With great sadness,
the family of Matthew Richard Allan Heim announce his sudden passing,
on Monday, May 1, 2023 in Calgary, Alberta at the age of
Matthew will be
forever remembered by his father, Allan Heim (Jackie); mother, Tammy
Janes (Chris); brother and sisters, Daniel Heim (Amelia), Nicole
Jollimore (Ben), Erika Heim; as well as several aunts, uncles, and
cousins. He will be deeply missed by his children, Noah Dent-Myers,
Elijah Heim, and Marcy Young; step-children, Jake, Jasmine, Jordan,
and Jonah Budgell.
Matthew was born in
Oshawa, Ontario. He was a "professional" MMA fighter,
Monster energy connoisseur, and a self-proclaimed master of his craft.
Matthew was known for his unorthodox fighting style, which consisted
mostly of flailing his arms wildly and hoping for the best. But
despite his unpolished technique, he always had a heart of a champion
and the ego of a true fighter. Out of the ring, he enjoyed spending
time with his family and friends. He also loved to brag about his
victories in the ring and explain how he would have won, if it wasn't
for that one sucker punch.
Matthew was always
seeking new adventures and experiences and had a contagious energy and
zest for life that touched the hearts of everyone he met.
Matthew’s passing leaves a deep void in the lives of all who
knew him. His warmth, humor, and kindness will be missed by everyone
who had the privilege of knowing him.
Arrangements have been
entrusted to Mattatall - Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro,
where the family will receive friends from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m., Friday,
May 12, 2023, and a celebration of Matthew’s life at 7:30
p.m., Saturday, May 13, 2023, where family and friends can gather to
remember the joy and love that he brought to the world. Webcasting
will be available starting at 7:25 p.m. and will remain on the website
for viewing. A private family burial will take place at a later date.
If so desired, donations in memory of Matthew to Flar Equine
