Matthias Edward Clemons was born on June 11, 2015 in Denver, CO. Matthias was an energetic, adventurous, and inquisitive child who was known to his family and friends to be constantly on the move. Matthias loved his mother, sports and exercise of all kinds (especially basketball, swimming, and skating), playing with his cousins, and watching his Kindle. Matthias excelled at reading, was awarded a coding certificate at the age of 5, and aspired to be a business owner. Matthias was constantly trying new things and challenging himself and he was rarely intimidated. Matthias was a precocious child who enjoyed spending time with people in the generations above him, especially his grandmother Beverly, who he looked forward to spending quality time with every week going to swimming lessons and spending the night. Matthias' warm and unwavering self-confidence was infectious and attracted many friends and admirers, from the trampoline park to the playground. Matthias was ushered into eternity on Tuesday, March 8th. He will be profoundly missed by his maternal grandparents Beverly and Charles, his paternal grandparents Faith and Lawrence Jr., his aunts and uncles, his cousins, and a host of other relatives and friends.
