Carl "Skip" Mattson

Carl "Skip" Mattson, 67, of Johns Island, passed away on May 3, 2023.

From the Rhode Island Quonnie Shore where he grew up to the Monaco, Grand Prix, Carl enjoyed traveling with his wife, Cheryl, driving along winding countryside roads or sailing in Clipperships and 12 - Meter America Cups.

An avid tennis player, Carl also loved all things ocean: swimming, sailing, and boating. Quick to laugh, with a dry sense of humor, Carl was always interested in what others had to say, and formed many lasting friendships.

Carl leaves his beloved wife, Cheryl; their dog; many nieces and nephews; and many great nieces and great nephews.

Friends and family will be invited to Celebrations of Life at Kiawah Island, SC and Quonnie, RI.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be made to Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation (, the MUSC Foundation (, or any ocean related nonprofits.

Arrangements by J. Henry Stuhr, Inc. West Ashley Chapel.
