Obituary for Michael Mattson

Michael Lee Mattson, better known as “Mick”, was born on September 26, 1959 in Rocky Ford, CO. He was raised on a cattle ranch on the plains of Eastern Colorado near Punkin Center. After graduating from Karval High School, he worked on the Lane Ranch with his Grandpa Johnson, a 22,000 acre cattle ranch south of Limon. He also worked on the Pring Ranch near Colorado Springs until 1986. He worked for John Deere until 1991, and then became a Fireman for the city of Colorado Springs until 1997. He and his wife bought 300 acres at the base of the Wet Mountains to build their dream home and raise their two children. He then obtained his real estate license and he and his wife worked as a team for Land Properties for many years. In 2003, he was hired at the Department of Corrections in the Wild Horse Program, where he planned to remain until retirement. He had many wonderful stories about inmates and staff from his years there, both comical and heart warming. Three of the inmates that worked for him crafted him crosses, both as a symbol of his faith and as an appreciation for being treated with respect. He handed out many New Testament Bibles from the Fellowship of Christian Cowboys, and he was always available for prayer and words of encouragement. He attended Vineyard Christian Fellowship, where he was also a volunteer at the youth group for over 5 years. Mick always felt closest to God on the back of a horse, and he will always be remembered for his incredible sense of humor and witty one-liners. He received his ultimate healing and left this world on June 5, 2018 with his family at his side. He will be sorely missed by his wife of 29 years, Linda Mattson, and his beautiful children, Michael Tyler Mattson and Lyndsey Nicole Shotts (wife of Russell Shotts) of Florence, CO. He is survived by his loving parents Frances and Delbert Mattson of Punkin Center, brothers Monty and Marty Mattson of Punkin Center, and daughters Brianne and Jamie Mattson of Elizabeth, CO.
