Matthew Bakelman, age 75, passed away on Monday, May 15, 2017 at Baylor White & Scott in Frisco, Tx. Born in 1941 in Providence, Rhode Island. He is survived by his wife of 46 years Dee Bakelman; Sons, Kieth & Scott, Daughters, Ann & Shelly, five grand-children, and three great-grandchildren, brother Albert Bakelman (Lehigh Acres, FL) and sister Betty Seidman (East Hartford, CT).

Matthew was born and raised in Providence, Rhode Island, one of four children to John and Esther Bakelman. He served four years in the US Army from 1959 - 1962. He spent nearly 40 years in Connecticut working primarily in Sales/Retail. He met Dee in East Hartford, CT and they were married in January of 1971 in New Hampshire. His passions included family, traveling, flea markets, and classic car shows. In 2009 they moved to Texas. While in Texas, Matthew pursued the same passions and added a few new adventures, such as discovering the Texas Landscape, Vending at Craft Shows and making puzzles.

Matthew's family will always cherish his charming demeanor, dry-humor, loyalty as a husband, father, and friend.

Matthew's family and friends appreciated his dry-humor coupled by jokes that never made it to the 'punch-line', his unforgettable laugh, and his simple outlook and approach to life.

We all love, and miss our chats with you Matthew - until next time.
