Matthys, Kenneth  
Kenneth Matthys November 22, 1935 - May 12, 2016 King City, OR - Kenneth Charles Matthys, longtime resident of Keizer and Salem passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family at his home in King City on May 12. Ken was born November 22, 1935 to Charles and Marguerite Matthys in Fargo, North Dakota. He grew up on the family farm southwest of Fargo and took over running the farm at age 19 when his father died. Ken and his wife Joyce moved to Keizer with their five children in 1963. He worked for Willamette Industries at the Albany Paper Mill for 30 years. However, he was best known by Keizer residents as a Marion County Deputy Sheriff. Ken joined the Marion County Sheriff Reserve Program in 1968 and in 1970 was authorized to operate a patrol vehicle alone, taking many assignments as a relief officer. He rose to the rank of Captain and under his guidance the Reserve Program grew to 79 officers. He often said that the Paper Mill paid the bills, but he got his job satisfaction from the 14 years he worked as a deputy. Ken was an avid fisherman and hunter. After retiring, his search for fish and game changed to a search for seashells, a hobby that took him to a number of foreign countries including the Philippine Islands, and earned him numerous awards at competitive shell shows. Ken is survived by his wife of 59 years, Joyce; his children David (Tarina) Matthys of Lake Oswego, OR; Chuck (Teresa) Matthys of Lakewood, CO; Rick (Shelly) Matthys of Portland, OR; Laura Matthys of Beaverton, OR; Susan (Dwayne) Janz of Boise, ID; eight grandchildren; one great-grandchild, and his sister Maxine Matthys of Fargo, ND. He was preceded in death by his parents Charles and Marguerite Matthys. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 23, 2016 at 11:00 AM at the Keizer Elks Lodge, Keizer, OR. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Oregon Shell Club Scholarship Fund for marine science graduate students at the University of Oregon and Oregon State University. Donations may be mailed to P.O. Box 1135, Mulino, OR 97042-1135.
