Robert J. Matich

June 9, 1944 ~ March 1, 2019 (age 74)

Robert J. “Bob” Matich, 74, of Aliquippa, passed away peacefully on Friday, March 1, 2019, in Heritage Valley Beaver, surrounded by his loving family. Born June 9, 1944, in Rochester, a son of the late Ivan J. and Elizabeth McClain Matich, he was retired from J&L Steel, Tin Mill Dept. with 38 years of service. He was a member of St. Titus Catholic Church and the CFU Lodge. Bob was a loving husband, father, and Pappy. He was a hard worker who always provided for his family’s needs. He enjoyed taking his wife, Mary Jane, shopping and eating out every day. During the past year, when his wife became ill, his main concern was caring for her and visiting her every day at the Rehab Center. His pride and joy were his grandchildren, Demi “Princess”, Bobby “The Boss”, and Khloe “Klo Klo”. He loved taking Demi out to eat every week, watching Bobby play baseball, where he never missed his games, and watching Khloe cheer and do cartwheels. He was an avid sports fan, and his passion was the Aliquippa Quips Football Team, where he rarely missed a game in over 40 years. He loved socializing with friends at the MPI Club, Paris Grill, or Sheffield Café, talking about the “old times.” Surviving are his wife of 53 years, Mary Jane DeChellis Matich; two sons and daughters-in-law, Robert P. and Michele Matich, Jeffrey J. and Sherry Matich; three grandchildren, Demi, Bobby Jr. and Khloe; two sisters and a brother-in-law, Paula Deep, Doris and David Lolly; three brothers-in-law and two sisters-in-law, Tony and Shirley DeChellis, Louise and Tim McKim, and John DeChellis; one aunt, Patty Swink; many nieces, nephews and cousins. Friends will be received Monday from 2 to 8 p.m. in the BOHN-MATICH FUNERAL & CREMATION SERVICES, INC., 1099 Maplewood Ave., Ambridge, where a service will be held Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. followed by a mass of Christian burial at 11 a.m. in St. Titus Catholic Church. Interment will follow in Mt. Olivet Catholic Cemetery. Special thanks to his beloved and dedicated sister, Doris, and her husband, David Lolly, for all their care, concern and support they gave him throughout his difficult times.
