Michael Albert Mattera, Jr of Edgewater, MD passed away on April 17, 2020. Michael was born in Washington, DC on July 10, 1974,to Michael Albert Mattera, Sr. and Linda Poe (Edgecomb). He was a graduate of the University of Maryland, where he earned a degree in Business Administration and established enduring friendships of his college buddies. Michael had a successful career with IBM, EMC/Dell and most recently Pure Storage. His work took him all over the world, where he was fortunate enough to develop many lasting friendships. The support and prayers his family received during his illness, from past and current business associates, was overwhelming. Michael was a big guy, with an even bigger heart. When he wasn’t traveling for work, he spent much of his time with his family and friends, playing golf with his father and other buddies, taking his mother and Aunt Sue to lunch and visiting his sister and her husband on their boat. Michael also just loved being home, playing with his dogs Carlos and Daisy, and cooking. In addition to his parents Michael is survived by his sister, Angela Mattera-Huggins (Ollie); his beloved Aunt Sue; cousins, Shane Forsythe and Kris Brown who were like brothers; special friend, Suzanne Schneider and a large extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins. He is preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Beatrice MacLellan and Irving Edgecomb; paternal grandparents, Albert and Louise Mattera and fiancée, Rebecca (Becky) Woodward. Michael had a very close bond with Becky’s family, Mary Elle (mother), Jinna(daughter),James( brother) Chloe, James and Jana (nieces and nephew) he continued many traditions with them that he and Becky had shared, hosting Thanksgiving, traveling to New York, California and Ocean City. Jinna started her freshman year at Catholic University in the fall and Michael loved visiting her, taking her out to dinner and making sure she had everything she needed. He was very proud of her.

A celebration of Michael's life will be planned for later this year. Donations may be made to Saint Leo the Great Roman Catholic Church, 227 South Exeter St. Baltimore, MD 21202.

I had the pleasure of getting to know Mike when we worked together at EMC, then continued when we both moved to Pure. We became fast friends and were planning a dinner with significant others on the waterfront in Annapolis. Mike was a sweet man who took care of many... RIP my friend. Never made that dinner happen, regretfully, but will think of you the next time we're there Mike. - Mango

You always had a way to put everyone above yourself. You loved and cared for people. You always had a joke to lighten the mood. You would talk about those you would meet on your trips and how to connect with people like you would any family member. Everyone you met you always left an impression on them. I will miss the times we had together, the places we went and the memories we made. You became my older brother and family. I hope to live and love like you did. I know you are happy up there with Beck and am sorry you had to suffer to get there. Love you bud.

I know Mike for about 5+ years, we worked together very closely in the last 1 year as he was my 'work partner' at Pure Storage. Not a day goes by where we didn't talk for atleast 10 times a day and we travelled all over the world in this last one year. He was a super nice person, humble and down to earth. I always called him an 'Honorary Citizen of India' due to his 40+ trips to that country. He always enjoyed the trips, people and the connections he made. The trips gave us many moments to share about our personal lives and that's where you get to see what a wonderful person he was. It's still hard to believe about his sudden departure. I will miss my friend forever. My sincere condolences to his family in this difficult time. May his soul rest in peace.
