Matthew L. Siebieda passed away on April 5, 2018. Matthew worked at Wheeling Steel and Ormet. He was a member of St. John Catholic Church, Disabled American Veterans, United Steel Workers and Bellaire Son's of Italy. Everyone knew Matthew as Matt, always full of life and love for his family, church and country.
He served in WW II with the U.S. Army's 3rd Infantry Division which saw combat in North Africa, Sicily, Italy, France, Germany and Austria for 531 consecutive days which included participating in six independent invasions in Europe. He was wounded twice and shrapnel which could not be removed, returned to join his troops in battle which earned him several medals including the Purple Heart. He was an avid story-teller of his life as a soldier to help keep alive the memory of his fellow soldiers and to remind all the sacrifices made by many. You would never see Matt without his army cap which he wore proudly.
To honor his life the family wishes memorial contributions be made to the Wounded Warriors Project. We thank you in advance for all your support during this difficult time.
