In Memory

Michael Mathison


Mike Mathison, aka Superman passed away on Sunday, June 12 surrounded by his family ending his 9 year battle with cancer. Born on August 28, 1957 in Boise, Idaho where he also resided much of his life. Together with his wife Kim they traveled the US from coast to coast . His love of travel and VW's took them to Europe many times and most recently with their daughter Haley for her college graduation. Driving the autobahn, touring several countries, making lots of new friends and enjoying the german cuisine was his perfect idea of a good time.
Mike lived life on his own terms and packed more into the past 9 years then most people do in their entire life time. He was part owner of RMF in Boise for the past twenty eight years. Mike made many friends while working on imported cars, doing custom metal fabrication, welding and installing data cabling around the valley.
Mike is survived by his wife Kim of 27 years, his daughter Haley, his 95 year old mother Alta and his two Springer spaniels Kubel and Kafer. He was preceded in death by his father Gilbert Mathison and his aunts Dorothy Wilson and Wanda Kinman.
The family extends their gratitude to his best buddy Kevin Moriarty, the 3rd floor ICU nursing staff @ St. Luke's Boise and doctors along with MSTI and his doctor Norman Zuckerman. We also wish to thank Sean McConnachie for being there side by side with the family over the past 12 days. Kim and Haley would also like to thank everyone at the Idaho Lottery, Kim's employer for their love and support through this difficult time.
A celebration of Mike's life and potluck will be held on Saturday, June 18 at Municipal park in Boise at 5 pm. We will also be taking one last car cruise to say goodbye . Bring your favorite stein, your VW's and memories of Mike to share with everyone .
Ich liebe dich my love and may you finally rest in peace. You will always remain in our hearts.

I lost track of Mike many years ago, but we were very good friends at one point after High School. I am very saddened to hear of his passing. I wish I would have seen this sooner as I would have made the trip for the memorial. Kim, my deepest simpathy to you and your daughter. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
