Matthew Seale

LITTLE ROCK — Henry Matthew Seale loved the outdoors, anything with an engine, and his family. He was born on January 1, 1979 in Dallas, Texas, lived in Pine Bluff and Little Rock, and died in Little Rock on Thanksgiving Day, November 28, 2013.

Matt attended Jefferson Preparatory School, Pine Bluff High School and the University of Arkansas at Monticello. During Thanksgiving 2003 he was diagnosed with primary sclerosing cholangitis and received a liver transplant in 2006. During the 10 years after his diagnosis he fought a valiant battle with the disease.

Four wheelers, jet skis, boats, wake boards, and tall trucks were all toys that Matt enjoyed and mastered.
