Matthew Ronald Mayer


Matthew came into this world on May 25, 1974 in Salt Lake City to parents Annette Truman and Ronald Mayer. Sadly, he unexpectedly left us on January 7, 2020. He leaves behind his life's greatest joy, his daughter Annette Olivia Mayer.

Matthew lived an extraordinary life filled with live music, growing and arranging beautiful plants and flowers, fishing in the mountain lakes and streams of Utah, breeding and raising championship Japanese Akitas and unimaginably beautiful koi fish.

He found the magnificence in all things and was quick to share his beautiful vision with those who surrounded him and called him friend and brother. He brought joy and happiness to countless individuals over the years, skillfully matching them to the perfect dog, plant, or fish.

Known to all as Matt, he was deeply loved and cherished by more people, and in more ways, than can ever be expressed. He was truly larger than life and no amount of time will ever fill the void of his absence. He will forever be missed.

You were a talented person, who touched the lives of many. I remember that you were the first person my age who loved to garden, and I just thought that was unique and awesome. You will be missed.

The last time I saw Matt we were leaving a show downtown and he yelled at me from down the street, you are a beautiful person !!! He had a great soul.

Dear Matt ~ the few times I went to a show that you werent at (we shared exceptional musical taste & Love for the experience!), there was a void where you and your dogs would have been. I will now always feel that void, and miss the joy & exuberance you brought with you, especially when you released one of your inimitable and unforgettable howls! I hope you have found the Peace you struggled to find here, and I will always keep a space for you on the dance floor (and will close my eyes and feel for you there) and in my heart!!! Love you, Brother!

What an honor and pleasure it was to call Matt my friend. Like many, I shall miss that bigger than life presence at the dog shows.
Love and light, my friend- until I see you again.
