Alexander Matthew Matero, “Sasha”, died on March 12, 2014 following a long battle with drug addiction. Sasha was born Aleksandr Victorovitch Kuznetzov, on April 21, 1989, in Saratov, Russia. In 1999, he became a Matero, moved to Cold Spring and was welcomed with open arms by our amazing community. He graduated from Haldane in 2007. He was licensed in HVAC maintenance.
Sasha is survived by his parents, Jim and Melanie Matero, his siblings, James Matero, Katie Szirmay (Ryan), Kristy Matero (Justin Titley), his grandparents, Jim and Margaret Matero, Robert Myers and Sarah Kerr, a niece, two nephews, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. Even while fighting this devastating illness, Sasha never lost his sense of humor or his compassion. His captivating smile always lit up the room. Our beloved “Little Blond Boy” will own our hearts forever.
