Dr. Matthew Louis Rounseville
June 2, 1941 - October 3, 2023
Dr. Matthew L. Rounseville, DO, a longtime Albuquerque physician, was born June 2,1941 and was called home Tuesday, October 3, 2023. Matthew practiced medicine for over 40 years in Albuquerque, New Mexico, mostly in the north valley where he had a large practice and would treat almost anyone. He never took appointments and always said “you don’t get sick by appointments”. He was always available to anyone who needed him. Matthew will be lovingly remembered for his love of animals, especially his horses and cats. He served on
the New Mexico Horsemen’s Association and the New Mexico State Livestock Board for
over 25 years. He was the track doctor in the Jocks room, to many of the horsemen, in his office and on the backside. He enjoyed raising and racing thoroughbred horses and actively participated in their care.
Matthew was preceded in death by his parents, William and Victoria Rounseville;
his aunt, Edith Carellas and by his stepson, Kenneth Moore. He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Frenda; daughter, Rene Romero (Albert); son, Will Rounseville (Tammy); stepdaughter Kristi Baca (Manuel); 9 grandchildren; 1 great- grandson and 1 on the way.
He was born and raised in Santa Fe, NM. He asked that all the people he loved and cared for remember him for his service to patients, friends and family. He truly loved being a physician.
As per his request there will be no services and the family kindly asks, in lieu of flowers, please make a memorial contribution to the Alzheimer’s Foundation or a charity of your choice.
