Mathew Luce

Jan. 7, 1991 — Aug. 30, 2013

Mathew “Math” Gary Luce was born Jan. 7, 1991, in Santa Rosa, Calif., and died Aug. 30, 2013, in Santa Rosa of natural causes. He grew up in Santa Rosa, Terra Linda and Fair Play, Calif., graduating from Placerville’s Union Mine High School in 2009. He was on the tennis, wrestling and football teams.

Mathew was a light in the world to all who knew him. He had a servant’s heart and was quick to reach out to those in need — young and old alike. He demonstrated a depth of character that many grown men are still working to develop. He enjoyed entertaining us and making us laugh. He had a talent for making people feel loved and important. He was proud of his position as Sandwich Specialist at Ike’s Place. He loved his entire family and looked forward to the day he would have one of his own. His sudden passing breaks our hearts.

Mathew is survived by his mother, Christie Clary; father,Gary Luce (Irene); sisters, Alanna Wheatley (Patrick), Shannon Luce and Darci Luce; grandmother, Alice Klare Clary; nieces and nephew, Avelynn Wheatley and Layla and Lauro Moura; his cousin/brother, Xavier Macy; and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Frank George Luce, Rosanna and Richard Smith and Paul Dennis Clary III.

Friends and family are invited to attend a Funeral Mass on Saturday, Sept. 7, at 2 p.m., at St. Mary’s Church, facing the town Square in Nicasio, Calif. A reception will be held at the Druids Hall in Nicasio immediately following the service. An evening Vigil Service will be held at Daniels Chapel of the Roses, 1225 Sonoma Avenue in Santa Rosa on Friday, Sept. 6, at 7 p.m. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made in Mathew’s name to the ManKind Program at Center for Domestic Peace, 734 A Street, San Rafael, CA 94901-3923.

    So sorry to hear of Matt's passing. I have so many fond memories of Matt at UMHS. We had such a great time on the tennis team. Matt was a talented player, an unselfish teammate to all and a true pleasure to coach. I will miss his smile...so genuine and fun loving! Darci, Christie and all the rest of the family, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Sincerely, Coach Schnaidt
