In Loving Memory of David Peter Mattovich who passed Thursday, December 11, 2008. He was born in Oakland, California on March 4, 1951. He was survived by his wife D.B. of 33 years, twin daughters Rachel and Renee, mother Frances, sister Judy and niece Corrie. A Celebration of Life Service and potluck is planned for Monday, December 15, 2008 from 4:00-7:00 p.m. at the Home-Economics building at the Tri-County Fairgrounds in Bishop, CA. From the beginning of his life to the end, he was a giver to the community around him. As a young man he was an Eagle Scout, an alter boy and wore many different hats and uniforms. He was a hard working man with tremendous zeal for life. There was never a moment when his hands were empty or not busy helping someone. He was a thoughtful, generous, comical, and socially magnetic fun spirit, whom always lit up a room. David was a loving husband, a doting father, and a friend to all, even strangers. David loved living in the Eastern Sierra and was an avid outdoorsman. He was deeply involved in the Advocates for Access to Public Lands (AAPL). He was a member of the Sneakers Motorcycle Club and participated in numerous motorcycle races. He also volunteered in events so others could enjoy the same enthusiasm he had for the sport. He coached his daughters in softball and was also a volunteer for the middle school ski program and continuously shared his passion for the outdoors and all sports. David was very proud of his twin daughters who are both attending colleges in Southern California. A trust fund is being set up through his CalTrans family, from whom he loved and was employed for over 20 years. He will be missed, but his spirit will always remain in the Eastern Sierra, and in the hearts of the lives he touched.
