My deepest sympathies to the Matuszek family during your time of loss.
Mr. Matuszek was a great professor, loved his career, spoke affectionately about his family, genuinely cared about other people, challenged and encouraged me as a student and human being. I will never forget the lessons he taught me, conversations, his smile and love of life. He will be sorely missed.
Sorry for your loss. He was a great instructor at WCCC.

Steve was a 'man for other's' and a dedicated humble servant to his family,church & community. As sworn law enforcement officer, he lived the motto, 'to protect & serve'
Have many fond memories of our time at Warren County Prosecutor's Office, the Torch Run & yes as 'Santa Steve'... no one did it better. Please take comfort that despite his short time here, he left a lasting legacy.
