Matt Ingraffia, age 27, of Houston, TX, beloved husband of Ryan Ann Peterson Ingraffia, died suddenly on Friday, December 29, 2017 in Canton, GA. In addition to his loving wife Ryan and adored puppy, Daisy, Matt is survived by his mother Brenda Ingraffia Burcaw of Houston, TX, Mother and Father-in-law Sally and Scott Peterson of Canton, GA, brothers-in-law Alex and Eric Peterson, step siblings, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Matt was born on April 23, 1990 to Brenda Joyce Binkholder Ingraffia and Michael Haynes Ingraffia. He is preceded in death by his father, Maternal grandparents Ervin and Norma Binkholder and Paternal grandparents Mike and Arlene Ingraffia. Matt attended Roswell Public Schools, Riverside Military Academy, Southern Polytechnic State University, and the University of Houston.

Matt and Ryan had recently relocated to Houston, so Matt could fulfill his dream of becoming a Meteorologist. At the time of his death he was a student at the University of Houston studying Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. Matt had a life long passion for weather and had wanted to "chase storms" since the age of five. As the world watched in fear for all residents of Houston, TX with Hurricane Harvey approaching, Matt was outside watching with unbridled excitement of seeing an unprecedented weather event. Matt and Ryan had found their spiritual home with Bayou City Fellowship in Houston where they made wonderful friends in their young married small group.

Matt had the distinction of Eagle Scout and loved scouting, the outdoors, swimming, golfing, travel, and supporting Atlanta sports teams. He was passionate about music and attended countless concerts. Most of all, he longed to spend time with friends and family. Matt was a kind and caring soul with many who loved him dearly. Matt never knew a stranger and never had an unkind word to say about anyone. He soars above us now, with his dad, watching over us and keeping us in his loving embrace.
