Matthew was born December 1, 1970 in Moline, IL to Gregory and Eileen Davidson. Matt married Shelly Noyd April 7, 1994 in Aledo.

Matt was known to most as an extraordinary musician. He performed in many bands over the years, sometimes with siblings, primarily as lead guitarist and singer, but could play just about any instrument he touched. Apart from his love for music, Matt enjoyed many hobbies such as fishing, gardening, and tinkering with anything mechanical including building and shooting off rockets. Most of all, Matthew loved his family. His daughters, grandchildren, and Chug Dog Davidson meant the world to him.

Survivors include daughter, Haley (Kevin) Jimenez and grandchildren, Joy and Paul Jimenez; daughter, Lucille Davidson; mother and step-father, Eileen and Lewis Wiley; sisters, Tina Davidson, Tamara (Daniel) Burkart, Toni (Bruce) Davidson, and Julie (Berry) Jacobs; brother, Eric (Jolene) Davidson; step-sister, Ann Marie McGlynn; and many nieces and nephews.

Matthew was preceded in death by his father, Gregory Davidson; grandparents, Lincoln and Evelyn Davidson and Fred and Lucille Barks; niece, Amee Bieri; and nephew, Joseph Davidson; and many dear friends and extended family.

Matt will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

The family would like to thank all those who came to visit him in his last days as well as the doctors, nurses, and staff at Genesis East in Davenport, IA.
