Knight of the Month

Joseph Thomas Matthews

Joseph (Joey) Thomas Matthews was born and raised in Union to Patrick and Grace Matthews.  He is a proud Irish American and is the third in line of five children. He is a graduate of Union High School and a resident of Union currently, living with his sister Kathleen Holmes and brother in law, John.

Joey’s favorite sport is bowling and was even a worker at The Four Seasons Bowling Alley.  He also bowls himself and has been on the same bowling league since high school. Later on, Joey spent over twenty years working at the Shiki Japanese Steak House.

For over thirty- five years he has been a member of the Knights of Columbus and is a parishioner at St. Michael’s Church. Joey spends most of his time at the Knights cleaning up and keeping things in order.  He is a dedicated Knight and an arduous worker.  He is always there to lend a hand whenever help is needed!


The Knights of Columbus is proud to announce Joseph Thomas Matthews as Knight of the Month.

Congratulations Joey!
