Back To Front Page


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...

Viewing at Newhard Funeral Home, Westville, IN, Friday, August 28, from 5-8 p.m.; then at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Otis, IN, from 9-10 a.m. Saturday, August 29, followed by Mass at 10 a.m., Father Kevin McCarthy officiating.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the family.
