Matthew Joseph Moeddel, Beloved son of Audrey Ruth and the late Robert Moeddel, loving father of Wilson the pug, brother of Joshua (Melissa) Moeddel and Bethany Moeddel, and loved by many other family and friends.
Matt was a friend to everyone and enjoyed spending his time watching Norte Dame football, watching the Cincinnati Reds game and most important with his dog, Wilson. Matt was known for his work at Bridgeway Pointe being the terrific nurse he was. When he wasn’t working would vacation down to the Smokey Mountains. Matt was well loved by many in both his work and personal life.
A private visitation will be held to honor the life of Matt and a Memorial Mass of Christian burial will take place at a later date.
In Lieu of flowers donations can be made to the American Heart Association and Animal House Shelter (Mt. Health)

I am so sad to learn of Matt’s passing, and have had a hard time finding words… I send my condolences and prayers to Matt’s family, friends, and colleagues. Matt took care of my parents at Burlington House with grace, calm and compassion - as he did with all residents. He always listened to concerns, and was the voice of calm and peace in the midst of whatever might be going on. He always took time to smile and reach out. Friends of mine mentioned that it was Matt who was working nights when their loved ones were first admitted to Burlington House. His welcoming presence helped the families know everything would be all right. I was fortunate to re-connect with Matt at Bridgeway Pointe a few years later when I went there to play music, and was able to share my gratitude with him for his care. I recognize so many of you who wrote in from Burlington House and Bridgeway Pointe, and thank you all for having taken care of my parents at both places, as I thank Matt. I love you all. Matt was taken too soon. Matt, may you RIP. I’ll miss you.

Matt! I have no words. I can not believe that you are gone. You were absolutely the best person- good heart- fair- understanding - you had the best spirit. It was a honor to have known you. May you Rest In Peace with our God. You will be missed- but never forgotten. Sending love and light to your family. So very sorry for their loss! ❤️
Jan Clark - May 26, 2020
I am so very sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time.
Nancy McDonald - May 25, 2020
Our sincere condolences and prayers to the Moeddel family. My brother has been a Bridgeway Pointe resident for many years. After a medical incident last year, he was so ready to come back to BP after rehab! Even though it meant more work for Matt and the BP team, Matt agreed to his return rather than staying in rehab longer and they all made it work! Kudos to Matt and the entire BP team!
Karrie - May 25, 2020
I'm so sorry for your loss. I want you to know what terrific, kind, caring and embracing person. He brought me in with open arms and we just clicked. Professionally we shared a lot of the same views. I am still in shock but wanted you to know how he touched others.
Sheri Corrigan - May 25, 2020
Prayers for the family. I've known Matt since he became a nurse. He was the most selfless person I've ever known. You could feel the love from this young man. His smile would light up the darkest of days. I will never forget you Matt. You were truly one of a kind. Taken too soon my friend. RIP
Shawanda jones - May 25, 2020
My prayers go out to the family I met Matt at brookdale and he was an awesome boss and awesome person. This breaks my heart that such a great person has left us so soon. Matt also was a person you could talk to and actually listen not all bosses do that. You will be missed but remembered my friend.
Trish Szabo, Queen City Hospice - May 24, 2020
I cannot put into words how sad I am on the loss of Matt. He was such a good guy to work with at Bridgeway Pointe. One of the most pleasant and personable nurses ever. Rest in our Father's arms, Matt. You will be greatly missed
Tom and Mary Lou Stark - May 24, 2020
When we see him, we cannot help vividly remembering his father, Robert Moeddel who pass way before his time, like his son. There are no suitable words we can share with Ruth, his mother,Beth, his sister, and Josh, his brother that would express our sincere sadness and sympathy. Mary Lou, and I are painfully saddened with this tragedy and are praying for the entire Moeddel family. We hope you can find peace and comfort in your sorrow as you remember Matt. Tom and Mary Lou Stark
Nancy Brothers - May 24, 2020

Jacqueline Ringer - May 24, 2020
Matt you were truly one of a kind. You brought out the true meaning of leadership in the work environment. Your positive and upbeat attitudeand calming personality made it absolutely impossible for me to stay upset or have a bad day at work. I have seen you with nothing but a smile on your face and I wondered if you ever get upset about anything. You were the light in the midst of darkness and you sir will truly be missed. Fly high my guy. Dear God comfort Matt's family right now in this time of hurt and pain. I ask that you wipe every tear and make your loving presence known to them. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.
Lisa Dario - May 24, 2020
There are no words to explain this. I suppose God was in need of a great nurse in Heaven. Matt will be missed by so many at Bridgeway Pointe. Prayers of love and support to all of his family.
Cathy Burke - May 24, 2020
A life taken too soon. Matt was beautiful inside and out. What a kind soul he had. Great conversations about sports and life. Makes you laugh and think at the same time. The heavens received a angel. My thoughts are with his family.
Helen Yurong - May 24, 2020
Matt Moeddel was a kind, caring and compassionate man who excelled as the Director of Nursing at Bridgeway Pointe. I had the honor of meeting Matt when my mother resided at Bridgeway Pointe. A highly skilled nurse, Matt displayed a unique talent for coordinating the competent and complex care of many elderly residents. His sense of humor was consistently evident in his interactions with staff, residents and families. He will be truly missed. I wish his family strength and moments of comfort during this difficult time.

Nina Johns - May 23, 2020
I am very sorry to hear of Matt's passing and my sincere condolences to his family. My mother was resident at Bridgeway Pointe until 2017 and Matt was a magnificent caregiver, achieving little miracles a daughter never could. Even when he had to deliver difficult news, he was the soul of compassion, and courtesy. I wish I'd not let so much time go by without saying "Hello". Godspeed Matt to his eternal rest.
Corey Bowman - May 23, 2020
I am saddened to hear of Matt’s passing. I came to know him when he purchased his home in October and also was the culprit who told him where he could find Wilson who I know he adored. He and I had many conversations about our shared love of all things Christmas and our favorite “It’s a Wonderful Life”. I know what a loss this is to your family and how very close you all are. My prayers are with you. Please give Wilson hugs and kisses for me. I know he misses his dad’

I remember meeting Matt he worked night shifts at BH he was always pleasant and always in good spirits. Laughter about the crazy things that went on but when he became the D.O.N at BH he looked out for us STNA’S and Nurses he was a man of his word and I appreciated that in him because although he was a nurse on the floor he keep that same energy as a D.O.N . I appreciated that in him . You will truly be missed but God has you now he needed you so he called you to glory. RIP Matt !
