Matthew Jones Obituary

Matthew John Dylan Jones (Spiider) was born June 11, 1993, and passed away at the age of 30 years on December 28, 2023. 

Matthew is survived by his mother, Jennifer Jones, his father Christopher Watson, two brothers, Andrew, and Nathan Watson, and his grandmother, Donelda Snyder. He was predeceased by his grandfather John Snyder and his paternal grandparents, Lydia and Al Watson.

Matthew began his life in Strathmore Alberta, and moved to Barrhead when he was two and a half years old. The family moved to Hinton when he was about 9 years old. He graduated from Gerard Redmond High School in 2011. Matt came very close to completing the IT Program at SAIT when the brain disorder, schizophrenia, changed his life forever. Matthew’s inability to see around corners, to anticipate consequences, and to make wise decisions about his health ultimately led to his untimely demise.
