Matthew Pesenti passed away on April 12, 2012 in Eureka, Calif. Matt was born toRaymond Jr. and Pamela Pesenti in October 1971 in San Luis Obispo. He is survived by his parents; brother Greg; and his two children; his sister Holly (Chris) and their three children; his grandparents Ray Sr. and Carmela; godparents, Jerry Reynolds and Lori Hicks; step-daughter, Kristy; and numerous other family members.
Matt grew up in Paso Robles and attended PRHS. Matt loved to work with his hands – rebuilding engines, cars, tractors and old gas engines with his dad. He could do anything and took pride in the many projects that he completed. He was best known for his "Templeton Feed and Grain" hats that he wore daily, he would buy cases of them at a time so if there was a special occasion, he would have a new one ready.
He was an amazing person; brilliant, kind, loving, funny, hardworking and loyal. You always knew where you stood with Matt, and when in doubt he was not afraid to speak the truth even if others had a different view. If he liked you, he showed it by heckling you and poking fun. He loved a good story and had a sweet grin on his face. According to his niece, he was the best pie maker in the world. He built hot fudge sundaes that were a foot high for his nephew at bedtime! He loved to spend time with elderly folks, listening to their stories and absorbing their attention. He threw the best Fourth of July parties ever. He used to throw cartons of cigarettes in his mom's grocery cart even though she did not smoke just to see her reaction. He loved the movies that nobody else probably ever watched and he would memorize them! He would help anybody that needed it and always go the extra mile. There was nothing that he could not do, everybody that knew him knew that.
He was loved by so many, especially his parents that were his constant supporters. He will be missed so deeply and forever. The world without Matthew in it will never be the same – we have lost something precious. Matthew was laid to rest on Saturday, April 21 at 11 a.m. at the Paso Robles District Cemetery.
