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.

  1. Matthew, you are the gorgeous kid who lived around the corner from us in Irvine. We watched you grow into a handsome man that is loved by so many. We shared times of great joy and transition together. At the beach in San Clemente, snowboarding in Big Bear, holidays and lots of special hugs and kisses. You are in our hearts and your spirit surrounds us. We love you now and will continue to love you throughout eternity. Cynthia, Ed & Natalia Stadelman

  2. We will remember Matthew with his big smile when we were at the gym. We are sure he is smiling down on all of you right now. Love, The Makowski’s

  3. I love you always, Matt
