Matthew McInnis, age 43, passed away unexpectedly Thursday, September 12, 2019. A native of New York, New York, Matthew was born on September 30, 1975 to Tom and Pauline McInnis. Matthew was a man of many talents who used his skills to not only provide for his family but to also improve the lives of many who were down on their luck and in need of help. He had a special place in his heart for those less fortunate than he and his family. Matthew acted on his feelings for others in so many ways that will never even be known but that were done from a deep love for his fellow man. He was a good mate, father, son, brother and friend to many and he will be dearly missed by all who were fortunate enough to have known this man.
He leaves behind, in addition to his parents, the love of his life, Erin Ackerman; their three children, Connal, Maclan and Oonagh McInnis; his step-mother, Kathleen McInnis; two brothers, David and Liam McInnis; and his sister, Kaitlyn McInnis-Newman.
The family has planned a visitation and time of shared remembrances for Friday, September 20, 2019 from 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. at Westmoreland Funeral Home in Marion.
