Matt Hersl did the same thing every day. He walked out of the Wolman building and across the cross walk by city hall as he left for home.
He was a tragic victim of a careless driver and today he's being remembered as a man who loved his city.
A small tribute was set up in front of his home and at city hall as friends, family, and co-workers remembered a man who they say was caring to a fault.
Matt Hersl was a community activist in Little Italy where he lived and spent 28 years with the city of Baltimore working with community development.
He was also well known down at the ball park where he would go to Orioles games an hour early to snag foul balls that he mostly gave away to children.
Today his brother remembered Matt as a wonderful man, and the family is still trying to come to grips with his loss.
Services for Matt Hersl start Thursday with a viewing at Zannino funeral home on South Conkling Street from two until nine.
His funeral will be Friday at eleven a.m. At Saint Leo the great catholic church in Little Italy on Exeter Street.
