The Matt Clapp Fund at the Hospice of East Texas Foundation was created in honor and memory of Matt Clapp. A cattle rancher and the Founder and Summer Camp Director of Rockin’ C Ranch, Matt had a deep love for all children. The Christian camp he founded gave him the opportunity to share the love of God and teach children to build strong character and work ethic.
Matt lived his life in service to God and others and showed true grit by his hard work and his 15-year battle with Parkinson’s disease.
The Matt Clapp Fund was created with a generous gift from Matt’s life-long friend and fellow classmate of the Robert E. Lee High School Class of 1969, John Muse. Additional contributions have been made by friends and family. The Fund is designated to help cover the cost of care at HomePlace. Additional contributions to the Matt Clapp Fund are welcome.
