Matt Howson

1962 - 2014 PITTSFIELD Matt Howson, 52, of Glastonbury, Conn., was called to rest on Sunday, Feb. 23, 2014, after a long, courageous battle with cancer and heart disease. Matt was born in Pittsfield on Jan. 14, 1962. He was the youngest child of Edward and Catherine Howson. He had been employed by The Hartford for the past 30 years and, most recently, as Director of Procurement. During his life, Matt had many accomplishments. He earned the rank of Eagle Scout, an award of which he was very proud. He obtained his Bachelors and Masters Degrees from the University of Hartford where he met his wife Jackie. Together, they shared their life of 26 years, raising their 2 children, Kevin and Melissa, who were the light of their Dad's life. Matt enjoyed traveling, being outdoors, walking the family's dogs, but most of all, enjoyed the many activities of his family. Whether it was cheering on his daughter, Melissa, playing soccer, basketball, softball, field hockey, or singing in the Glastonbury high school choir, to guiding his son, Kevin, through Boy Scouts and watching his many accomplishments on stage, he never missed an event. Not even when it meant arriving in a wheel chair. He was a very devoted husband and family man who will be greatly missed. Matt is survived by his wife Jackie, and their 2 children, Kevin and Melissa; his mother, Catherine Howson of Pittsfield; his sister and best friend, Monica Fowler and her husband, Scott, of Granby, Conn.; his brother, Mark Howson and wife, Jill, of Linwood, N.J., and many brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews. Matt was predeceased by his father, Edward C. Howson, of Pittsfield. FUNERAL NOTICE: Calling hours will be Friday, Feb. 28th, from 5 to 8 p.m., at Mulryan Funeral Home, 725 Hebron Avenue Glastonbury.
