About Sgt. Fenton:

Lost to us on May 5, 2006 Sgt. Matthew J Fenton was a larger than life figure to those who were blessed to know him. Fatally injured while conducting combat operations in Iraq, Sgt. Fenton’s service to our Country shall not be forgotten. The twenty-four year old Little Ferry resident is a symbol of hope and valor within our community and this 5K Run/Walk is only a small token of our appreciation for him and the uniform that he wore.

At his funeral, Sgt. Fenton was made an honorary Little Ferry Police Officer, the job in which he was to hold upon his return to Little Ferry.

Sgt. Fenton was with the Forces Reserve’s Inspector and Instructor Staff, 1st Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division Fort Devens, Massachusetts.
