Matthew Poom Venincasa

September 21, 1989 –
 December 3, 2022


Matthew Poom Venincasa, 33, of Irving Texas, passed away on December 3, 2022.

Matthew was born on September 21, 1989, to Michael and Patrawan Venincasa in St. Louis, Missouri. Matthew is of Chinese descent on his mother’s side. His middle name Poom means majestic in the Thai language. Matthew was very proud of his middle name.

When he was six months old, Matthew and his family moved to Dallas, Texas. Both his sister Kathleen and brother David were born there. Sadly, his mother Patrawan passed away in January 2000 when he was 10 years old.

Matthew attended St. Monica Catholic School, The Highlands School, and The Vanguard School for elementary. He attended Dallas Academy during his middle school years and MacArthur High School in Irving for high school. He enjoyed music very much and was a violin student at The Suzuki Institute of Dallas for many years as well as playing in the MacArthur High School Orchestra. Matthew graduated from MacArthur High School in 2009. He went on to
study Computer Science at North Lake Community College. During his time at North Lake Community College, he worked for GameStop and Best Buy.

Matthew enjoyed anime and playing video games with his friend Christopher Hakala on the weekends. He was a fan of science fiction, especially Star Trek and Stargate. He often spent time with his cousins in Dallas. Matthew frequently visited his grandparents in Thailand, Kanok and Anothai Chokpichit. These trips allowed him to connect his family in Thailand.

Matthew was predeceased by his mother Patrawan Chokpichit Venincasa, his grandfather Kanok Chokpichit, and his grandmother Geraldine Venincasa. He is survived by his father Michael Venincasa, his stepmother Andrea Martinson, and his siblings Kathleen Gregorat, David Venincasa, and Mike Venincasa. He is also survived by his grandparents Louis Venincasa and Anothai Chokpichit as well as his aunts, uncles, and many cousins.

Services for Matthew Venincasa will be held on Friday, December 9, 2022, at St. Monica Catholic Church at 11:00am followed by a burial ceremony at Restland Memorial Park at 1pm.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to nonPareil Institute,, a non-profit, post-secondary program serving adults with autism spectrum disorder.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
