Matthew C. Ivery
1950 – 2019
West Winfield
Heaven came quickly for Matt on Friday October 18th. He survived Lung cancer for four years under the compassionate care of Dr. McKenzie Evangilist and her oncology staff of Albany Medical Center.
Matt’s love of family, laughter, life, and faith were never darkened by his illness. To know him was to share his laughter and values. The true character of Matt is reflected in the devotion, pride, and love he had for his children, family, and friends.
Matt and Mary Martin Ivery shared a loving marriage of 34 years and a combined family of three children and 7 grandchildren. His home became a second home for his son’s friends, installing a basketball court and full size pool table… and few weekends went by without having some sort of sports tournament in our home. They all loved “Mr. Ivery.”
Matt is survived by his son Sean Ivery and wife Tia, their sons Kieran and Cameron of San Francisco, CA. His son Brian and wife Isis and their daughters Zoe, Flynn, and Harper, of Ithaca. Mary’s daughter Kim resides in Daytona Beach, FL and her two sons Zachary and Stone. He also leaves brothers Paul (Janet) Ivery, Marty (Terry) Ivery, a sister Rosemary (Tony) Racho, and mother-in-law Marion Dugan. Sisters and brothers in law Marie (Edward) Clark, Margaret and John Parker, Marlyn (Ron) Brant, Betty (Marty) Quinn, Theresa (Todd) Lozo and a special brother-in-law Peter (Joanne) Dugan who daringly let Matt be his wingman in a huge snowplow. In addition, he leaves many wonderful nieces, nephews, and cousins, as well as a very special friend Bill (Mary) Mocarski. We cannot forget his furry friend, Doogie, who never left his buddy’s side.
He left quietly, with no pain and a heart full of love, undying faith, and his joy in making other’s days a little better.
Matt was predeceased by his parents Joe and Irene Ivery, his sister Anne Ivery, a brother John Ivery and his wife Donna, and father-in-law Lawrence Dugan Jr.
Matt and Mary lived in Syracuse when they married 34 years ago. When the children were in college, being the amazing salesman that he was, he persuaded Mary to move to the west coast making homes in Newport Beach, CA and Las Vegas, NV for 22 years. They retired to West Winfield, NY in 2017. Matt wasn’t quite ready for this thing they called retirement and accepted a part time position at Cavo Building and Supply in Utica, NY working up until a week before he passed… still adding to his large family of friends
Calling hours will be on Wednesday October 23rd at Smith Funeral Home, 3022 Oneida Street, Sauquoit, NY from 5-7 pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday morning at 10 am, at St. Patrick St. Anthony’s Catholic Church 3372 Oneida St, Chadwicks, NY. A private family burial will take place following the Mass.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, envelopes will be made available at the funeral home.
