Jef Mattern of Spearfish, South Dakota January 6, 1962 - April 12, 2019 On Friday, April 12, 2019, Jeffrie Lynn Mattern, lost his short battle with cancer at the age of 57 years old. Jef was born in McIntosh, SD, on January 6, 1962, the seventh child of Peter John and Gladys Marie (Lenerville) Mattern. Jef was raised in McIntosh and worked with his father at the Mobil Station. Jef graduated from McIntosh High School in 1980. He then attended Mitchell Vocational Technical School, from which he graduated in 1982. In August of 1982, he moved to Spearfish, SD, where he began working for Wolff ’s Plumbing & Heating. Jef bought into the company in 1989, and remained a proud owner until his passing. Jef was always light-hearted at work, yet always held high expectations for the work done by Wolff ’s Plumbing and Heating. He always looked forward to the annual Christmas party held by the company. Jef also enjoyed our company picnic every summer. He was always willing to cook for our families, while joking around with our kids. He was not only a co-worker and boss, he was a true friend to many. In 1987, he married Jacqueline and the couple were blessed with two children before their union ended in 2003. They continued to raise their children in Spearfish. Jef ’s children were very important to him, and he took great pride in the people they’ve become. His two children, Dusty Ryan (Fort Collins, CO) and Allyx Emily (Spearfish, SD) remain part of the Wolff ’s family. Both have worked for Wolff ’s over the years, and between the two have almost as many years with the company as their father. Jef lived his life to the fullest, and he had a very active social life; many friends and neighbors will remember the parties hosted in his garage over the years. He was an avid hunter and fisherman, and an active member of the National Wild Turkey Federation. In his younger years, he was proud volunteer member of the Spearfish Volunteer Fire Department. One of his favorite places was Shadehill Lake, and many summers were enjoyed there with friends and family. Visitation will be from 5-7 pm Wednesday, April 17, 2019 at Fidler-Isburg Funeral Chapel in Spearfish. Funeral services will be at 10:30 AM on Thursday, April 18, 2019 at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Spearfish, with visitation one hour prior. In lieu of flowers, a memorial has been established. Wolff ’s Plumbing and Heating is very proud to be a family business, and this week, we have lost a beloved member of our family. You will be forever missed, Jef. From the Owners and employees, you will be In our Hearts forever!
