  • Guestbook
Carl William Matteck, Jr. (C.W.) was born on December 2, 1931 in Taylor, Texas to Carl (Sr.) and Edna Zieschang Matteck. He departed for his heavenly home on November 16, 2022, while at his home in Lake Jackson, Texas.

C. W. spent his early years in Taylor and upon high school graduation, he attended Texas Lutheran College (now TLU) and later completed his education at The University of Texas at Austin. In June 1955, he married Lois Klattenhoff at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Pflugerville, Texas. They moved to Lake Jackson in 1956 for C.W. to pursue a career at Dow Chemical. Following his retirement, they enjoyed traveling, bird watching, fishing, gardening, and volunteering at His Love Counseling Services and the San Bernard and Brazoria National Wildlife Refuges. They were always active in their Christian faith. They celebrated 48 years together. Early Lake Jackson residents will remember Matteck's Food Market, owned by his parents, where the whole family worked.

C.W. loved music and it remained a large part of his life beginning at age four with piano lessons. He began to play for Worship Services at St. Paul Lutheran Church, Taylor, while in high school. He played clarinet in the Taylor High School band and served as drum major, drum major at Texas Lutheran College, and as a band member of the Texas Longhorn Band. He continued to play organ and piano for countless Worship Services, weddings, funerals, and choir accompaniments. He also accompanied his granddaughter for UIL Solo and Ensemble contest while she was in school.

C. W. (and Lois) are survived by two children, Carla (Ernest) Schreiber and Steven (Christi) Matteck and their three grandchildren, Claire (Robert) Boyer, Riley Matteck, and Eli Matteck. Also surviving are local cousins Cheryl Deal Evans and family, and many wonderful nieces, nephews, cousins, close friends and neighbors.

Preceding him in death are his wife, Lois, his parents, and his sister, Doris Matteck Wolff.

Serving as pallbearers are Robert Boyer, Joey Evans, Eli Matteck, Riley Matteck, Mark Prinz, and Mathew Schwettman. Honorary pallbearers are Ralph Corry, Don Peters, Charles Wolff, Chris Wolff, Greg Wolff, William Young and Morris Zieschang. Lesson Readers are Claire Schreiber Boyer and Kathy Peters Metzger.

The family would like to express thanks to many caregivers who helped us during his later years.

Sorry to hear the news of C.W. He lived two blocks away from me when he lived in Taylor. Also, I went to school and church with him and his sister Doris. He was a very talented person. Sympathy to all the family.

Oh our hearts are heavy. Your Mom and Dad brought such joy to so many . Your Dad's gift for music was shared not only at our wedding but at so many church services and brought happiness wherever he shared his talent. Their love of God was a leading example for many! Plus, they raised two extraordinary kiddos. We love you dearly and are so very sorry for your loss. What an exemplary life he lived. May God's peace surround you.
