George E. Matsko

Waite & Son Funeral Homes

George E. Matsko, age 82, of Medina, Ohio, passed away on August 2, 2022. He was born to George and Helen (Starcovic) Matsko on February 13, 1940, in Philipsburg, Pennsylvania. George was a comptroller and an Army veteran. He was a devout member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, loved to golf, and enjoyed reading. Our father was always impeccably dressed and smelling of Polo (the green bottle) in his younger years but as time went on he chose to be dressed in a very nice golf shirt and a pair of shorts/athletic pants/lounging pants. To honor our father for the viewing a golf shirt and choice of pants/shorts is totally acceptable and if you want wear slippers that’s OK too.

George is survived by his wife of 54 years, Judith A. (Geyer) Matsko; his children, Joseph (Aprille) Matsko, Diana (Robert) Lowe, and Kristen (Michael) Robinson; his grandchildren, Kaymin (Kristen) and Avree Matsko, Barrett Matsko, Emily and Sarah Lowe, and LeighAnna and Beau Robinson; his nephews, Michael (Launa) and Marc (Melody) Mercurio, three great-nieces; and the Dolin family. George was preceded in death by his parents; his siblings, Mary Ann Mercurio, Barbara Matsko, and Helen Matsko; and his childhood friend, Lawrence Dolin.
