Matthew Paruszkiewicz, lost his battle against heart disease on March 18, 2020, but won the war. His struggle is over and he has received his victor's crown and his robe of righteousness. He was 42 years of age.

Matt was born on June 22, 1977 in Warren, Michigan, delightful son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Quinlan) Paruszkiewicz. He was a 1995 graduate of Notre Dame High School and received his Bachelor of Art and English Degree from Oakland University. He was united in marriage to his loving wife, Meghan Rose Parente, on May 22, 2009 in Warren. The couple made their home in Roseville and Fraser and were blessed with three beautiful daughters who he loved and cherished. Matt had a successful career with the Social Security Administration for 13 years. Being a problem solver and a very calm collective man, he ran an office perfectly. Matt was a kindred spirit who was generous in every way. He cared for his family deeply, taking care of his wife and daughters needs before his own. He was an exceptional son and brother and was a caregiver to his grandma Betty during her last five years on earth. Matt was quite unique; he was a musician, playing the trumpet, he loved going to Smalls, loved his techno music and his favorite band, Dead can Dance. Matt enjoyed taking his girls to see a movie the first day they came out. His favorite past time was reading books to his girls and taking them each on a special Papa date. Matt will always be known for his kindness and the love he extended to others. He loved life to the fullest and loved his girls. We are truly grateful for Matt who understood the value of friendship. He will be deeply missed and his light will continue to glow in our hearts forever.

Matt is the loving husband of Meghan; cherished Papa of Lilianah, Charlotte and Josephine; dearest son of Tom and Betsy; dear brother of Beth; dear son-in-law of Angelika Parente; brother-in-law of Matthew Parente, Alex (Sovantha) Parente; and beloved uncle of Kayia, Elysia and Penelope.

A private funeral service will be held with family, Rev. Brad Smith officiating. A Memorial Service will be held on his birthday, Monday June 22, 2020, at 11am with a gathering starting at 10am. A Celebration will continue at the Infinity Hall after the services. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions to the girl’s trust fund would be deeply appreciated. Share memories with family at

I want to take this opportunity to formally say goodbye to you.

We had some really great memories during the St. Peter's and Notre Dame years. We had some bumps in the road during 9th-11th grades, but we were able to make peace by 12th grade. During our 12th grade year, it was great for us to work together as partners in forensics performing several spliced together scenes of Mice and Men. I had marginal success in forensics prior to 12th grade, but in a partnership with you, we earned multiple top 3 finishes. Honestly, that season with you was the most fun and most memorable. I remember on a few occasions when we placed how the awards' presenter could not even come close to saying our last names correctly. On at least one of those occasions, I shouted, "Chalk one up for the Polish Posse!" I still crack up when I think about that saying. From time to time, I share that story with my high schools students when they mispronounce my last name. While we only saw each other sporadically after high school, that forensics season still lives on. I am thankful for that.

I would also add that you, Matt Bucciero, and I had some great memories together during our time at St. Peter's. We were so obnoxious together playing rubber band wars and G.I. Joe's at Matt's house. The rubber band wars must have gone on half the night at Matt's house. I also crackup when thinking about the times your dad drove the three of us various places in his Ford Tempo. I remember being hot in that car and your dad rolling down the windows speeding and calling that "air conditioning." Your dad was so darn funny driving us around.

On behalf of my wife, Mandy, as well as our daughters, Emily and Isabelle, I want to express my deepest sympathies to your wife, daughters, parents and sister.

Goodbye old friend. May you rest in peace.

Matt was my SSA team leader. He was the best. This is a huge lost for the agency and his wonderful family. God bless.

My deepest condolences to Meghan, Lilianah, Charlotte and Josephine. I first met Matt when he began working for the agency. Even back then, those who met him knew he would be successful with the agency. He was always very nice and always willing to go out of his way to help others. He was such a wonderful person. I am thankful I had the opportunity to get to know him. I will keep you all in my thoughts and pray that you will find the strength and courage to get through this difficult time.

I worked with and mentored Matt while we worked at Social Security Administration. As the new Area Director Southeast Michigan, Matt and I paid a visit to the State of Michigan Office of Disability Services. Upon meeting the director he looked at me and looked at Matt and said, "Wow, I didn't know that you had a bodyguard " because I'm a man of small stature and Matt was such a tall and imposing man. Matt and I looked at each other and started laughing because we didn't realize how we appeared to other people as a team. Matt was a great peraon to work with. He was such a good listener, very thoughtful in his comments and opinions and a great sense of humor. I loved Matt and will truly miss him.

Meghan, thank you SO MUCH for sharing Matt with us. I got to work with Matt during his time in Chicago and immediately sensed his love of alternative music and good food. It was refreshing to meet another man as well schooled in the finer points of My Little Pony, which our daughters had in common. I know he anguished every minute of being away from the four of you during his time in the Windy City. Luckily, I was able to take Matt to one of Chicago’s most notorious industrial clubs as well as converse about bands he saw at the Logan Square Ballroom. My family owes our addiction to Red Robin to your family for having introduced us to “unlimited fries” on our first trip to Dearborn. Matt was a truly a gentle giant and a good friend. I had always hoped to get another chance to meet up with him to be the two “old guys” standing in the back at an industrial music concert in Detroit or Chicago. Our thoughts are with you and your girls, as Matt always had the four of you in his heart and mind. Like the song says, “those types of cars don’t pass you every day.” We miss him terribly.
