The life of Matthew Jared Elam
flowed with the power and passion of a mighty river. On May 20, 2017, he
rounded the river bend and passed from this life into the next adventure.
Matt was born in Boise on March 29,
1979 to Glenn and Viktoria Elam. He was fiercely proud of his Idaho upbringing,
which was his “playground” from an early age to his passing. His Soul is
forever in the hills, mountains and rivers of Idaho.
Matt is survived by his bestfriend
and wife, Tarrah Allmaras-Elam and their three beautiful children Kovis age 2
and Avia and Koen, infant twins. He is also survived by his beloved brother
Andrew and his parents Glenn and Viktoria as well as family and friends.
Matt’s early years were filled with
sports, adventures and friends that would last a lifetime. Tarrah and Matt met
early in life and began a love affair filled with world travel and a quest to
passionately discover all life had to offer.
Matt fulfilled a lifetime of dreams
by accepting challenges both personally and professionally. His natural
abilities, athleticism, incredible kindness and intellect enabled him to
succeed in every aspect of his life: as son, brother, husband, father, friend,
and human being filled with integrity and compassion.
The depth of his work on Earth will
forever be felt as the ripples flow outward making the world a better place.
His bright spirit and wisdom continue to light the way as he travels farther
down the river.
