Here at Must Read Alaska, we’ve lost one of our dear friends — Barry Matteson — a longtime supporter (practically from day one of this publication.) He is one of the good ones. Many will remember him from the House of Harley, which he turned over to his daughter to run nearly a decade ago. He was a conservative, business entrepreneur, Harley fanatic, and always had a word of encouragement for this writer.

One of his friends said it well: “Barry Matteson was such a force, touching everyone he interacted with. I will NEVER forget him. I will always remember meeting him for the first time right before a Legion Rider meeting, in the parking lot, and the handshake that ended up turning into a lifetime hug. RIP my friend. Thank you for showing me the ropes, and so much more. Right now, I can’t stop crying.”

Ride hard, die free, Barry.
