John Carl Matolek, 60, of Virginia Beach, Virginia, passed away April 6, 2022. He is survived by his niece, April Romero (Steven), great nephew, Jayden Schwabenbauer, and great niece, Payton Romero. He is preceded in death by his mother, Catherine Matolek (Blake), father, James C Matolek Sr, brother, James C Matolek Jr, and sister, Barbara Bishop.
John was born on October 1, 1961, in Norfolk, Virginia to James C Matolek Sr. and Catherine Blake Matolek. He graduated from Princess Anne High School in 1980 and spent many years as an EMT helping the communities where he resided. He later used these skills to provide loving care to his father.
John will always be remembered as a loving son, brother, uncle, and friend. When he wasn’t rooting for the Green Bay Packers, you could find him going for a drive with the windows down and feeling the breeze on his face. He loved a good home-cooked meal and some Diet Coke, but his next favorite meal was a good hamburger from McDonalds. If you knew him in his younger years, you would know the mischievous antics he and his brother, Jimmy, would get into. There are many memories that involve loud music and ballpoint pens. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends, who will find comfort in these memories.Send Flowers
