Carter Riley Matousek, age 16 of Cassville, WI, passed away on Sunday, April 7, 2019. He was born in Prairie du Chien on May 1, 2002 the son of Mike Matousek and Christy Mumm. Carter attended Cassville High School and was active in many sports. He liked to hunt, fish and trap, and learned many lessons from his grandpas, Gary and Dave. Carter enjoyed playing video games, baseball, and he loved basketball. He often helped cut and stack firewood, not because he liked it, but because Carter took any chance he could to spend time with his family. Carter’s heart was not big, it was huge – he genuinely cared about people and will be long remembered for his love for others.
