Matthew Alexander Ruvalcaba, beloved son, brother, and grandson, entered the kingdom of heaven on February 27, 2023. Matthew was well-known for his sense of humor, love for animals, and deeply empathetic nature. He was also very musically gifted and aspired to impact others through his love of music. His disarming vulnerability left all he encountered feel safe, loved, and cared for. Matthew is preceded in death by his paternal grandfather Jose Ruvalcaba, maternal grandmother Bertha Valdez, and aunt Lourdes Espinoza. He is survived by his parents Yolanda Ruvalcaba, Antonio Ruvalcaba Sr. and partner Sulena Savage, brother Antonio Ruvalcaba Jr. and wife Kristina, paternal grandmother Alicia Ruvalcaba, maternal grandfather Sabino Valdez Sr., godparents Roy and Elizabeth Hoats, and countless aunts, uncles, and cousins that will miss him tremendously. We take solace in knowing our beautiful Matthew is now free and reunited in heaven with his best four-legged friend Boots.
