Robertson, Matthew Matthew (Matt) James Robertson of Islip, New York, passed away on June 6, 2022 in Mineola, New York, at the age of 30 following a brief illness.

After getting married in September 2021, New York couple Matthew and Graziella “Gracie” Robertson were thrilled to learn that they were expecting their most memorable child, a child girl.

“Matthew was out there saw little child shoes and child clothing the next I got the positive test,” Gracie tells PEOPLE. He was quite keen to start a family.

She claims that while they were on trips, “he was building stuff for the kid.” Therefore, it follows that you will be exhausted and that your back will pain.

The couple had no idea at the time that Matthew actually had epithelioid angiosarcoma, an intriguing cancerous tumor that affected the veins. It ultimately led to his death on June 6, at the age of 30, just three weeks after his most memorable visit to a trauma center and five weeks before the due date of his child’s young lady.
