Scott Gerard Matthys, Westville, IN, passed away peacefully in his sleep,
age 45 years, on August 21, 2015, in Myrtle Beach, SC.
Born January 28, 1970, in Valparaiso, IN, to Robert G. and Sandra S. Matthys.
Scott is survived by his parents; his greatest pride, Stephanie Marie
Matthys (daughter); sister, Angie (Kriss) Noel; brother, Rick (Debbie)
Matthys; nephews Jonah and Jacob Noel and Hayden Matthys; nieces Rachel Noel
and Morgan Matthys; many aunts, uncles and numerous cousins.
Preceded in death by Grandparents Achiel and Susanna Matthys, Garland and
Valette Worman; cousins Michael McKenzie and Andrew Matthys.
As a young child, Scott loved farming, was a dedicated hard worker; loved
driving the tractors and combine plus caring for animals. Around six years
of age, he knew he wanted to be a truck driver. This past year, he was proud
to be buying his own semi tractor; traveled through nearly all 48 states and
probably had friends in all 48 states! Many would say "Scott had a heart of
gold and would give the shirt off his back to anyone".
He was such a friendly, caring and funny guy who will be forever missed.
God-speed Dear Son...
