Matt was born in Berkeley on August 22, 1999. He passed away in his sleep on March 26, from unknown causes, at age 18.
Matt is survived by his mom Patti Wells, his dad Loren Bloomberg, his sister Allie Bloomberg, and his grandmothers Joan Wells and Tobi Bloomberg. His grandfathers Don Wells and Jerry Bloomberg passed before him. He was close to his many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Matt and his family moved to Ladera Ranch at age 4. He went to school at Ladera Ranch Elementary, Ladera Ranch Middle School, Temecula Valley High School (10th grade only) and graduated San Juan Hills High School in June 2017. He was taking classes at Saddleback College.
Matt could make instant friends with anyone – from a baby to a CEO – and had a huge circle of friends from school and beyond. He was together with his girlfriend Codie from the start of senior year – they were the couple that everyone wanted to be.
Matt played baseball from tee ball through his sophomore year in high school. He mostly played catcher and pitcher. He was a power hitter, strong-armed catcher, and crafty pitcher with a big curveball. His proudest baseball moment was when his 12-year-old team won the District 68 Little League championship in San Clemente.
Matt could master anything involving balance and speed and daring: skateboards, trick bikes, trampolines, cliffs, and big waves. He never turned down an amusement park – always loving the tallest, fastest ride.
He loved eating well (especially sushi at Kotobuki in Laguna Hills with his dad), Disneyland trips with his mom, sister, and friends; travel anywhere near and far; the newest electronic devices, and dressing well (especially his watches and suits). His red hair, infectious smile, and big personality made him larger than life.
