Marvon Duane Mattingly, 70

Marvon Duane Mattingly, 70, went home to be with his Lord and Savior on November 20, 2018 in Petersburg, Alaska following a lengthy illness.

He was born July 23, 1948 in Nampa, Idaho to Dale and Laura Elaine Mattingly (nee: Holdaway).

At the age of 17, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and was trained as an aircraft mechanic on the Grumman A6 Intruder. He served two 13-month tours in Vietnam before being stationed at Yuma Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma, Arizona. He was honorably discharged in July 1969.

After serving his country, he moved back to Wayne County, Utah and worked with his father as a stone mason. In October 1968, he married his first wife, Corey Earl, with whom he shared two children. In 1974, he met and married Margaret Pittman, with whom he shared his life for 44 years.

In 1993, he and his family moved north to Alaska, living first in Juneau for a short time, followed by Fairbanks, and finally settling in Petersburg in 1999. In 2005, he and Margaret settled in Yuma, Arizona after wintering there for several years.

He enjoyed fishing and spending time with his family and was always tinkering with something mechanical. He dreamed of seeing Alaska again one day, and he was able to do just that the week prior to his death.

He was preceded in death by his sister Lynette Mattingly Fisher and his brothers Raymond and Walter Hugh Mattingly; and his parents Dale and Laura Elaine Mattingly (nee: Holdaway).

Survivors include his wife Margaret Mattingly (nee: Pittman), his daughters Dana (Larry) Anderson of Fairbanks, Alaska, Deana (Bill) Ceal of Castle Dale, Utah, and Darla Mattingly of Petersburg; his sons Martin Mattingly of Yuma, Arizona, and Darby (Nichole) Mattingly of Petersburg; his grandchildren Garritt and Shelby Anderson of Fairbanks, Alaska, and Kylie, Audrey, Liam, and Johanna Mattingly of Petersburg; his sister Tammy (John) Naylor of Farmington, Utah, and his brother Richard (Carolyn) Mattingly of Bicknell, Utah.

A celebration of life is planned for Sun., Dec. 2, 2018 at 6pm at Petersburg Bible Church, 916 Sandy Beach Rd., Petersburg.

A memorial will also take place this summer near Salt Lake City, Utah.
