Obituary for Dillon Matthews

Dillon  Matthews
Dillon Brett Matthews, 31, passed away June 1, 2018 in Pueblo West, Colorado.
He was born into his loving family on July 15, 1986 in Canon City, Colorado. Dillon grew up in Canon City and graduated from Canon City High School in 2004. While in high school, Dillon competed on the golf team, and came through with the final score to get his team to the championship match. Dillon was generous and exceptional in many ways: He was a big man with an even bigger heart and infectious smile. He never met a stranger and was an entrepreneur in the best sense-by being able to see a need and help others. He followed his passion of bringing joy to peoples lives and created Colorado Mountain Anglers, a successful business-doing for a living what he loved, fishing and putting people on fish. He always said he loved going to “my office” guiding on Pueblo reservoir, Spinney, Eleven Mile, Blue Mesa, Antero, and Tarryall.
Dillon’s love for the water passed on to his daughter, Ariya. The two loved being on the water together and were both “water-bugs”. Because Dillon was a fishing guide, this allowed him to spend countless hours with his baby. Dillon and Ariya did everything together and had an amazing bond. In Dillon’s words, having a baby girl “is like catching a 30 inch trout, but better.”
As a little boy, Dillon quickly learned how to fly fish from his grandpa Bud, and his heart was always on a lake, especially with his baby daughter. He was a true outdoorsman and a free spirit, and never forgot to say “I Love You” to his family.
Dillon is survived by his significant other, Charlie Grandt of Pueblo West; his daughter, Ariya; his parents, Mark Matthews of Mesa, Arizona and Tracy (Tony) Sullivan of Canon City; sister, Aleis (Robby) Richardson of Gunnison; brother, Taylor Matthews of Aurora; step-brother, Cole Sullivan of Canon City; maternal grandparents, Bud and Carolyn McIntosh of Pueblo West; paternal grandparent, Andi Townsend of Texarkana; and a niece, Brooklyn Richardson. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Leroy Matthews; great-grandparents, Forrest and June McIntosh, Alice Kendall and Harvey Leeper.
Funeral service, 11:00 a.m., Wednesday June 6, 2018, Evangelical Free Church, 3000 E. Main Street, Canon City with reception to follow.
