Townquare Media Staff Remembers Matt Turnbull
Matt ‘Nameless The Intern’ Turnbull was more than just an intern to us - he was also a friend to us. Though Matt's life was taken away too soon - he will always remain in our hearts. The Townsquare Media staff share their last goodbyes with a dear friend who will be forever missed.
Chris O'brien: 'Matt would say that somehow we must pick ourselves up and move on. I’ll always have pictures and recordings of crazy things that we did. I’ll always have those memories. But he won’t be calling the station after hours saying “Can you let me in?” He won’t be roaming the halls telling everyone he’s hungry and that we should order a pizza. He won’t be laughing his stupid, immature, beautiful laugh. He won’t be coming to me for advice on love, politics or religion. I took those talks for granted and now I’ll miss them.'
Jolene Wallace: 'Matt Turnbull was truly one of a kind, a real genuine guy. He always had a smile on his face and a Mountain Dew in his hand. He was a hard worker and gave 110% in all that he attempted. I will always remember him calling me “The Queen of the Gasoline” and asking me for love advice. He’d call me up and want to request a Big and Rich song once in a while. Those are the memories of Matt that I will never forget. He was and will always be a big part of our radio family. I pray for his family in their time of mourning. I’ll miss him dearly. Rest easy, my friend.'
Carla Bechard: 'People walk in and out of our life constantly. Some you forget instantly, some, the special ones, you remember forever. Matt, Nameless the Intern, or Matty, as I like to call you, YOU were one of the special ones. My heart is broken today, but your memory will make me smile every day. Love you Matty! RIP my friend!'
Bob Cadigan: 'Matt, I hardly knew you, most days I only knew you as “Nameless” . We were rarely in the same place at the same time. But I remember your smile and exuberance, and now for the rest of my days I will remember the pain and sense of loss so obvious from the tears and sadness on the faces of those who had the good fortune to know you longer and better than I did. I cannot imagine, for a moment, their pain or that of your family, especially your parents at this time. My thoughts and prayers are for you and them and I wish for you eternal Peace.'
Susan McCormick: 'Although I didn’t see you often, it was an honor to know you. I always looked forward to hearing you 'silly guys' on Chris’ show. There was a spirit about you that was undeniably yours and a young happiness that was contagious. Our Christmas parties were the best with you and Jack. As a Mom, my heart aches and grieves for your family. Rest in Peace Matt.'
Miranda Levesque: 'Matty or the intern is how I was introduced to him when I first started working here. He had a great sense of humor and his laugh was very contagious. Every time you walked into the studio you had a smile on your face, which made me happy instantly. I very glad to say that I got the chance to know him as a great guy he truly is A good friend, a sweetheart of a guy, and a family man. Rest in Peace Matty you’ll be missed by many!'
Lisa Miles: 'You can’t think of Matt Turnbull without smiling. Maybe that’s because he always had that grin on his face? He was always quick to say hello, quick with his laughter, quick to lend a hand and ready to share his latest opinion on whatever favorite thing or idea was in his head at that moment. He would bounce in and bounce out…. And we would always shake our heads and smile. He was a fun, loveable goof – in the very best of ways – with a huge heart. Who else could get away with nicknames like ‘Captain Outstanding’ or ‘Nameless the Intern’? He was one-of-a-kind and we miss him deeply.'
Funeral details: Family and friends may call 7-9 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, at Lancaster-Morgan Funeral Home, Caribou, where a funeral service will be held 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 11, with Pastor Gordon Compton officiating.
Rest in peace Matt - you will be missed!
