John Mathews (August 25, 1923 - August 1, 2005)


John Mathews is a songwriter and singer. He sang baritone for the Rebels from 1951-1969. After leaving the Rebels Quartet, John formed the John Mathews Family, which had great success. This group consisted of his son, his two daughters, his son-in-law, and of course John himself singing the baritone part. John was J. D. Sumner's brother-in-law. He was a master communicator who was renowned for his recitations, not only on slow arrangements, but also on fast songs like "The Fourth Man."
