Obituary of Matthew D. Schaeffer

Matthew David Schaeffer, 27, passed away on July 27, 2021, at his home in Pottstown, PA. Born in Pottstown, PA, on November 12, 1993, Matthew was the son of Mark Schaeffer and Lisa Luscan.

Matt graduated from Pottsgrove High School in 2012 and then worked for Costco in Pottstown. In his spare time, Matt enjoyed day trading and investing in cryptocurrency. He had a passion for vehicles, but especially had fun tinkering with his Saturn Sky and Honda Nighthawk motorcycle. Matt was very artistic and loved to draw, specifically anime characters. One of Matt’s greatest accomplishments was creating his own VR video game, Tiny Mortals. Matt had a great personality and always made people laugh with his silly and goofy humor. He was the best big brother for which anyone could have ever asked.
