Melvyn Mattsson Obituary
Melvyn Mattsson

AGE: 75 • Leonardo

Melvyn Mattsson, 75, died Saturday, May 27, 2017 at Monmouth Medical Center in Long Branch, NJ following a brief illness.

He leaves his wife of 47 years, Marion (Giordano) Mattsson; his son, John Anthony Mattsson; his daughter, Melissa Rose Mattsson Weingartner and her husband Eric Weingartner; and his two grandchildren; Brianna and Christopher Bloom.

Born and raised in Staten Island, he moved to Middletown, NJ where he lived for the past 31 years.

He was passionate about his position of Chief Engineer, working on tugboats on the Hudson River for over 30 years, retiring only last month. Although he worked on several vessels, his favorite was The Maryland, a tug he worked on for over 10 years.

The only thing he was more passionate about was the love he had for his family and friends. His children and grandchildren were the light of his life. Anyone who knew him knew what a genuinely kind and generous person he was to everyone, frequently helping friends in need of anything.

A memorial service will be held Sunday, June 11 2017 from 12pm - 2pm at John F. Pfleger Funeral Home in Middletown, NJ. All who loved and knew him are welcome to attend.
