It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our brother, Matt Scheel. He was an inspiration to us all. We will miss his laughter, smile and his stories. We love you Matt, Rest In Peace brother
Matthew Scheel was a 10 year veteran of Elk Creek Fire, and more recently had volunteered with North Fork Fire Rescue. He passed away in his home in Conifer last September after suffering a cerebral aneurism and is greatly missed.
We are excited to let everyone know that a scholarship fund has been established at Red Rocks Community College in memory of our son, brother and friend, Matthew Scheel.
Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year a deserving candidate will receive $2000 to support the pursuit of a career as Firefighter/EMS service personnel. The successful candidate will demonstrate a past history and continued desire of community service and will reside in the rural or mountain communities of Colorado.
The scholarship is currently funded for a couple of years, but we would like to continue this memorial for Matt. If you would like to donate to the scholarship fund, go to this website and donate: www.rrcc.edu/foundation .
