Joseph "Doran" Matusick, 56, of Pittston, passed away Saturday, March 30, 2013, at his home.

Born in Avoca on Nov. 19, 1956, he was a son of Charles Olisewski and the late Mary Claire (Doran) Olisewski.

He was a former member of Sacred Heart of Jesus Church, Dupont. He was a 1975 graduate of Pittston Area High School.

Known as "Joe, the rocker," Joseph was the quintessential "rock-and-roller." He was a die-hard fan of the Rolling Stones, knowing everything there was to know about the group. He could answer any question about the Stones and thoroughly enjoyed rock music from a variety of artists.

In his youth, Joe was a tremendous athlete. He was an amateur boxer and played football. He loved the outdoors, played guitar and drew with great skill and talent. Joe was well-rounded, and his life was full. He will be missed dearly by those who knew and loved him.

In addition to his father, he is survived by his sister, Patricia Wilk, Avoca; brothers, Adam Olisewski, Springbrook, and Michael Mayewski, Drums; son, Jason Thomas, West Pittston; and several nieces, great-nieces and great-nephews.

A blessing service will be held Saturday at 11 a.m. at Kiesinger Funeral Services Inc., 255 McAlpine St., Duryea. Friends may call for visitation from 9 a.m. until time of service. Interment will be held at Ss. Peter and Paul Cemetery.
