    Matthew "Big Chief" Mason was one of the most genuine men I've known. We used to sit down and converse for hours about the war, his flowers, and what life was like in the '60s. Rest In Peace, Matt, thanks for the memories.

    I worked with Matt 13 years at Vanguard. He was a good guy and great friend. We shared many a story together golfing here and during our many trips to Hilton Head. Rest in Peace Matt, you will be missed.
