Obituary for Howard R. Mattson

Howard Mattson of Atlas, Wisconsin, passed away peacefully in his home on July 4, 2007, surrounded by his family. Howard waged a tenacious battle against cancer, but succumbed at age 73. Howard was born in Bone Lake Township, Wisconsin, on September 16th, 1933, to Freeman and Elizabeth (Schlemmer) Mattson. He married Marjorie Olson April 21, 1956, and together they had four children, Joyce, Jim, Jon and Jayne. After graduating from Luck High School, Howard served in the Army, where he worked as a photo-mapper in Japan. Upon returning from service and marrying Marjorie, Howard worked at various jobs including driving truck and school bus before settling on a career in road construction. Howard retired in 1996 after 25 years of service. He also served many years as the treasurer for the Town of Laketown. A hard worker and very mechanical, Howard could fix anything. In addition to his aptitude for machines, he dabbled with inventions and woodworking. While an avid hunter, trapper, and fisherman in his early years, during retirement he found joy in gardening, his family, and of coarse, his dogs. He was preceded in death by his father, Freeman Mattson and his mother, Elizabeth Mattson. He is survived by his wife of 51 years, Marjorie Mattson; daughters, Joyce Mattson (Dennis Wille) of Owatonna, MN, and Jayne (Steve) Malueg of West Concord, MN; his sons, Jim (Debra) Mattson of Frederic, WI, and Jon Mattson (friend Rebecca Kes) of Luck, WI; and grandchildren, Russel (Monica) Mattson, Melisa (Roberto) Rodriguez, Adam Mattson, Christa and Maren Wille, Shyyanne Mattson and Carlee Malueg. A memorial service will be held Monday, July 9th, at 2:00 PM at the Atlas United Methodist Church. Rowe Funeral Home of Luck, Wisconsin, was entrusted with arrangements.
