    Scott Mattson

    August 23, 1982 - February 25, 2008

Scott had a gift and a passion for playing hockey and became an above average hockey player. On more than one occasion, Scott was told he had “Magic Hands”. During his youth, Scott was fortunate enough to have played in Finland and on the Olympic ice in Lake Placid, New York. A few of the teams Scott was very proud to be part of were, The South Shore Kings, The Baystate Sharks, and the Jr. Bruins. Scott continued playing hockey throughout high school with The Quincy High Presidents.

In 2004 Scott had surgery on his shoulder to correct an injury caused by his years of playing hockey. After surgery Scott was put on prescription pain medication. Unfortunately, like many patients, Scott found himself addicted. The addiction escalated and Scott was left to fight the most difficult battle of his life. He fought long and hard but on that February morning, through years of battling with the demon, drugs took Scott away from us. We are sharing Scott’s story so hopefully you will realize the horrible effects prescription drugs can cause.

In Loving Memory of
Scott P. Mattson
“Scotty”
August 23, 1982 – February 25, 2008

You can shed tears that he is gone
or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes
and pray he will come back,
or you can open your eyes
and see all he has left.
Your heart can be empty
because you cannot see him,
or it can be full of the love
you shared with him.
You can remember only that he is gone,
or you can cherish his memory
and let it live on!

We Love, Miss, and Remember you always,
Love, Ma, Roger, Kyle, Nana and Family.
