Obituary For Matthew S. Aiello

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Matthew “Matt” Steven Aiello, 35, of Rockland, MA. Matt passed away in the early hours of the morning on Saturday, November 27, 2021, after a 3-year battle with AML leukemia with his parents, siblings, and adoring wife by his side. Our beloved Matt was a warrior, a devoted father and husband, loving son, brother, uncle, cousin, and cherished friend to many.

Matt was born and raised in South Weymouth to Richard “Dick” and Lynne (Hurlburt) Aiello. He graduated from Weymouth High School in 2005, attended Massasoit Community College, and earned his Auto Appraisal certification from Blue Hills Regional Technical School in 2015.

Most recently, Matt worked as an appraiser at Bourne’s Auto Center. Matt was always a hard-working and dedicated employee that went above and beyond to provide for his family. He had a passion for cars and could often be found spending his free time working on his truck. He also loved taking family trips to Lake Winnipesaukee and Disney World. He was an avid Pats fan. He will be remembered most for being the life of the party, his brilliant smile, and unwavering strength.
In June 2007, Matt found the love of his life, Cheryl Sugarman, of Braintree. Soon after falling in love, he wanted nothing more than to be a dad. His dream became a reality when he was blessed with two beautiful children Abigail (12) and Nathan (11).

In addition to his parents, wife, and children, he is survived by his brothers, Christopher Aiello (Julie) of Summerville, SC, Shawn Aiello (Yolanda) of Rockland, Mass.; by his sister Amanda Proto (George) of Quincy, Mass., and his five nephews: Jonathan, Zachary, Cameron, Kayden, and Lucas.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a visitation on Monday, Dec. 6th from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Magoun Biggins Funeral Home, 135 Union St, Rockland. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 7th at St. Francis Xavier Church, 234 Pleasant St, South Weymouth.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in support of the Aiello family:

  • Matt was my nephew. He always made his presence known in a room. And he knew how to press your buttons. Pesty and hilarious at the same time. I watched with amusement as he went through various stages growing up and becoming the man he grew to be. I loved him more and more as the years went by and I was proud of him in so many ways. I will miss him but will always Remember him. My heart goes out to all his family. Much love uncle bob

  • I remember meeting this young man several times when he was a child; fished with him, his siblings, my two young sons, and his Uncle Bob on more than one occasion. and I saw him at Bob's house a time or two in those days. and I liked him. He struck me as a spark plug, funny, smart, not shy, but talkative and active. I have heard of his suffering and brave struggles through his uncle and my good buddy Bob Aiello. You can see an extremely sad tragedy coming like a train down the tracks, but you can neither stop it nor be prepared for it. My heart goes out to everyone in his family from 91 year old Gramma Ruthie, to his parents, aunts, uncles cousins and to his own wife and young children, I will never understand the reason why good people must suffer. I guess it is just the way of the world. REST IN PEACE MAT. YOUR LONG TRIAL IS OVER NOW AND TAKEN YOUR PAIN WITH IT. MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

  • This is just devastating news. I shared a floor with Matt at the hospital. We both had AML at the same time. I am in remission but I've had Matt in my prayers all along and this is just tough to hear. God bless his family and friends.
