From his Family and Friends:

Matthew Charles Van Eaton, 30, went to heaven early Sunday morning August 10, 2014. Matthew had an intense appreciation and passion for living life to the fullest. Never one to shy away from a new challenge or adventure, he was a true outdoorsman, craftsman, and best friend to many.

He was never without the love of his life, Jane Soneson, by his side and his Australian Shepherd, Rowen. Matt never met a stranger and his generosity was endless.  He was a graduate of Western State University in Gunnison, CO and an accomplished Landman at Merit Energy in Dallas, TX.   He left behind countless friends and colleagues whose lives he affected in ways that will never be forgotten.

To honor Matt’s love of life, donations may be made to the Matthew Van Eaton Memorial Fund at the Community Foundation of the Gunnison Valley by clicking the donation button below or mailed to Box 7057, Gunnison, CO  81230.

2016 UPDATE: The first gift was made out of the Matthew Van Eaton Fund in 2016. It went toward the Annual Community Grant Cycle, and more specifically, toward the Crested Butte Land Trust’s Peanut Lake/Slate River restoration/monitoring efforts.
