Obituary of Mark A Mattoe

MARK ANDREW MATTOE Marky Mattoe, 56, lifelong resident of Raritan, passed away quietly at his home on Saturday, April 2, 2016. Born in Somerville, Mark was a self-taught musician who will be most remembered for his amazing natural drumming ability. He played with many bands in New Jersey and developed lasting relationships with his band members. Mark was the son of the late Elsie and Charles Mattoe. He is survived by his devoted sister, Charlene (Ron) Remillard of Argyle, NY; loving nephew, Jesse Kryscio of East Stroudsburg, PA; adoring nieces, Viktoria (Herb) Tennison of Chicago, IL; Katie (Adam) Stuckey, and grandniece, Lily Ana Stuckey of Saylorsburg, PA; loyal friend, Michele Torlish of Raritan and several generations of cousins. Marky had many friends and admirers who loved him for his gentle heart, kind smile, his quirky sense of humor, his love of life and impassioned music talent. Mark's summer home at Cossayuna Lake, NY, was and will be his ultimate resting place. He loved jitterbug bass fishing, swimming, soaking in the sun, gardening and cooking. He spent many summers at the lake caring for his mother where they enjoyed each other's company as well as the many neighbors they knew.
