During his service in the USAF, he met his wife Gisela Mersdorf in Germany.  They returned to the states and tied the knot at South Shore Trinity Lutheran Church in White Bear Lake, Minnesota and were married for 58 years. They spent the first years of their marriage back in Europe and upon returning to the states, he obtained an electrical engineering degree from the University of Minnesota and accepted a job offer in San Carlos, California.  In 1980, Matt and a partner founded a telecommunications engineering firm.  And after selling the company in 2002, he retired to Ferndale, Washington.
