Jim Matusz

September 23, 1963 - January 28, 2020

James “Jim” Matusz, age 56 of Rochester Hills, passed away January 28, 2020.

Those who were closest to Jim knew that he always lived his life to the fullest. He enjoyed time spent with family and friends as much as time spent alone, looking to relax and wind down from life’s busy days. Being a total “man’s man”, Jim loved to fish and hunt. His excitement over sports, and Fantasy Football, was contagious. He was a huge fan of Michigan State – GO GREEN! But more so, and most importantly, he was his daughter’s number one fan. Jim loved to share stories of Jessica and how proud he was. He was the happiest around her, with one of the luckiest days of his life being when he was able to experience Jessica and Matthew’s wedding. Although Jim made so many wonderful memories throughout his life, his absence will be felt as he will be missed beyond measure, especially by his loving family.

Jim was the loving father of Jessica (Matthew) McCloskey. Cherished son of Barbara and the late Arnold Matusz. Dear brother of Nancy (Steven) Karas, Arnold (Darlene) Matusz, David (Kim) Matusz and Bobbie (Greg) Mallory. Jim is also survived by many cousins, nieces and nephews.
