On Friday, Aug. 26, 2022, Matthew Ryan Richter lost his hard-fought battle of over 10 years to Huntington’s disease.

Matt was born and lived here in the North Woods all of his life, living briefly in Appleton, Wis., and New London, Wis.

He was a true nature lover and enjoyed the outdoors while fishing, hunting, camping, swimming, skiing and boating. He was an avid sports fan, loving the Packers and playing youth and high school hockey.

He is survived by mother, Vicky (Jesse) Slizewski; brother, Ryan Richter; daughter, McKayla Fitz; and many uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces and cousins.

He was preceded in death by father, Michael Richter; grandparents, Gene and Marsha Richter, and Richard and Beverly Patek; and uncles, aunts and cousins.

A private gathering will be held at a future date.
