Matthew Wilder Litfin
November 14, 2013, 05:00 AM

Matthew Wilder Litfin, age 52, died quietly in the hospital Oct. 28, 2013, in San Mateo after a two-month battle with pulmonary hypertension. Matt leaves friends in San Mateo, Novato, Davenport, Idyllwild, Santa Cruz and long-ago Tahoe. 

Matt was gregarious, vocal, cheerful, energetic and always reaching out to help … anyone and everyone. Always a fixer-upper, he loved to reclaim, repair, modify and enhance all manner of autos, appliances, circuits, even structures.

Matt was very much focused on living vigorously in the now, very close in to his family and some special friends.

He had very discerning tastes in contemporary music. His interest in ecology, his dystopian movie collection, his special computer setups and other special events were always on Matt’s regular beat.

“We all were very disappointed he couldn’t attend the Americas Cup regatta, the celebrations and the entire extravaganza in San Francisco last summer.”

He will be missed by mother Patricia Litfin and father Robert Litfin, his sister Katy Kuhn and Hugh Kuhn, along with his whole extended family in the South Bay.
