Obituary

Jeff Matz passed away on January 29, 2022, at the age of 63, surrounded by his family.  Jeff met his high school sweetheart and love of his life, Linda (Manno), at the age of 17.  After graduating from Slippery Rock University, he married Linda on October 4, 1980, and started their journey together.  They went on to have 2 children and created a beautiful family and life together.  Jeff was an avid lover of the outdoors, and you could find him in the woods from the months of October though December hunting for whitetail deer.  He also loved the game of golf and was a member of the Bear Ryan Golf League at Moon Golf Club.  During the summer months, Jeff enjoyed spending time in the garage getting his cars cleaned and waxed and took pride in keeping his cars in the most pristine condition.  After the cars were cleaned, Jeff loved "taking a ride" with Linda to the Rivers Casino where he tested his luck and had been known to hit a jackpot or two.  He liked spending his winnings with Linda and enjoying a fancy steak dinner downtown.  Jeff took the upmost joy in his family and was so proud of his two children,, Jaclyn (Jeffrey) Berthney and Nicolas (Danelle) Matz and grandchildren, Micah, Marco, Gianna and Lyla,  He also had an unbreakable bond with his 14-year-old dog, Harley.  He was the brother of Judy Krinks, Jane Matz, and James (Leslie) Matz.  In 2018, Jeff retired from Fed Ex as a manager in the IT department.  The last few years of his life, Jeff enjoyed his daily 4-mile walks and just spending time with his high school sweetheart,
