Obituary for Matthew Pisanchyn

Matthew  Pisanchyn
Matthew Pisanchyn, 29, of S. Abington Township, passed from this life tragically early Saturday morning from injuries sustained in a car accident. Matt was born March 11th, 1989 to the parents of Dr. Gary and Ann Pipcho Pisanchyn.
He was a 2007 graduate of Abington Heights High School, 2011 graduate of Temple University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and German, and a 2013 graduate of Bloomsburg University with a Bachelor of Science in Geology. He was currently employed by Acker Drill Company in the International Sales division.
Matt had an introspective view of the world, and was fascinated by ancient Roman history, antique silver, and all things culinary. Our family has been exposed to cultures and cuisines from all over the world, thanks to his curiosities, interests, and the time he took to translate ancient Roman cookbooks. Matt was also a voracious reader, and absorbed knowledge, which he shared with anyone who was lucky enough to be in his presence.
Matt’s latest project was a wooded parcel of land that he, his brother, and father bought together in a remote area of Northern Wayne County. He spent endless hours classifying and collecting native plants, which would soon be planted in his garden.
In addition to his parents, Matt is survived by a brother Daniel, of Philadelphia, a sister Amy, of Pittsburgh; maternal grandmother, Dorothy Pipcho; paternal grandparents, Joseph and Dorothy Pisanchyn; many aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Robert Pipcho. The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to all friends and family who have assisted us in this tragedy.
“Death smiles at us all, but all a man can do is smile back”-Marcus Aurelius, Meditations.
Family and friends may pay their respects on Wednesday from 4:30-6:30pm at Solfanelli-Fiorillo Funeral Home Inc., 1030 N. Main Ave. Scranton.
