MATTHEW R. HOENIG, 81, a longtime resident of Avon Lake, Ohio, passed away February 11, 2020. Matt was born in Lockport, NY, the son of the late Helen C. (Burke) and Edward J. Hoenig.

He graduated from DeSales Catholic High School in Lockport in 1956 and went on to receive his B.S. degree from John Carroll University. He continued his education at Cleveland Marshall School of Law and Duquesne University Law School in Pittsburgh, Pa. where he resided for 17 years while working in the steel industry in various managerial positions. Matt was transferred back to the Cleveland area in 1984 and retired in 1996.
