Matthew Boyles Obituary

     Matthew Wilson Boyles, 15, of Ridgeland, SC passed away on December 23, 2023. He was born on April 6, 2008, in Savannah, GA.

     From the time Matthew was born, he was all boy. He brought an unspeakable joy to all his family. From his toddler years, he was full throttle. He loved the outdoors, honeybees, snakes, tractors and heavy equipment. He loved to ride and drive things including a BobCat with his grandfather Pee Wee whom he called "Dad E". He was very smart and could put things together and if you gave him a key to play with, he would find out where that key was supposed to go including lawn mowers, boats, cars, etc.

     After his heart attack and stroke on June 2, 2010, his brain injury left him to be a non-verbal quadriplegic with cerebral palsy. Despite the numerous medical challenges that he had from 2010 to 2023, Matthew had a smile that was so contagious it brought joy to so many people. He was a very happy boy. He was dearly loved and will be dearly missed by all his family, his medical care team and anyone who knew Matthew. The family finds peace knowing that Matthew is now walking and talking in heaven.

     Left to cherish his memory are his mother, Mallory Boyles; his grandparents, Pee Wee and Sheri Boyles; his “Nannie” and “Grandaddy,” Becky and Allen Perry; his great grandmother, “Ma Ma,” Patricia Boyles; one brother, Luke Arnold; two sisters, Emma Recchia, Alyssa Smart, and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family. He was preceded in death by one brother, Leland Boyles.

     A visitation will be held from 11:00 am - 12:30 pm on Thursday, December 28, 2023, at Vaigneur Funeral Home, 6802 Tillman Road, in Ridgeland, SC. A graveside service will be held at 1:00 pm at Ridgeland Cemetery, Ingram Street, in Ridgeland, SC.
