Matthew G. Johnston

LOCKPORT — Matthew G. Johnston has peacefully passed away after a 74-day battle with metastatic melanoma on Saturday, March 1, 2014 in Niagara Hospice House, surrounded by many loving family members. Matt, a boisterous fun-loving guy with a devilish sense of humor, was born in Niagara Falls, December 17, 1959 to Harold D. and Evelyn Smith (Krieger) Johnston.

He was a lifelong resident of "Fun City" Appleton until he moved to Newfane to be closer to Mom, and was the primary caregiver and a great comfort to our Mom in her final days.

Matt enjoyed various activities: Sabres and Bills games, fishing, family poker games, bowling, darts, a good book, scary movies and "Three Stooges marathons". He also attended Jamboree in the Hills concerts with his buds.

He worked at Mayer Brothers, Oldham Saw until closing, then followed the company south to help set-up and train employees and, most recently, Sun Orchards.

Matt is survived by brothers, Harold Johnston, Jr., Marc Krieger and sisters, Valorie (Henry) Krieger Landon and Sheryll (Gary) Krieger Brewer. He is also survived by many loving family members - nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, tons of cousins, good friends and his kitty, Peanut.

Another seat has been filled at the Poker game. Its dealers choice, Matt - you're the new player at the table.

A celebration of Matthew's life will be held Saturday, March 15, 2014, from 4-6 PM at the        Tuscarora Indian Mission Church, 5035 Walmore Road, Sanborn, NY. Memorials can be made in Matt's name to Niagara Hospice, 4675 Sunset Drive, Lockport, NY 14094.
