Matthew Joseph Sprague
February, 6 1990 May 10, 2012

Matthew is survived by his mother Paula Mugavero, step father Dave Mugavero, and step brother Chad Mugavero, father Brian Sprague, step mother Janice Sprague, brother Michael Sprague, and sister Georgia Sprague, grandparents Dolores and Roland LaRue, grandmother Ann Sprague, and grandparents Lou and Don Gibbs. He is a beloved son, brother, and grandson to his family, and dear friend to many.

Matthew was a very loving person with a huge heart who had a positive effect on his family and friends. He was always willing to help someone in need if he could. He loved the outdoors, the mountains, and the oceans. He was a free spirit. He had many aspirations of what he wanted to do with his life including making music or entering the medical field, but left us at too young an age to succeed in these.

A Vigil Service will be held for Matthew on Wednesday May 16th, from 7-9:00PM at O’Connor Mortuary in Laguna Hills. A Funeral Mass will be held for him on May 17th at 11:00AM at St Thomas More Catholic Church in Irvine.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Matthews honor to First Step House of Orange County, a non-profit organization here in Orange County and an establishment that had helped Matthew in the past.

    Dear Brian and Janice, Paula and Dave, Michael, Chad, and Georgia,
    I can’t begin to tell you how shocked and saddened I was yesterday when I heard about Matthew’s passing. I can only imagine the pain and anguish you must be going through. To lose a child has got to be one of the hardest things in life!
    I have very fond memories of Matthew and the summers, trips, and vacations we all spent together. Matthew was always the happiest boy in the bunch. He had the most beautiful smile, a playful and energetic personality, and his hearty laughs were sure to turn many heads…especially in public 🙂 I loved watching those boys entertain us, and watch them grow. Matthew will forever be a part of me and my family
    Though the miles and the years have caused us some separation, my memories of Matthew and those happy times we spent together will never fade. I know that words cannot ease your pain, but please know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers.

    God Bless Matthew and all of you!

    Love always, Joe, Holly, Craig, Mark and Eric
