David Benjamin Matossian

David was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. by an immigrant Armenian family that valued their faith above all else. He came home to five older siblings; John, James, Mary, Paul, and Lucille. His entire family enjoyed going to their cabin in Big Bear, California where they hiked and fished.

He graduated from Fairfax High School in 1955.  He enjoyed chess club, Latin, and tennis class.  After high school, he went to LA City College for two years and studied Electronics.  David then transferred to UCLA where he studied Mathematics for 2 1/2 years.

David served our country in the Army.  He was at Fort Ord as A1 E1 infantry.  He was assigned as a Statistical Mathematician to work on anti-ballistic missiles for 2 years.

He worked at Lockheed for 26 years under several titles as a computer analyst.

David and his wife Frances met at the Church of the Open Door; they were married in 1967.  For 52 years he was a loving and devoted husband. They lived in their beautiful home in Sunland, CA.

He enjoyed planting things and watching them grow, as seen by all the fruit and lemon trees on their property.   Some of David’s hobbies and interests include puzzles, playing chess, and bird watching.

    David was into gadgets of all kinds. He not only had one of everything, but had 2 or 3; a backup for the backup. Always the gracious host. I spent lots of fun times in his Big Bear home. He was very sharp and knowledgeable about so many things. He had a dry sense of humor. I’ll miss that about him.

    Our deepest sympathy to the Matossian family. David was so kind and funny. I always admired how devoted he was to Frannie and how he always made sure to get her to the church services and events. We’ve missed his sweet quiet ways.

    We will miss him terribly. Our hearts go out to the Matossian family.
    It is a great loss to us and all. We have known David and Francis for over 50 years.
    it is with a heavy heart we write this. He was a sweet wonderful and close friend.
    David lived across the street, and we watched over each other.
    Both David and Fran loved Nitsa’s cooking, Nitsa enjoyed offering her dishes that were so much loved and appreciated.

    My Uncle David. He looked so much like my dad, sometimes I would get them mixed up at family gatherings! Many great memories swimming at David and Fran’s house, listening to The Blackwood Brothers. Also great memories camping and visiting the cabin at Big Bear. I know he is having a great reunion with his brothers, Lucille, Fran, and his parents. But best of all, he is seeing his Savior face to face!
