  1. Sue Samuel says:

    I was so sorry to learn of the passing of dear Mr. Mattenklott. I was the Agency contact responsible for security during the years he provided security at Children Services and I came to love this wonderful man. He was so kind and considerate, did such a wonderful job, and I was so fortunate to know and work with this kind, caring gentleman. My thoughts and prayers go out to all his family. Thank you for sharing him.
