Matthew Gaspard Obituary

Matthew Scott Gaspard, just before his 70th birthday, died from cancer on July 25th, 2023 in the home he built on Anderson Island, WA.  Scott graduated from Puyallup H.S. in 1971 and University of Puget Sound in 1975.  After working five years for state government in Olympia, he worked for the Washington Financial League, a banking trade association, where he was the CEO for 25 years.  Scott also held senior positions dealing with banking policy before retiring in 2014.

Scott bravely fought off his first bout of cancer in 2014, allowing him quality time with his family, especially his young granddaughters on his beloved Island.  He continued to sail, water ski, launch into the water off his rope swing, outwork everyone on projects, enjoy Island concerts, and sleep under the stars, until cancer returned to take his life.  Scott’s heartbeat is embedded within Agate Beach and he will be long remembered with great joy.

He is survived by his wife Gwen (Soine), sons Tyler and Kellen, and granddaughters Lydia and Violet.  He is also survived by his mother Joanne Gaspard, brother Marcus Gaspard and sisters Paula Gaspard, Deborah Evans, and Paige Gaspard.  His younger brother, Grant, died in 2021 and father, Gordon, died in 1989.
