MANCHESTER, NH – Matthew James Danault, 25, passed away in Manchester on December 10, 2018.

Matt, who was born and raised in Manchester, was the son of Mark Danault and Elisabeth (Bartlett) Danault and the brother of Michael Danault of Manchester, Jeffrey Danault of Clarksville, TN, and David Danault of Lake Wood Ranch, FL. He also leaves behind a grandmother, Polly Perry of Naples FL; a niece, Bella Danault of Tennessee; a nephew, Samuel Danault of Florida, and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He graduated from Manchester West High School in 2011 and studied at the Manchester Community College. Matt worked as a sous chef at the Texas Roadhouse in Manchester and was currently pursuing a career in Inventory management while working full-time at WIS International.

Matt was –  and is – loved by his family and will be greatly missed. He will be remembered as a kind, sensitive and gentle human being, with a beautiful soul. He was a good person, and his smile could light up your heart. He was a wonderful son to both of his parents and a loving brother who had an especially close bond with his younger brother, Michael.

He loved all animals and had many pets while growing up. He was closest to his dog, Belle.

Matt was taken too soon. He had so much potential and was looking forward to his future. He was ready to launch into his adult life and was working hard and looking forward to moving into his first apartment.

His family still needs him, but God decided he needed Matt more and chose to take him home where he will be welcomed into heaven by his grandparents, James and Eleanor Bartlett and Victor Danault.
