Obituary

Colen Floyd Mattison, 24, of Lincolnton, Georgia died Tuesday, September 22, 2020, as a result of injuries sustained in a plane crash. Affectionately known as “Cole Baby” to his community, Cole graduated as an honor graduate from Lincoln County High School in 2014. While in high school he was a member of the golf and the baseball teams. His abilities on the baseball field allowed him to play in many positions, but friends and family seemed at peace when they saw him on the pitcher’s mound. Cole was able to control a baseball field with his calm demeanor and smart thinking. He spent many weekends traveling across the southeast with travel ball teams during his middle and high school years. Cole was a member of Lincolnton Baptist Church and accepted Christ in February 2007. Cole graduated from the University of Georgia in May 2020 with a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering, an ideal marriage of his perfectionism and innate math skills. He was hired by Lead Edge Design Group as a design engineer just a week after graduation – allowing him to combine his education, his pilot’s license, and his love for anything-aviation. While Cole had dreams of taking over the business he watched his daddy grow from the time he was a little boy, Mattison and Associates Land Surveyors, his newfound affinity for the application of surveying within the airport design and economic development realm meant that he had truly found his passion. On weekends Cole could be found on the lake with a boat full of friends, at his farm where people of any age were welcomed, or flying in his plane and living life to the fullest. He never went anywhere that he didn’t know someone or that he left without making a new friend. Cole is survived by his father and mother, James Frank Mattison, IV, and Janice Floyd Mattison, and sister Julianne, his grandmothers Jane Guillebeau Mattison and Rose Mock. Cole was predeceased by grandfathers Colen Floyd “PaPa” and James Frank Mattison, III, “Butch”. He is also survived by a special friend of the family, Thomas Garnett “Poonk”. Aunts, uncles, cousins, and a host of friends are celebrating his life and how his infectious smile had a way of touching the hearts of everyone he encountered. Friends and loved ones are asked to join the family as they remember this precious life that God allowed them to be a part of for twenty-four years on the airstrip of his farm at 1324 Elberton Highway at 6:00 PM Sunday, September 27, 2020. A private memorial service will be held with immediate family at the church preceding his celebration of life. November-Two-Six-Zero-One-Quebec is flying high and is forever in our hearts. Beggs Funeral Home 200 May Ave., Lincolnton, Ga. is saddened to announce the death of Colen Floyd Mattison.
