He is also survived by Joan’s daughter, Bonnie Backman and her significant other, Kevin Knight of New Hartford and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his brother Wayne Smoulcey.

In addition, Matt leaves many, many friends, especially acknowledging Anthony Dardano and his family and Megan Taubert.

The family would like to thank the New Hartford Police Department, Edwards Ambulance and the Willowvale Fire Company for their compassion during this difficult time.
