ROCKPORT – Sergeant Matthew Lindahl, left this world, far too soon at age 44, following a heroic battle with cancer, Friday, April 26, 2019.

Matt grew up locally, graduating from Camden Rockport High School and later Paul Smith’s College in New York.

He had a love of nature from an early age that started with rock climbing. He loved sharing his love of the outdoors with his family, especially his children. Together they enjoyed camping and fishing trips, and Matt would often wake them up to see meteor showers or eclipses. He even took them to the breakwater park during a storm so they could experience the fury of the ocean. Matt’s number one priority in life was his family, they were his whole world.

When not spending time with his family, Matt served proudly on the Rockland Police Department. In the words of his fellow officers, Matt was ‘the greatest practical joker in the department, while still being a consummate professional and his actions on duty saved lives’….. ‘He didn’t want glory, applause or even a pat on the back. He was content just doing whatever it took to help people.’
Matt will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Matt is survived by his loving family which includes his wife, children, mother, siblings and other extended family members.

A private memorial service was held.

In lieu of flowers, an education fund has been established for his children. Gifts and donations may be sent to UBS Financial Services, Inc., P.O. Box 7350, Portland, ME 04412-9912, ATTN: Tammy Kelly. Please makes checks payable to UBS financial services and write Lindahl Education Fund in the memo line.
Arrangements are in the care of Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland.

I just learned of Matt's passing from the Paul Smith's alumni magazine. Matt was great friend and roommate to me while at Paul Smith's and he was a large part of many of the best memories I have of that period in my life. Even though we did not remain in close contact, I find that so many things in life make me think of him in smile. He was a great person, and I'm sure a wonderful husband and father. I'm so sorry to hear of his passing.

You will definitely be missed. I met Matt nearly 32 years ago! He was the older neighbor to me and was always there to hang out with the younger and I am sure more annoying kid from next door... but he was never mean or bullying. Instead, Matt acted like a big brother and showed me how to hide in the woods and not leave a trail or sneak up on someone through crunchy dry leaves and not be heard. I wish we stayed closer as we got older! However, about 19 years later we crossed paths again and I got to work with him and even tell him where to go every once in a awhile. He was a good friend, phenomenal police sgt and loving husband. Rest In Peace.
