Christie, Mathew Vay, 24, Windber, passed Jan. 21, 2016, at Memorial Medical Center. Born at Yokota Air Base Tachikawa, Tokyo, Japan, on Jan. 7, 1992, son of Wendy Geibig and Marc Christie. Preceded in death by maternal grandmother, Geraldine Weyandt, and paternal grandfather, Mark Christie. Survived by his mother and stepfather, Wendy and Scott Geibig; father and stepmother, Marc and Linda Christie; brother, SPC Michael Christie; sister, Chelsea Christie; stepsisters Millisa, Socorro and Krystal; nephew, Angel; niece, Gabriela; maternal grandparents, Frank and Cheryl Weyandt; paternal grandparents, Delores and Richard Schmidt; uncles, Frank Weyandt, Chris Weyandt, Max Christie and JV Guzman; aunts, Crissy Weyandt, Shanan Guzman and Carla Christie; special cousins Alexis and Lucy Weyandt, along with many other cousins who will miss him dearly; and best friends, Courtney Baldwin and Mykkie Ritenour. Mathew graduated from Windber High School in 2010 and was employed at Health Net Federal Services. He was a kind, gentle, and free spirit who had more dreams than any one person could have at one time. His biggest passion was expressing himself through music, whether writing songs, performing for others or teaching guitar. An unconditional friend to anyone who took the time to know him, he truly had a heart of gold. Though he may not have accomplished all he wanted in this life, we know in our hearts that the tremendous impact he made on others may help them realize their dreams and Mathew would feel as proud and as blessed as we do, to know that several lives were given a second chance through organ donation. Friends will be received from 1 to 3 p.m. and from 5 until time of service at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 26 at Hindman Funeral Homes & Crematory Inc., 1521 Frankstown Road, Pastor David McGee, officiating. Because Mathew was very proud of his brother currently serving in the Middle East, in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Wounded Warrior Project, P.O.
