Matthew Joseph Hammerstone of Easton, PA passed away suddenly in an accident on Wednesday, November 18, 2020. He was 21.

Born in Abington, PA, Matt resided in Haycock, PA before moving to Williams Township with his grandmother.

Matt was a graduate of Wilson Area High School in Easton, PA and was working on finishing the requirements to receive a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice from DeSales University in Center Valley, PA in the Spring of 2021. For the past eight years, he worked as a cook and server with the Springfield Diner. Matt enjoyed landscaping for friends and caring for their properties. He loved travelling, practice shooting at the Springtown Rod & Gun Club, photography, videography, playing video games with on-line friends and bright vivid colors, especially orange. Matt was the type of person that would arrange a vacation to travel out west for his grandmother to see one of her favorite stars at the age of 89 or travel to the Grand Canyon on a whim with his mother. He was a selfless and caring young man who was adventurous, curious and technology loving, always figuring out issues or problems for family and friends. Matt especially loved to travel and surprise his girlfriend Madison and had many more trips planned. He will be loved and missed by his family, dear friends, and co-workers.

He was the beloved son of Donna Czerniak and fiancé Rob Steinberg, and Terry Hammerstone and wife Jennifer; dear brother of Erika Delgado and husband Harry; loving step-brother of Katelyn Johnson, Leeanne Johnson, Shannon Johnson, Samuel Nauman and Josiah Johnson; cherished grandson of Helen Hammerstone and Margaret Czerniak; nephew of Thomas Hammerstone and wife Diane, Holly Hammerstone, Robert Czerniak and wife Norma, and Edward Czerniak and husband Karen; and devoted boyfriend to Madison Ritter.

A viewing will be held at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, 5194 Cold Spring Creamery Road, Doylestown, PA 18901 on Tuesday, November 24, 2020 from 4:00-8:00 pm.

Private cremation will follow.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Matt's memory to North Penn High School, Attn: Mr. Nick Taylor, 1340 S. Valley Forge Road, Lansdale, PA 19446 - Checks should be made payable to: NPHS Sr. Awards Program.

I knew Matt from the Springfield diner. I always looked forward to talking to Matt. One of the nicest and interesting people I have met. We talked and his birthday, travel plans, school, his grandmother and just general life. I will miss his smile and terrific positive attitude. Please take comfort in how nice he has been to people and how he touched those around him. I think about him every day. God bless

I knew Matt from his work at the Springfield Diner. He was unfailingly polite and always a gracious host, making me feel welcome as a customer. Being good with people is a hard skill to master and he made it look easy. Please accept our condolences for your loss. My wife and I made a donation to the NPHS Sr. Awards Program in Matt’s memory.

I was one of Matthew’s fellow Criminal Justice majors. I had many classes with Matthew and sat next to him for our Research Methods class. He really was a great and smart person. He will always be remembered. Please know your entire family is in my thoughts and prayers!

As a fellow criminal justice student at DeSales, Matt and I had several classes together and were always talking about the future since we both planned on becoming police officers. Matt helped me get through cybercrime and we worked on some projects together in class as well. He was a great young man with a bright future. My deepest condolences to the family. You are all in my families thoughts and prayers.

I had the privilege and honor to serve as Matt’s academic advisor at DeSales University. His energy and positive attitude will be greatly missed. I fondly remember discussing his plans to travel to Spain for the summer prior to COVID-19. Please accept my deepest condolences and prayers.
