Matt Mezger. RIP.

September 16, 2012

I never met Matt Mezger. But he was a frequent voice in the comment section of this blog and a blogger himself.

I always looked forward to his unique take on politics and life, his clever word play and dark sense of humor.

I will miss hearing from him.

Condolences to his family.

Mezger, Matthew “Steve” 58 of North Chicago, IL passed away on Tuesday, July 10, 2012 at Vista East Medical Center in Waukegan. He was born April 3, 1954 in Corona, California and married Josephine Bena on January 7, 1978 at Holy Rosary Church in North Chicago. He retired from Civil Service at Great Lakes in 2001 after 15 years of employment. He was a member of Queen of Peace Church in North Chicago. He enjoyed music, playing the piano, guitar, spending time with his grandkids, watching sports, swimming, roller skating, watching old movies and loved a good political debate. He also enjoyed going to the beach with his children. He is survived by his wife Josephine, his children Jennifer (John) Price of North Chicago, Jackie (Brad) Moon of Sheboygan, WI, Julia (Josiah) Jones, Jr. of Waukegan, Jamie (Ben) Donovan of Milwaukee, Judy and Matthew Mezger, Jr. both of North Chicago. Grandchildren Hailey, Abby, Evan, Emily, Josiah, III, Joey, Julian and Matthew, III; one brother William (Sandra) Mezger of Linnwood, WA and two sisters Lillian Mezger of Gurnee and Cecilia Mezger of Middletown, CT. and one nephew Steve Mezger of Washington State.

To the readers of my dad’s blogs.   Thank you.  My dad was a strong believer in justice and the protection of the rights of the citizens of the United States.  I hope you all can appreciate his efforts to help solve this most heinous act in American history.  He put a lot of his time and effort into this research.  This was nothing taken lightly.  I say on behalf of the family, thank you, and may the truth find its way to the light.

    I am going to comment here, as I cannot seem to get into the link. To Matt’s family: you have my sincerest condolences. I have enjoyed reading Matt’s caustic and comedic comments in this blog and others. Your dad and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks to your dad for the humor which we all sorely need, and without which we could not soldier on. Gone too soon.

    From where he is, he can pray for the rest of us, and look out for us a bit. I believe in that. Condolences to his family.
