled.

He is survived by his brother Mark Hopfinger, sister Teri Hopfinger Gaffney, nephew Kyle Gaffney, nieces Bridget Gaffney Linders (Will), Katherine Hopfinger Vahdani (Chris), and Melissa Hopfinger (Sarah Czirr).
