Obituary of Mathew Vernon Trimper

Mathew Vernon Trimper, 42, of Phillipsburg, New Jersey passed away suddenly on December 8th, 2022 at St. Luke’s Hospital Warren Campus. Mathew was born on January 9th, 1980 to his loving mother Karen Reed. Mathew grew up in Phillipsburg and graduated from Phillipsburg High School in 1998. Following graduation Mathew worked for many years at Walmart until his battle with diabetes became too debilitating. Mathew was a huge fan of all things gaming and spent countless hours campaigning and battling online with friends from all across the world. He was also an avid collector of models and gaming figurines and had amassed a collection that could fill a small store even. Mathew will be forever remembered as a kind soul and will be sorely missed by all of those who knew him.

Karen would like to extend her utmost appreciation to the nurses and doctors that worked so hard caring for Mathew in the ICU at St. Lukes Warren.
