I had the privilege of growing up in the neighborhood where the Mattice’s lived. This family played an integral part in our lives growing up. This was a time when all the adults hung out with each other and all the children played with their friends - their neighbors. Kickball, hide and seek were just a few of the things we enjoyed almost daily. It was a time when you trusted your neighbor and made sure you were home by the time the streetlights came on. One of my fondest memories was being allowed to be part of a group that helped put new shingles on Ford’s roof. Then it was an amazing opportunity to be a big kid and do something you never expected to do. Neighbor helping neighbor and commitment to community were commonplace. My guess is the commitment displayed by many of the parents who served with the local volunteer fire department / rescue squad impacted my career choice. Life is to be lived. Experiences build character. I truly miss this time. My condolences for your loss. Henry was a great role model. Thanks for the memories.

My condolences to the family of Mr. Mattice. I have great memories of times at RD 2 firehouse and the bowling league. Mr. Mattice, like all those at the firehouse were like an extra set of parents to help raise us and teach us about being good people. I know my parents, Bob and Ki Hallenbeck, enjoyed their friendship with Mr. Mattice.

Some of my fondest memories revolve around Uncle Ford and Aunt Mary. My father, Francis Mattice (nickname; Heinie) brought me to see them ( late 50’s or early 60’s). Aunt Mary would take me out to pick strawberries and then made the best strawberry shortcake! As a kid this was great!. I don,t know where I stand in the family tree but wanted to offer my condolences to you. May he Rest In Peace. John M. Mattice
