Mathew M. Pendo Sr. Obituary
April 3, 1931 - June 4, 2016 Mathew M. Pendo, our dear sweet husband, father and Grampy, passed away peacefully on June 4, 2016. Matt was a native of Los Angeles, attended Cathedral High School and received his Bachelor of Science degree in 1953 from Loyola University, where he was a four-year varsity baseball letterman and team captain. Matt served our country as a captain in the United States Air Force. He received his general engineer's contractor license in 1958 and operated his own construction company. While Matt had many lifetime accomplishments in leadership roles, none matches the pride in his family. Matt and his wife, Ann Scott Pendo, were married for nearly 60 years. Together, they raised six children on the values of family, education, hard work and love. Matt is survived by his wife Ann, daughters Dr. Anne Marie (Duncan Edwards), Cathy (Si White), Liz (Jim Jackson), Susie (Robin Wachsner), and son Mathew (Lisa Pendo). He was preceded in death by his son Michael Pendo. Matt enjoyed cooking with a passion and cherished his friends. Perhaps our fondest life memories are times spent around the dinner table with delicious food, vintage wine, friends and family. He participated extensively in the lives of his children and his 15 treasured grandchildren, Willi, Robbie, KJ, Bryce, Annie, Mathew, Stephanie, Cristina, Nicole, Buck, Adam, Lauren, Matt, Kevin and Jeffrey. He made us laugh; told great stories; was loved and will be missed by all. A memorial mass and celebration of Matt's life will be held on Friday June 17 at 10:30 AM at St. Philip the Apostle Parish in Pasadena. Our thanks to his many wonderful doctors and nurses. In lieu of flowers the family requests a donation to Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at USC, c/o Ray Matthews MD, 1510 San Pablo St. Suite 322, Los Angeles CA 90033. Cabot & Sons, Pasadena Directors.
