Tributes for

Matoso, Bob

Bob Matoso, 72, passed peacefully Saturday, February 16, 2013 with his family at his side.
Bob leaves behind his loving wife of 53 years, Diane (Dee) Matoso. His children Gary, David, Linda and Michael; their spouses Chantal, Mary, Matt and Kelly; Grandchildren Caitlyn, Louise, Jack, Tim, Stella, Ryan, Abigail, Brody and Coloman.
Bob worked as a draftsman for over 50 years. A perfectionist, he took great pride in his drawings. He was lucky enough to love what he did, as well as, the people he did it with.
Bob was an amazing husband, father and coach who taught us the value of hard work and that there was a right way to do everything. He also passed on his passion for baseball. We are forever grateful to you Dad.
Simply known as G-Pa, he was an amazing grandfather who shared a special relationship with ALL his grandchildren. He loved them so much. They could always count on him to be at a game or special event.
Bob looked forward to one week a year more then any other, "Pine Grove week." G-Pa was happiest when surrounded by family and the simple things in life. In hindsight, that's all he ever needed.
On a beautiful day, look up and think of Bob, remembering, "It's a great day to play two!"
