Melvin Thomas Mathis Obituary
With deep regret we announce the passing of Melvin Thomas Mathis (Tom) on Saturday, January 5, 2019 who died at his home suddenly after a long struggle with kidney and heart disease. He was 67.
Mr. Mathis leaves behind his devoted wife of 23 years, Cathy Mathis; his loving daughters: Wendy Gaidau and husband Victor; Holly Gifford and her fiance John Ruyter. He was also the cherished brother of Janice Liposchak; loving uncle of Sheila Liposchak and Carlie Dua and her husband Sam. He was the adoring "POP-O" of his four grandchildren: Noah and Brayden McGuire; Maxwell and Esther Gifford. Mr. Mathis also leaves behind his two brothers-in-law: Bill and Dan Landers; a sister-in-law, Debbie Bardroff and her husband Dave; along with many dear cousins, friends, and family members.
Mr. Mathis was well known for his dedication to the Baltimore County School System for 42 years. Many coworkers, parents and students will remember him as a teacher, a guidance counselor, or a pupil personnel worker. He retired in 2014 with high hopes of spending a lot more time in Florida at his dream home. He will be missed by many.
Visitation will be held at Connelly Funeral Home in Essex from 1-2 p.m. on February 9, 2019.
