Matthew O'Brien


Matthew O'Brien

With sadness, our family shares the loss of Matthew Fredrick O'Brien, 37, of Riverview, NB on Saturday, November 25th, 2023, a beloved son, partner, brother and friend.

Born on December 19th, 1985, he was the son of Russell and Melanie O'Brien.

Matthew was a former student of the Moncton Christian Academy and McNaughton High School. He had a natural gift for woodworking and loved taking things apart to make them even better than before. Take, for example, his love of disc golf, because regular golf just wouldn't do. He also had a heart to help is friends and neighbours.

Matt was well-known for his straight-faced delivery of bad jokes and knee-slappers; we didn't always get them, but they've since "groan" on us. Matt, you truly were "pun-in-a-million"!

Matt leaves behind his loving companion, Heather Linkletter and their four beautiful fur-babies; his parents, Russell and Melanie O'Brien and younger brother Liam O'Brien, grandparents Art and Joyce Perry. Predeceased by grandparents Frederick and Betty O'Brien.

A celebration of life will be held at Salisbury Funeral Home, 3350 Route 106 (506-372-4800) on Wednesday, November 29th from 6pm to 8pm.

If desired, donations in memory of Matthew may be made to a cause that is near and dear to the giver's heart.
