Obituary for Matthew Nelson Blount

February 27, 1977 - April 21, 2020
Westlake, Ohio | Age 43

Loving Son


Matthew Nelson Blount was born February 27, 1977 and went home to be with his Heavenly Father April 21, 2020 at the age of 43.

Matthew was born in Lexington, KY to Nelson and Camille Blount. He attended Keswick Christian School and graduated from Grace Christian School in St. Petersburg FL. Matthew was a musician and an athlete, playing baseball, basketball, soccer and cross country. He attended Greenville University (IL) near St. Louis; was a member of the soccer team and AGORA (Mens service organization).

Matthew asked Jesus into his heart as a toddler (on his own) and spent the rest of his life following Jesus and seeking to know Him better. He loved animals, hiking, and reading. He enjoyed working in Recreation and water sports. Matthew loved people and is known for his kindness, gentleness and concern for others; helping and serving others. He is also known for his deep love of God through Jesus Christ. His only desire was to point people to God as he prayed constantly for others to fully surrender to Jesus Christ. Matthew came to a time when his only want was to be with the Father. 1 John 2:16 says "For all that is in the world - the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life - is not of the Father, but of the world." Knowing that religion is man's effort to get to God, he celebrated Jesus, which is God's effort to get to man, and we know that even in death Matthew is pointing people to God.

Matthew is survived by his parents, Nelson and Camille, aunts, uncles and cousins. Memorial contributions may be made to CrossPointe Community, 1800 Columbia Road, Westlake OH 44145. A Memorial Celebration of Life will be at CrossPointe Community to be announced on our website. 4403339774
