Michael Stephen Mattingly
Mattingly, Michael Stephen, 75, entered into eternal life on Monday, December 21, 2020, while at his Cane Ridge Road home, with family by his side.
Mickey, as he was known by everyone, was born on May 6, 1945, in Louisville, KY to the late Alton and Agnes Mattingly.
Mickey was a graduate of Louisville’s Trinity High School; he was a devoted Shamrocks football fan all his life. At 18 years of age, Mickey fell in love with his wife of 53 years, Linda Prater Mattingly. They married when he was 22 years old. After graduation from Bellarmine College, he worked for an oil company for 30 years.
After retirement Mattingly bought a Bourbon County farm, where he raised cattle and devoted himself to his family. He was an active member of Annunciation Catholic Church, where over the years he served on the parish council. He also was a director of Mt. Olivet Catholic Cemetery. He served as a Eucharistic minister, and was quietly involved with nursing home ministry. He was a member of the local Knights of Columbus council.
Left to carry on his cherished memory are his children, Drew Mattingly (Lindsay) of Buford, GA and Tiffany Mattingly DuPree (Phil) of Canton, GA; along with 4 grandchildren; and a host of other family and friends who loved him dearly.
The Memorial Mass will be held at the Catholic Church of Annunciation in Paris, KY on Saturday, January 2, 2021, at 11:00 a.m., with Rev. Daniel Fister officiating. Visitation will begin at 9:30 a.m., at the church, prior to the service.
