|Matlock, Jackie Charles, Sr.
Birth: 1947-11-14 in Annapolis, Maryland
|Jackie "Jack" Charles Matlock, Sr., 66, of Chaptico, MD died January 22, 2014, at MedStar St. Mary's Hospital in Leonardtown, MD. He was born November 14, 1947 in Annapolis, MD to the late Donald Cort Matlock and Imogene Leo Harris Matlock.|
On December 14, 1974, Jack married his beloved wife, Florence Matlock in Anne Arundel County, MD. Together they celebrated 39 years, "10" wonderful together as he lovingly joked.
He was employed for twenty-five years by Kay Management until his retirement in 2010 as a Chief Mechanical Engineer. He also worked in welding and as a tractor trailer driver.
He enjoyed helping others, and dedicated his life to doing just that. For the past twenty years, he spent time helping all his Amish friends with transportation to various places. He was a strong advocate for the American Red Cross, donating blood every six months and recruiting as many people as possible to do the same. He also believed in giving as an organ and tissue donor and was able to save many lives with his final wishes.
Family was Jack's first priority. He loved to spend any free time with his children and grandchildren. He created many fond memories for his children by taking them camping in Western Maryland and on vacations to Pigeon Forge, TN. His hobbies included deer hunting, small game hunting, fishing, crabbing, and visiting his family in Virginia. He also enjoyed cheering on the Dallas Cowboys.
In addition to his beloved wife, Jack is also survived by his children, Patricia Lacey (Raymond) of Chaptico, MD, Jackie Charles "Chuck" Matlock, Jr. (Veronica) of Mechanicsville, MD, and Donald Matlock (Susan) of Mechanicsville, MD; his brothers, Tom Matlock (Valerie) of Rose Hill, VA, Ed Matlock (Linda) of Pennington, VA, and Jeff Matlock (Charlotte) of Rose Hill, VA; his sister, Carol Deavers of Hanover, PA; and his grandchildren, Emily, Nathan, Daniel, Samantha, Alyssa, Bryanna, Rebecca, Jessica, and Matthew Gunnar.
A Memorial Service will be held at a later date.

|Mason, James Louis, Sr.
Birth: 1931-06-20 in Leonardtown, Maryland
|James L. Mason, Sr., 82 of Valley Lee, MD died on January 22, 2014 at MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital. Born June 20, 1931 in Leonardtown, MD, to the late Robert and Amanda Mason. |
James was preceded in death by his loving wife, Betty Elizabeth Mason, his children, James Louis Mason, Jr. (Junie), Joseph Mason, Charlotte and Charlene Mason, sister, Cecilia Brown and brother, Bernard Mason.
James is survived by his children, Patricia Green (Joe) of Clements, MD, Doris Mason and Darnell Mason (Lou) of Lexington Park, MD, Robert Mason of Valley Lee, MD, John Mason of Lexington Park, MD, Calvin Mason of Lexington Park, MD, Mary Medley (Robert, Sr. deceased) of Lexington Park, MD, Linda Mason of Valley Lee, MD, Daryl Mason (Tosha) of Great Mills, MD, Brian Mason (Tracy) of Indian Head, MD, Ray Mason, and Steve Mason (Ann) of Lexington Park, MD, and Tyrone Mason (Tess) of Lexington Park, MD.
James was a role model for his 45 grandchildren, 55 great-grandchildren, and 6 great-great grandchildren. James Louis was a devoted father and farmer working on Mulberry Fields for 22 years, and retired in 1999. James was an active parishioner at St. Georges Catholic Church until he could no longer perform as an usher due to his illness, but still continued to attend services.
James home was the spot for Sunday dinners, weekend gatherings, birthday parties, anything you can think of where he enjoyed just sitting back looking at the crowd until they played his song, “Anybody Wanna Dance With Me”, and then he would two step with anybody. James enjoyed being a father figure to not only his children but to his grandchildren.
James Louis enjoyed giving his grandchildren words of advice and encouragement like ”don’t take no wooden nickels.” Never saying goodbye, he would always say “toot-a-loo, you take care now.” You could always find him in his little room, heat on blast, just staring out the window looking up the road. Everyone knows how much he missed his wife. We know you are at peace now, Fly high in the sky with your best friend.
The family will receive friends on Tuesday, January 28, 2014 from 10:00AM to 11:00AM in St. George Catholic Church, Valley Lee, MD with a Mass of Christian burial at 11:00AM , with Monsignor Karl Chimiak officiating.
