Paul M. Matik, 82

After years of corporate sales, Mickey aspired to have his own brand and founded Design Cottage, where he created and marketed his line of home furnishings which he later sold to Barth & Dreyfuss of California, Inc. 

Mickey’s final business achievement was the creation of Glenhil, a highly successful importer and supplier of home accessories. It was here, that Mickey’s keen eye for design brought the taste level of department store customers to the mass merchant arena.

Mickey loved all sports, but especially the New York Giants, New York Mets and UCONN Women’s Basketball.  He was a founding member of the Boys Of Summer Softball Team (BOSS) in Westport, and treasured Sunday mornings on the mound spent with many local friends. 

In addition, his ties to his Bronx childhood friends rekindled in recent years through regular get-togethers in their original neighborhood recanting stories from the Pelham Parkway Times.

Mickey is survived by his wife Fran of 59 years, children; Leslie Hahn (Arthur), Amy Berkin (Michael), David Matik (Libia), Scott Matik (Boadicea), his adored grandchildren; Jesse and Sam, Lily and Drew, James and Nicholas, Peyton, Talia and Cooper. Mickey was predeceased by his sister, Marilyn Feiner.

Services will take place on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 10:30 a.m.  from Temple Israel, 14 Coleytown Road, Westport,  with interment following at Temple Israel Cemetery, 225 Richards Ave, Norwalk. Shiva will be observed at the home of Amy Berkin in Weston. 

Memorial contributions may be made to;  Fairfield County Hospice House and Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County.
