Published in Oct. 11, 2000, issue

Matty died on June 2, 2000, from cancer at the age of 81. He died at Royal Palm Convalescent Center, Vero Beach.

A NYC native, he prepped for Princeton at Lawrenceville. While on campus, Matty was a member of Quadrangle and was on the track and tennis teams.

He was an executive at Cannon Mills in New York for many years, retiring in 1985. Three years later, he moved to Vero Beach, where he became a member of the Riomar Yacht Club.

Matty is survived by his three children: a son, Matthew III; daughters Mary Margaret Caskey and Dorothy.

To the entire family, we extend our deepest and most heartfelt sympathies.

If this is the son of Matt Geise, PU track coach and my boyhood neighbor in Lawrenceville, I recall Matt Jr. and his father both very fondly, and have recently written of them in an essay I've been working on the past two years. My condolences to the family.
