Rodney Mac Matheson was born on July 14, 1944 in Tucson, Arizona and passed away in his Queen Creek, Arizona home on Tuesday, June 18, 2024.

He is survived by Norma, his wife of nearly 52 years and their 5 children: daughters Elizabeth Mulleneaux (Jean-Marc) and Anna Stephenson (Adam) and sons Alexander (Julie), Montgomery (Alies) and Lincoln (Summer). They have 23 grandchildren and 1 great-grandchild.

The second of 7 children, he is preceded in death by his parents, Mac and Ouida May, and a younger sister.

Following full time service as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Mexico, he was drafted into the United States Army at the height of the Vietnam War. Twice a Bronze Star recipient, he was honorably discharged after 2 years of service and returned home to Tucson, where he graduated from law school at the University of Arizona.

His greatest joys were always found in his family. A beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, son and brother, he constantly sought to create happy memories with those he loved the most. This included countless sporting events, family reunions, and road trips.

At the time of his passing, he and Norma were serving as Member Leadership Support missionaries in the Gilbert, Arizona Mission. This punctuated a life of church service, having blessed countless lives as a bishop and member of the stake presidency, amongst many other church callings. He tirelessly sought to aid in the growth and success of others through family, community, and church service throughout his life.

Services will be held on Saturday, June 29 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints located at 21915 E Cloud Rd, in Queen Creek, AZ. Visitation is from 9-9:45am, with the funeral service from 10-11am. A graveside service will be held immediately following at the San Tan Memorial Gardens. A Zoom link is available upon request for those unable to attend in person.
