I knew Matt through our time together at Camp Longhorn. I will always remember when we were Rangers and he played Taps on his trumpet at Church Mountain. He was so talented. He will forever be a part of my camp memories. May he rest in peace.

I am extremely saddened for the loss of such a great young man. Mathew was a student of mine in daycare and quickly gained everyone’s hearts with his smile and silly gestures. Ms Martha and Mr Bondoc, I am so heartbroken and I am so sorry for your loss. On behalf of Golden Steps, accept our condolences and may you and your family find peace. Ana Zapata

Matt was the sweetest person I have ever met. I met him at camp and I asked him if he could sing for me before we left and he sang a solo in "All of me" in front of half the camp. Sending my thoughts and prayers.

My deepest sympathy for your loss. I knew Matthew since he was in 6th grade when I would substitute for band class in TMS. He was a very talented, nice young man. Prayers going out to his family in this very difficult and sad time.

The first time I met Bondoc was when I became his shadow in band. He was just a freshman but he picked up on reading drill fast. Every morning no matter how tired I was he woke me up with his laughter and jokes. I will cherish each moment we were two idiots, even the times you ignored my face time calls for your video games. Rest in Peace Matthew and may your laughter forever ring in our hearts.

Matthew and I exchange many conversations in middle school, as we were in band together. I’ll never forget how he made laugh and always put a smile to my face. He definitely lifted my spirit. My deepest condolences to his family and love ones. Rest In Heaven.

Ms. Llanes, Our deepest and sincerest sympathies to you and your family. We pray that God will comfort you, watch and guide you always. May Matthew rest in peace. Divine Mercy Catholic Church Staff


Kylie Ramos posted on 3/10/20

I never got to know you. But you marched next to my daughter Michaela Mabe in band. You are a band kid, and that made you family. The memories she holds dear are all filled with smiles and laughs. From her constantly hitting you with her flag because you too were always too close to each other, to your trip in Hawaii and joking about your short legs and keeping up with the rest of the crowd. Mr. and Mrs. Bondoc, I pray that in this time of deep sorrow, you find some ray of hope and find peace. With much love and many hugs, The Mabe and Ramos crew.


Braden posted on 3/10/20

My favorite memory of you has to be when you sang the solo at camp to “all of me” by John legend and all of us were screaming because you took over! You always made me laugh. My prayers are with your family.

My condolences go out to the family and friends of Matthew. He was an amazing person with a kind soul and heart. My favorite memory of him was going to Camp Longhorn with him many years and more specifically when he sung the mariachi songs in front of the whole camp.

My favorite memory of you was when we were learning a stand tune in summer band and both of us could not play the rhythm correctly. It was hilarious. I love you Bondoc. I really miss you
