Matthew Ryan Overacker, 24, a Cape Coral resident for the past four years, formerly of Cottage Grove, Ore., passed away unexpectedly Saturday, May 3, 2014, in New Orleans, La. He was born July 19, 1989, in Granda Hills, Calif.
He drew people towards him with his smile, and his unbelievable way of making you know how much he truly cared about everyone he was with. Even though there is a piece missing from all who loved him, he definitely left us with more than he took. He loved his music, and we loved him for it. He touched so many lives with his vibrant personality, and although he is gone from us he will never be forgotten. We love you "Matty O!"
He is survived by his mother, Cathy Kraude of California; father, John Overacker of Oregon; sister, Jennifer Serrago (Michael) of Cape Coral; brother, Wesley Kraude of California; and nieces, Alyssa Serrago, Halie Kraude and Katie Kraude; and nephew, Brandon Serrago, both of Cape Coral.
