Longtime Cleveland Sports Writer Matt Loede ended his two-year battle with cancer, passing away at the young age of 46. Shanna Loede, wife of the late Matt, had the following words to say following the tragic news of Matt's passing: " Matt's two plus year battle with cancer has come to an end and today he is with the Lord. This early morning's cardiac arrest led to a lack of oxygen to his brain for approximately 50 minutes that resulted in brain damage, bleeding in his lungs, and kidney shut down. He was surrounded by love as he passed. He was funny, sweet, generous, loyal, faith filled and he had a talent for bringing people together. He made my life beautiful. He was and will always be the love of my life. Please keep his parents, brothers, and our families and friends in your prayers. "
