Paul Matthew “Matt” Morse

Dec. 9, 1985 – Nov. 6, 2021

Paul Matthew “Matt” Morse, 35, Carmel, perished in a tragic single vehicle crash on his way to work Saturday morning, Nov. 6, 2021.

He was born Dec. 9, 1985 in Muncie, to Douglas and Cynthia (Bentz) Morse, who survive him. 

Mr. Morse graduated in 2005 from Hamilton Heights High School at Arcadia, where he was active in football and wrestling. He was employed at Landscapes Unlimited as a Foreman of the Design and Build group as he had a keen eye for designing and building hardscapes.

He was quite a perfectionist in his work and wanted to ensure his clients were happy. He always kept his co-workers entertained with his quick wit, contagious smile and quirky sayings.

Mr. Morse lived his life to the fullest and enjoyed the simple things in life.  He was kind-hearted, loved animals, music, the Miami Hurricanes, the great outdoors and spending time with family and friends.  Mr. Morse’s favorite pastime of all was spending time with his two children, Bashtian Matthew Morse, age six, and Espyn Grace Morse, age four. When they were together, it was often hard to tell who was having the most fun, daddy or his kids. Mr. Morse was a loving and attentive dad who always wanted the best for his babies. He is also leaving a huge hole in the hearts of all who knew and loved him.

It will never be the same without his humor, his contagious laugh, dazzling smile, sparkling blue eyes and the best hugs ever. With faith, love and being a close and supportive family they are determined to somehow make it through the pain and sorrow.

Survivors include his parents, Doug and Cyndi (Bentz) Morse; his two children, Bashtian Matthew Morse and Espyn Grace Morse; sister, Staci “Sis” Bond; niece, Alexa “Doodles” Bond; aunts, uncles and cousins.

A celebration of life service will be held Monday, Nov. 15, 2021 at Hartley Funeral Home Cicero Chapel, 209 West Jackson Street in Cicero, Ind. with visitation from 1 to 3 p.m. Services will begin at 3 p.m., with Pastor Mark Knapp officiating.
