ROXBURY, NJ - Robert Matthews, the father of a Roxbury High School hockey player, died Thursday.
Matthews was the beneficiary of an online fundraiser launched last year by the Roxbury High School Interact Club. His son, Justin Matthews, is an Interact Club member and plays hockey for the Roxbury Gaels.
In addition to Justin, Matthews left a daughter, Skylar Matthews, and a wife, Jennifer. He was originally diagnosed as having pneumonia but a CAT scan subsequently found a bronchial tumor, according to the family.
