Matt was a loving father, husband, son, brother, uncle, and friend to everyone. He was a beloved teacher who touched the lives of many students in the Akron school district. He was an avid sports fan whose passion for Cleveland teams was the essence of who he was. His knowledge of sports and stats was unparalleled. His intellect, wit, and incomparable sense of humor made him the life of the party everywhere he went. Matt's perfect day included being surrounded by his family and friends with great music playing, debating historical facts and other trivia on a beautiful day tossing a football on the beach at Lake Erie. The devastating loss of Matthew Frlich will be felt by all who were, in one way or another, impacted by his infectious spirit and love for life.
