Matthew graduated from Walker High School, Birmingham Southern College and Cumberland Law School. Those who knew Matt even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives. We will miss Matt’s laughter, humor and love. He had a big heart and never met a stranger. Matt always had a strong work ethic. He loved the family farm and being outdoors. He was happiest when hiking or riding the trails. As we reflect back over the past several months we are forever grateful that God granted us several weeks at the farm with Matt. Those memories are in our hearts and will sustain us going forward.  

He was preceded in death by his son, John Hendrix Poe; grandparents, Curtis Poe, Florence Johnson; and uncle, Tommy Johnson. 

He is survived by his wife, Nicole Brown Poe; children, Drew Poe, Elijah Coleman and Henry Jackson Poe; parents, J.C. and Patty Poe; uncles, Steve Johnson (Linda), Doug Poe (Beth); aunts, Pam Johnson (Ricky Clements), Gail Johnson, Elaine Calvert (Sherywon); grandmother, Sue Poe; in-laws, Wayne and Peggy Brown and a host of cousins and friends. 

Honorary Pallbearer will be Herbie Brewer. 

Pallbearers will be Joel Johnson, Jeremy Johnson, Logan Johnson, Brett Calvert, Taylor Poe and Brandon McMurry.
