Judge Richard P. Matsch

I’m of the opinion that my life belongs to the community. And as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die. For the harder I work, the more I live. Life is no brief candle for me; it is a sort of splendid torch which I’ve got hold of for a moment and want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.  George Bernard Shaw

  1. I had the privilege of having one of Judge Matsch’s children as a 6th grade student in my classroom. Getting to know him as a parent and exposing my students to his insights and passion for justice on field trips to his courtroom remain as great memories and a source of inspiration to me even today. Judge Matsch made our world a safer, better place, and he will be missed.

  2. I knew Judge Matsch when he was just a lawyer and I had the honor of babysitting his two eldest children, Katherine and Dan. Katherine was my flower girl in my wedding. Wonderful memories of both the Judge and Mrs. Matsch. He would pick me up in his MG and it was a joy ride from there.
    He made me prove to him I could hold a baby correctly. Loved them both.
