Obituary for Matthew Joseph Hammerstone

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.
