Lawrence Matwijeczko of Yorkton, beloved husband of Judy passed away on February 24, 2020 in the Regina General Hospital at the age of 79. Lawrence Nicholas Matwijeczko was born on May 3, 1940 in Canora, Saskatchewan. Lawrence was the oldest of two children of Nick and Rosie Matwijeczko. He attended elementary school in Buchanan, Saskatchewan, and high school at St. Joseph's College in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. He furthered his education by taking Registered Industrial Accounting classes through the University of Regina and the University of Saskatchewan. Lawrence married the love of his life, Judy, on June 24, 1961 in Buchanan. They lived in Yorkton from then until now. They have been blessed with three children (Lorie, Marcel and Terry) and four granddaughters (Kelsey, Shaelynn, Jada, Macy). Lawrence's work career included being an Accounting Clerk with the Saskatchewan Co-operative Creameries in Yorkton, Office Manager at St. Joseph's College in Yorkton, Accountant with Parker & Quine Chartered Accountants in Yorkton, Accounting Manager with Leon's Manufacturing in Yorkton, and Finance Supervisor with Saskatchewan Crop insurance in Melville. While working these various positions, he also worked on the family farm in the Buchanan area at the same time. After working at Crop Insurance for few years, along with Judy, they started their own Accounting company, JL Matrix Associates. Shortly after, they also took over a Rubber Stamp company. From then until now, they provided both Accounting & Rubber Stamp manufacturing services in the Yorkton area. When he wasn't working, Lawrence enjoyed spending time with his family and fishing. Over the years Lawrence went on many trips through out Canada and the United States with his family, and a month long trip to Australia with his wife. He also enjoyed spending his summer time at the lake, camping and fishing with his family. Lawrence was also a lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus.
In 2005 he survived open-heart surgery. He had an enlarged aorta, and received a Teflon-lined replacement aorta, along with a mechanical valve. After this surgery, he enjoyed a better quality of life until recently. Over the last year or two, he did start to experience some health issues, which eventually led to his passing.
Lawrence is predeceased by his parents, Nick and Rosie, his uncle Mike, inlaws Nick and Annie Boretz, and sister in-law Mary Brezden. He is survived by his wife Judy, daughter Lorie and her family (Gerard, Jada, Macy), son Marcel & his family (Lynn, Kelsey, Shaelynn), son Terry, sister Rosemarie and several nieces and nephews.
Good bye Lawrence, you leave us much better people for having you in our lives. You will be greatly missed.

My condolences to Judy and family. Lawrence was my tax preparer for many years before I moved, and before that he employed my daughter as a student. He gave good advice and was always so pleasant to visit with. He will be missed by many.
