Matthew J. Marszalek of Southampton, Pennsylvania died Friday, July 28, 2017 at Southampton Estates.  He was 87 years old. Matthew was born May 18, 1930 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, son of the late Joseph and Catherine Marszalek. He is the beloved husband of 65 years of Marguerite Marszalek (nee - Gille); father of Gary M.

Matthew was raised and educated in Philadelphia. He enlisted in the United States Coast Guard and was stationed in Portland Maine.

During his working years, Matthew was a government employee at the Frankford Arsenal until its closing at which point he moved on to the Philadelphia Naval Yards until retirement. Matt always had a twinkle in his eye and a song to sing, living life to the fullest and will be remembered as the life of the party. He loved to make others laugh with his unique sense of humor.
