Matthew was a loving husband and father. He enjoyed music, including playing his harmonica or attending Jazz Festivals. Matthew was one of the original founders of the water-skiing team at USL. He loved spending time outdoors in the bayou, the woods, or Elmers Island with his daughter. Mathew enjoyed building bonfires and inviting all his friends and family over to spend quality time with them around the fire. He never met a stranger, was eternally curious, and was always ready for an adventure. If you were his friend, you were his friend for life. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
The family of Matthew Sevier thanks the staff of Terrebonne General Health System for their kind and tireless care of Matthew.
Chauvin Funeral Home is honored to serve the family of Matthew Sevier.
