Matthew Lee Pope

Matthew Lee Pope, age 17, of Madisonville, Texas, was called home to be with his Lord and Savior January 10, 2023. He was the oldest of four boys, and was born in Denver, Colorado November 3, 2005 to parents, Adam Lee Pope & Leisa Marie (McCollum) Pope. He lived most of his life in Madisonville, attending Madisonville CISD, prior to being homeschooled throughout his high school years. This afforded Matthew the opportunity to work fulltime at a young age doing what he loved doing....welding, working cattle and horses, as well as working at the sale barn in Navasota. He loved his mama and strived to help take care of her and his brothers. Matthew also enjoyed hog hunting in his free time. He will forever be remembered as a young man who genuinely loved the Lord, and wasn't afraid to share Jesus with others.
