Carl Mattson Obituary, Death – On November 29, 2022, Carl “Buddy” Mattson, who was 72 years old at the time, was taken away from his family and friends in an unexpected manner in the Marshfield home that he shared with his wife Vicki. Buddy was born in Weymouth and received all of his education there; in 1971, he graduated from Weymouth Vocational High School. After graduating from high school, he began his career at Pneumatic Scale in Quincy, where he was employed for more than 20 years before retiring from Russ Electric in Hingham after working there for a considerable amount of time. Bud was a diligent worker who enjoyed maintaining a busy schedule.
As a result, in addition to his careers, he enjoyed working at various Home Depots (in the Quincy, Rockland, and Plymouth locations), where he utilized his extensive “DIY” knowledge to assist customers in fixing anything they required assistance with. He claimed that he was a “Jack of all trades, but a Master of none” during his entire life. In 1973, Buddy wed Vicki, the woman he cherished the most and who was also his closest friend. They had been together continuously ever since they first met when they were 15 years old. In the approaching year, they would have celebrated their golden wedding anniversary for the 50th time.
After getting married to Vicki, the couple began their family in Brockton and shortly after moved to Marshfield, where they had accumulated a great deal of happy memories together over the years. Buddy and Vicki never missed an opportunity for an adventure in their life, whether it was going camping in Maine or taking the whole family to Disney World. As a result, their lives were rich and complete. Buddy was always bragging (whether it was true or not) that he had won more than Vicki and had thus been able to walk away with money in his pocket whenever the two of them were spotted together in one of the many casinos they frequented.
Buddy was a one-of-a-kind individual due to the fact that he frequently declared that he had “never had a bad day” and that he would always be smiling while engaging with others and trying to make their lives better. Because of his upbeat and positive demeanor, his loved ones and friends will grievously miss him after his passing. He has been fighting trachea cancer courageously and in silence for the past year and a half. Because of his optimistic outlook, he attacked it head-on and was making progress despite the challenge. In his dying days, he enjoyed good health and a carefree disposition.
Buddy’s parents, Russell G. and Elsa K. (Carlson) Mattson, as well as his brother, Edward Mattson, passed away before he was born. His children, Kristin Robinson and her husband Bill of Rockland, and Jeffrey Mattson of Arizona, as well as his grandchildren Billy, Vivian, and Alanah, as well as his siblings Paul Mattson and his partner Brett and Chuck Mattson and his wife Donna, are among those who are left behind after his passing. Additionally, Bud is survived by a large number of devoted nieces and nephews.
