Metts was my buddy for, as long as, I can remember. I believe I first met him when he worked with my dad. We had a friendship that was there rather we saw each other or not. We always knew we were here for one another. Back when Jason was born, you could see that Jason lit up Metts heart and soul. He loved his family and his friends. Rest easy my dear friend, I'll see you on the other side. Love you big!

We are all going to miss Metts in many ways we have to know. Having known him for many years and his personality has been a great pleasure. His good nature and kind heart stood clear to everyone close to him and personally I am honored to call him my friend and co worker. With a first name like Metts it certainly suited him well because he was a one of a kind in name and in life. We will dearly miss you Metts better known around the shop as The Professor. Rest In Peace my brother.
