Matthew Jonathan Trask 1989 – 2018 AUGUSTA – Matthew Jonathan Trask, 28, died at home on Friday, May 25, 2018, from an apparent overdose. Mat was born in Augusta on August 12, 1989, the oldest son of Brenda Sage and Darrell Trask. Many knew him locally from playing cards, his volunteering at the food bank, going to concerts, and his work at Hollywood Video. Mat never forgot a person he’d met. He told the best stories, with his signature flair for creative expression through random comparisons, impersonations, and descriptors. He was smart, hilarious, and open minded. He was passionate about justice, equality and human decency and loved his family and friends. Mat was most recently predeceased by his great aunt Phyllis McGuire, who was like his 2nd mother. Phyllis was the backbone and matriarch of our family. Besides his parents he is survived by his wife Cathryn Skaleski Trask and their daughter Sarah Madeleine; his oldest daughter Cheyenne Lily; his brothers Joshua and Zachary Trask; his grandparents Madolyn and Nolan Sage; his great uncle Philip Burnham who was like his 2nd father; his soul brother Spencer Chandler; a niece and nephew; and many aunts, uncles, cousins, and dear friends. He loved you all, and I thank you for loving my son. There will be a celebration of life Friday, June 1, at 6 p.m. at the Gardiner Elks Lodge, 148 Cobbossee Avenue in Gardiner where Mat enjoyed many times playing cards. This is not a traditional service, but a get together for loved ones to share their stories and for mutual support. Arrangements are under the care of Plummer Funeral Home in Augusta.
