Matthew Kotecki

August 23, 1998 — November 16, 2023

Idaho Falls

Our son Matthew Quang Kotecki passed away on November 16th, 2023.  Matthew was born on August 23rd, 1998, in Vietnam. He leaves behind his devoted Mother and Father and his two dogs Jax and Jake, which he loved so much.  Matthew graduated from Skyline High School in Idaho Falls, Idaho, where his father taught. Matthew was Senior Class President and actively involved in Yearbook. He enjoyed working with Graphic Designs, which he pursued at the University of Idaho. Unfortunately, he was born with cerebral palsy and struggled until the end with bipolar disorder. Matthew was an organ donor so some good would come from his death. Matthew is loved by his grand-parent's, Maria and Vincenzo Scali, (both deceased), David and MaryAnn Kotecki, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousin's whom all live in Cleveland, Ohio, and his god-mother Maricela Artalejo who lives in Boise, Idaho. We are beyond blessed from all the prayers, love and support from our families and friends. To our son Matthew, we love you, miss you so much and thank God for choosing you to be our son. Rest in Peace.
