Matthew Sperry, Husband, Father, Bassist, dead at 34 td Mon Jan 1 11:23:27 2007
I just heard that Matthew Sperry died yesterday (June 5) in a traffic accident.

Matthew radiated light into every life he encountered.

Scot Hacker's web site has an online memorial.

Here's the announcement I received:

It is with the greatest shock and sadness that I send this message and I am sorry to notify you via email. Thursday morning June 5, while riding his bicycle to work, Matthew Sperry was hit and killed by a commercial truck on the Oakland and Emeryville border. His wife Stacia has asked me to log in and take care of his email account for the near future so I am contacting you because you were in his personal email address book.

It is expected that a service and funeral will be held either Sunday or Monday June 8th or 9th. As soon as the service is scheduled I will send out another email to this list letting you know where and when. More than likely it will be at the Chapel of the Chimes in Oakland. Stacia is surrounded by supportive friends and family. The full impact of this tragedy has yet to fully sink in.

If you are receiving this email in error please reply and I will remove you from this list. I hope to have the details of the service for you by the end of Friday. I do not have much more information than that at this point. Matt will be dearly missed by anyone who had the pleasure of his friendship or acquaintance.
