The world lost a genuine person, a young man who is loved by so many relatives and friends; this love will forever keep his memory alive. Most especially, Matthew is the beloved son of Michael and Maria (Perez) Conroy, the cherished little brother of Melissa Conroy, and grandson of his dear grandmother, Teresa Pulla.One of Matthews’s greatest joys was his best friend and companion, Zeus. Zeus is the sweetest rescue dog who loves daily walks, Milky-Bone treats, and infinite belly rubs.
