Matthew G. Masnik was a Captain in the Army when I first had the pleasure of serving under his command. He was a great organizer, manager of personnel, experienced delegator, and leader. We reconnected years later (he was a Colonel by then) and I could easily understand why he was promoted to Colonel. Still a fantastic leader, great sense of humor, and a true gentleman. Gone but never forgotten.
Matthew was a dear friend mentor and someone I generally looked up to and respected for the many years that I worked with him.
I kept in touch with Matthew after he left work even had an opportunity to visit him while he was in better health he made time to talk to me and even try to entertain me In the declined physical state he was in.
This was something I always appreciated about Matthew it's about Matthew a good sense of humor a deep and genuine care for the people in his life even if you were just a coworker is the worker you meant something to Matthew.
He was always willing to share his knowledge and experience to help you grow and learn to be a better person yourself.
I can say I am truly a better person better partner friend parent parent and human being for having been able to be fortunate enough to call Matthew my friend.
He will be truly missed and yet I yet I know he must be in a better place all that he did to improve this world while he was here certainly earned him Is a place in heaven.
My deepest condolences to his family I know how much he genuinely loved you they loved you his grandchildren especially meant the world to him.
Take pride in knowing the world is a better place because of Matthews being in it.
I am deeply sorry to hear about Matt passing. He had a very important role in how my life turned out. He will always have a special place in my heart.
Jean and family, I am so very sad to hear of Matt's passing far too early. I hired Matt at Digital in Hudson back in the 80's. He was a great guy, and really helped me tremendously. Rest in peace Matt, and love & prayers to you Jean and family.
Jean and family,
So sad that Matt passed away. I will always remember him as a true friend; kind, generous and caring. With passion for people and for doing good and a spark in his eyes and a big heart.
I will miss him.

Geen, I am heartbroken to hear about the loss of Matt he was a major player in my life at a crucial time in my life. He has, and always will have a special place in my heart. I am so sorry for your loss.
It is with a heavy heart, William and myself (Lesley) Butler and our children received word of Matthews passing. William worked under Matthew at the NM Intel site for many years. We as a family had the honor of meeting Matthew during his visits to NM. The first time I met Matthew was in Coasta Rica. I had the honor of going down their and helping with some community projects. Everyone was teasing him about his Mario Brothers pants. I stuck up for him because we had that in common 🙂.
Matthew and William kept in touch after layoffs and we were always so blessed by him sharing pictures of you and the family especially the grandchildren. Our prayers were always with Matthew and now with You and your family.
Matthew touched our lives in a very special way. We send our love and condolences.
William, Lesley, Christopher, Zoe, and Samuel, Butler

Dear Jean and Family, we are so sorry to learn of Matthew's passing. Our sincere condolences for your loss. He has been in my thoughts over the past several months after saying goodbye to him in January of this year. He was a fighter, RIP Matthew John and Stacey
Dear Jeanne and girls;
My heart aches so badly for you and all you have gone through. Matt was a rock of this neighborhood and I truly respected him. He meant a lot to us here on Jones Road. His wit was always on point and never had a bad day according to him. I loved chatting with him while he was collecting cans and bottles. He reminds me of my dad who died 25 years almost to the day of Matt. Bet he and Peter Mitchell took him golfing when he arrived.
May you find peace and comfort in the stories people tell you.

Jean and Family You know how much we loved and enjoyed Matt. He was so sincere. kind. truthful and funny. You two were one of the very best couples we have ever known. We know he must have imprinted that in your heart before he went to his heavenly reward. We shall never forget him either. There is only one Colonel Matt Masnik. God bless all of you and hopefully Matt will show signs he is still "around".

Jeannie..I am so sorry to learn of Matthew’s passing. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. Matt’s memory will live in your heart forever. 💔
Dear Jean and family..so sorry for your loss which is shared by all of us. Matt was larger than life and will leave a void in the lives of so many he loved and served. I will never forget coming home from work after Peter passed away and finding my barrels neatly back in place or the snow cleared from my driveway. I knew my angel Matt was behind it all. I know Peter will greet Matt with open arms and together they are at peace.
Jean & Family,
