Mr. Louis R. De Mattheis, 80, formerly of Verona and recently of Marco Island, Fla., died on April 3, 2020 in Morristown.
Services and interment were private.
Born and raised in Orange as the only child of Louis and Emily, Louis graduated from Orange High School and received an ROTC scholarship from Yale University where he earned his bachelor’s degree. He then served in the U.S. Navy as a lieutenant commander, living with his wife, Annette on various naval bases around the world before ultimately settling in Verona. Louis earned a master’s degree in business from Seton Hall University. He retired from PSE&G when he was just 40 years old to pursue his dream of investment real estate through his real estate management company, De Mattheis Management Co., LLC. He continued this lucrative real estate career for many years, before ultimately retiring in 2000. He has been permanently residing in Marco Island since then.
Louis De Mattheis was predeceased by his beloved wife, Annette (nee Martoccia) De Mattheis in 2001.
He is survived by his loving children, LuAnn De Mattheis (and her partner, Fred Hill, Jr.), Mark S. De Mattheis (and his wife, Rosann) and Steven De Mattheis; as well as his eight grandchildren, Andrew, Kimberley, Caroline, Christina, Gianna, Alec, Kaitlyn and Jonathan. Louis is also survived by his friend of 18 years, Constance Jeanette.
