I had the pleasure of knowing Matt for 13 years. I always enjoyed talking to him and he was always so pleasant and kind. I am praying for strength for the Paxinos family during this difficult time. Matt will truly be missed. Heaven got a one.

Tracy, Nicole and Stephen - my condolences to you. I had the pleasure of working with Matt for at least 20 years while I was at UPMC. We shared many conversations of family, and he beamed with pride of all of you. He was always pleasant and willing to assist in any task - even if it were not his. He was also full of humor, such a great guy. My prayers to you, his father and other friends and family during this most difficult time.
