Matthew “Mickey” Adam Main passed away peacefully at his home in Toronto on December 12, 2021 with the aid of Medical Assistance in Dying (M.A.i.D.). Matt was 46 years old. He was born with several congenital birth defects, including a heart defect known as Tetralogy of Fallot. Starting at the age of 8 months, Matt had a total of 46 surgeries and was managing 20 different physical conditions. He found solace and liberation in his decision to end his life when the suffering of physical pain began to outweigh the quality of his life. Matthew is survived by his mother Sharon Danley, father Roy Main, half-brother Adam (Sheila), and niece Sydney. He is also survived by loyal and supportive friends that he cared for deeply and will be joining his sister Andrea Samara Main who passed on December 18, 2012. Matthew was born on February 27, 1975, in Toronto. In addition to his wicked sense of humour, Matt loved many things like sports, film and music. He found particular enjoyment through his participation in both the VRC choir and his meditation group.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Matthew’s name to the Canadian Congenital Heart Alliance would be appreciated.
A celebration of life will be held on February 27th, 2022 via Zoom. If you would like to attend, please email [email protected] and you will receive an invitation. Any messages of condolence, pictures or stories that you would like to share would also be appreciated.
