Gary, a 10-year resident of Colville, loved the natural beauty of the area and all that goes with it. In his spare time he enjoyed fishing, camping, and everything that had to do with the outdoors. He also enjoyed racing go-carts, working on cars and most importantly, spending time with his family.
He was a wonderful man and a great father.
He is survived by his brothers David, George, Bill, Ray, Danny, and Joseph, all of Colville; sister Sandy Parchen, Reno NV; son, Nick Mattozzi of Colville; daughters, Jamie Mattozzi, Spokane; Marissa Miller, Taylorsville City, UT; and Cara Mattozzi, Moses Lake; father Lynn Daugherty of Colville, former wife Marcia Mattozzi, five grand children and numerous nieces and nephews.
Gary is preceded in death by his mother, Theresa Dougherty and his daughter, Ashley Mattozzi.
