Louie Sweet

Louie Sweet is  “The Last of the Mohicans”.  

This is one of Louie’s countless jokes referring to having outlived his siblings.  

He was born in Sampaloc Manila on March 18, 1934.  

He passed away in New Jersey on September 1, 2020. 

He is survived by his 5 children, and his nephew Ronald. 

Allan Louie Matamis and Family - Jenniffer, Jason, Alix, and Inna.
Anna Liza Matamis and Family – Matthew Craig, Michael, Liza Anne, and Matthew James.
Marc Anthony Matamis and Family - Judy, and Jake.
Jose Mari Matamis and Family - Lourdes, Jodyann, and Jeremy.
Ariel Stephen Matamis and Family – Linda Blice.
Ronald Mamangon and Family - Joyce, Jaden, Sophia, Rhiaine, and Dylan. 

Louie Sweet, born as Luisito "Louie" Matamis, is the son of Albino and Crisanta Matamis. 

 He met Claire Mamangon in Pasay City, and she quickly conquered his heart. 

 Louie and Claire got married in Pasay City Philippines in 1963.  

He had 1 brother and 5 sisters - Carmelita, Nicanor, Virginia, Genoveva, Rosita, and Luz. 

Louie Sweet is a true gentleman who never raised his voice or never lost his temper.  He was a kind hearted jokester who always came up the right words and stories that brightened everyone’s day.  He was also a devoted father who showed unending love to his wife, and family.  After losing his wife Claire to Covid-19, he slowly lost the will to live.  

He will be missed dearly by many.
