ALSUP, MATTHEW 57, passed away on Feb. 25, 2015 after many years of battling chronic pain. Matt was born in Texas to the parents Will, an Air force officer, and Elaine, an artist. Growing up, Matt was an advent Boy Scout with many adventures. In a morning of age 16, he was hit by car while riding bike on another adventure for his Eagle badge. The accident left him with constant pain. As strong-willed and optimistic as he was, Matt did not allow the pain to deter his life. He had a successful career as a title examiner and then went on to discover his creativity in writing and self published his poetry. Matt also went back to Oklahoma University and received his degree in English Literature. Also as adventurous and inquisitive as he was, he backpack traveled on his own in Europe for 3 months. It had always been wonderful listening Matt recounting the stories from his trips and what a good story teller he was - that he could command a crowd around him with his charm and wits, and give people laughter and sighs. The adventure led him to China, where he taught English composition, Literature critique and American culture in universities. Matt enjoyed and excelled in teaching and he considered it was his best in his professional life. How he could mesmerize those young students with his impeccable sense of humor and encyclopedic knowledge. Matt enjoyed fishing at Eagle Nest lake and Gooselake, he said he loved the peacefulness and the tranquality of being by the water under the sun. He was a good family man - with his wife of almost 20 years, they own a beautiful home that they transformed to their own and raised four loveable kitties and two dogs, and together they went on more trips in all directions out of Abq. Through years of constant battling with his pain and all the problems coming with it, Matt never lost his kindness to others and sense of humor, and his last words were "It was a wild ride and it was a good run". Matthew is survived by his loving wife, Anny; nephew Mical and wife Lindsay and children, nephew Jon and wife Joycilyn; niece Elisha and husband Micah and children.
