Matthew Thomas Eastman of Annapolis, loving husband and father, died Feb. 2, 2017, surrounded by his family. He was 58.
Matt was born Feb. 27, 1958 in Mineola, New York to the late Harold and Joan Eastman. As the second of eight children, Matt grew up on Long Island where he developed his love for the bay, the ocean, clamming and fishing.
In 1986 he moved to Annapolis with his brother Mark and began the first of his two businesses while completing his bachelor’s degree in business at the University of Maryland. He then worked as a senior loan officer and property manager in Maryland for more than 25 years.
Matt was an elder at Pasadena Evangelical Presbyterian Church, involved with local prison ministry and was hoping to complete his seminary degree from Covenant Theological Seminary.
Matt is survived by his wife, Patricia Eastman; his children Emily Shaughnessy, Eric Shaughnessy, Luke Eastman and Kurt Eastman; and his sisters Joan Heinemeyer, Laurie Donkin, Meg Estabrook and Adrienne Small.
A memorial service celebrating Matt’s life will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 10 at Severna Park Evangelical Presbyterian Church, 110 Ritchie Hwy., Pasadena, MD. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Pasadena EP Church, 7975 Tick Neck Rd., Pasadena, MD.
