Scott W. Matteson, Sr.

Scott William Matteson, Sr. passed away in his home on Monday, November 5th, 2018. He was surrounded by his loving family and will always be remembered for being the great son, brother, father, uncle, grandfather, husband, and friend that he was. He now gets to rest with his father, mother, aunt and uncle.

He is best remembered for his time spent in the men’s senior baseball league; he played for over 20 years across multiple teams and made countless lifelong friends along the way. He was a member of the Rotary Club of Western Shawnee and loved being able to contribute back to his community in any capacity he was able to. If he wasn’t on the baseball field, tending to his property, or smoking some of the most delicious meat around then he could be found at one of his grandchildren’s events cheering them on and supporting them in the very special way only he could.

He is survived by his wife, Terrie Johnson; his daughter Jennifer Schmidt and her husband Stephen and their son Wyatt; his son Scott Matteson and his wife Megan and their twin son and daughter; his son Brandon Johnson and his fiancé Carey and their children Aubrey, Evan, Allen, and Alexander; his son Alan Johnson and his wife Sarah and their children Gavin and Lyla; his brother Brian Matteson and his children Mark and Maggie; his stepmother Margot Matteson; his 4 dogs, 3 cats, 2 bunnies and numerous chickens.

    My Brother in law and friend will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with his family. My heart goes out to all; the unexpected leaves so many unanswered questions. As empty as we may feel and want him still here with us; there is comfort knowing Scott is with loved ones and not alone. We have added another angel to watch over all of us.

    Love and prayers

  2. Michael Scott Says:

    I worked with Scott for 12 years at Associates Solutions, and then High Touch Technologies. He is **the** reason I finally took the job. My life would look very different if it wasn’t for Scott. I will deeply miss his stories, his leadership, his personality and his radio voice. I am so incredibly sorry for your loss as Scott was a really great friend and colleague. He was incredibly devoted to his other roles outside of his work and he will be missed dearly by all.

  3. Amy Foster Says:

    Thank you for being a friend and compassionate leader to me and all of us here at the office. I can’t imagine a decent replacement for you! May you rest in peace, always.

  4. William Pat Johnson Says:

    Wow, my thoughts and prayers are of you and yours

  5. Vic Swyden Says:

    Tremendous shock and loss of one of the nicest guys I’ve ever known. So many years of baseball and good times. My heart goes out to Scott’s family for a loss they’ve suffered way to soon. Take care brother and keep rocking that curve ball when you meet up with the MSBL guys who are waiting to welcome you home.

  6. Leslie Krekovich Says:

    I gained a whole new family the day you hired me and don’t know what I would do without them right now. We all know what you would be telling me right now if you could. I will never forget all the support you gave me over the past 10 years.

  7. Leslie Krekovich Says:

    Scott gave me a whole new family the day he hired me. I dont know what I would do without them right now. He backed me up when I wouldn’t have even backed me up. I know he would be telling me to shut the heck up right about now, and well we know what I would be telling him.

  8. Vicki & Madison Fairfield Says:

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  9. Marc Flowers Says:

    Over the last several years Scott has been an escape valve for me. When a break was needed from the many pressures in a busy work environment, Scott was always there to either tell a good baseball story or to listen to the many I had to tell about my grandson’s playing. He was a great leader and always kept his eye on the future. We will miss his weekly staff meetings and his ofttimes bad attempts at humor during them. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

  10. Matt Winship Says:

    Scott has been my go to guy when I needed to vent about something usually personal, but work related every now again. He had an open door policy, where you where always welcome to pop in and start talking. I know there are a few things I told only him, that are now with him heaven.

  11. Wesley Fielder Says:

    Scott was a tremendous competitor and a good friend. My deepest condolence go out to his family and loved ones.

  12. scott d russell Says:

    I am beyond devastated by this shocking news. Scott was perhaps the most brilliant, compassionate and genuinely humorous gentleman I’ve ever known. He was one of the few people on this planet that I was comfortable with in sharing my innermost thoughts, perhaps as much as I do with my wife, Peg.
    It would be virtually impossible for me to list the numerous times that Scott assisted me with his astounding knowledge, expertise and advice. Scott’s passing literally leaves a huge void in my life.
    Scott truly loved his family and his country. Godspeed and God bless. Scott D. Russell

  13. Bill McDonald Says:

    To Scott – Thank you for being a part of our Baseball Family at Shawnee Mission South – Scott was a true fan of South Baseball and was very proud of his contribution to the success his teams in 1974 and 75 enjoyed – My heart goes out to his family as he will be missed as I too will miss seeing Scott at South Baseball events and just talking to him about how life was going for him – He was an upbeat happy person to be around and I was blessed to have been his Coach and better yet a friend— Bill McDonald

  14. Joe Martin Says:

    My prayers are with Scott and his family. I work with the American Heart Association and will contribute to their mission in Scott’s name.

  15. Nick & Abbie Enlow Says:

    Much love and condolences to a wonderful family. May you all surround each other during this difficult time. You all are in our prayers.

  16. Howard Gamber Says:

    Scott, I am going to miss you. I am thankful to have played ten years of baseball against you in the KCMSBL. Your encouragement to me while I am serving in Haiti, is etched in my mind and Heart that I will never forget you. My days and weeks ahead of me will be dedicated to pray for your family in their time of mourning the loss of such a wonderful member of the family.

  17. Chuck Long Says:

    So sorry to lose Matty from this world. My condolences go out to his family. Scott was one of the nicest, positive and most supportive persons I’ve ever had the pleasure to know.

  18. Chris Reaves Says:

    The word that comes to mind when I think of Scott is compassionate. His genuine support of friends and family during birthdays, anniversaries and even tragedies was incredibly sincere and thoughtful. He was always so gracious and genuine. Scott was a legend in our Mens Senior Baseball League and I was proud to play for him these last 4 years. There is a huge gap in my life without him here. He was truly a great man and I am better for having known him. I rejoice knowing he is finally able to see his loved ones again that he so often mentioned how much he missed here on earth. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cant heal. My deepest sympathy and prayers to his family.
