    Dear Matisz Family,

    We were shocked to hear of Bob’s passing.

    We were school mates of Bob’s in Lethbridge. Way, way back, Denise and Bob were once “going steady” – which seemed like forever in those days.

    Our condolences to your family at this difficult time. We will say some prayers for Bob.

    God Bless You

    Grant and Denise

  4. Mrs.Matisz, Jason, Cheryl and extendend family. I was very sad to hear the news about Mr.Matisz. He was almost like a second Dad to me through high school. He was a salt of the earth Man and always ready help in anyway he could. He made me feel welcome and he made me feel like he was my friend. I will always have very fond memories of our trips to Lethbridge. Mr. Matisz was a great Man.

    Please accept our deepest condolences.

    Rick and Jennie Raposo
