Matthew Scott Roper, 51, passed away on Saturday, January 14, 2023.
Matthew was born on August 4, 1971. He loved the Lord, his son Tanner, and his church. He was known for being very well-groomed and always put together. Not only did Matthew enjoy birds and wind chimes, he was also a big child at heart and shared a mutual love for toys with his son, so it was not uncommon to find them both playing together with airplanes and other games. Despite being a simple man, Matthew’s love for his friends and family transcendent above and beyond.
He was a member of former Aldersgate UMC and a Charter Member of Connexion United Methodist Church. Matthew loved his church family as much as they loved him. He leaves behind family, friends, and many people who love him and will miss him dearly.
He is survived by his sister, Alicia Watts; his mother, Julie Cooper; and his son Tanner Proctor.
In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory may be sent to Connexion UMC or a charity of your choice.
Family and friends are invited to honor our beloved Matthew at the service on Wednesday, January 25, 2023, at the Connexion Church on 5411 Skidaway Rd, Savannah, GA 31406, at 12:00 p.m. lead by Preacher Michael Culbreth.Print This Obituary & Condolences
