Matthew D. “Matt” Stocking age 42 of Brockton died Sunday January 26, 2020. He was born in Stoughton and raised in Brockton a son of the late Eugene and Carole (LeBlanc) Stocking and had lived in Brockton for all of his life.
A member of the Class of 1995 at Southeastern Regional Vocational Tech High School Matt was a wizard with technology. He had worked as a autoCAD engineer in the Greater Boston area. In addition to computers Matt loved music, movies and his community.
Matt was a good man, a brother, a friend, and a proud father to his son, Devan, who is a hardworking young man. Being a guru with computers from a young age, having a quick-witted sense of humor and a strength that came from a lifetime of early challenges, Matt later worked his way through the hardships of cancer, addiction and diabetes, yet through it all, always had hope for a brighter day ahead. He was on the upside when he became ill and passed away from pneumonia.
In addition to his son Devan, Matt is survived by his siblings Annemarie Violandi of Hanover, MA; Kim Sikora of East Taunton, MA; Tammie Forbes of St. Augustine, FL and Rick Stocking of Conover, NC. He was the former partner for 25 years of Michelle Mousette of Brockton. Matt was an uncle of Chris, Jen, Samantha, Ryan, Michael, Nick, Justin, Mike, David, Brandon, Lexi and Kaylee Marie.
