Christopher Charles Dishon

AGE: 22 • Toms River

Christopher Charles Dishon, 22, of Toms River, NJ lost his life to heroin addiction on April 27, 2017. Chris struggled with this demon for many years and fought a courageous battle which sadly he did not win. As with many young people who are fighting this disease, he believed he was invincible. "It will never happen to me, Mom."

Christopher was born in San Antonio, Texas on December 24, 1994. He graduated from St. Joseph Grade School and Lacey Township High School. Chris had a smile that lit up any room he entered. He was a kind and gentle soul who saw only the good in others. Anyone who ever came in contact with Chris knew he had a heart of gold.

Surviving are his proud and loving mother, Margaret Dishon Superior, his step-father, Theodore Superior, his sister and best friend, Alicia Dishon, his devoted Auntie and "second mother," Rita Dishon, his dear cousin, Rosie "Roz" Dishon, his Pop-pop, Charles V. Dishon, his step-brother, Michael Superior, his step-sister, Christine Miller and her husband Scott, and many beloved aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Family will receive friends on Tuesday, May 2, 2017 from 4-8 p.m. at the Timothy E. Ryan Home for Funerals, 145 St. Catherine Blvd. in Toms River. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at 10 a.m. at St. Joseph's Church, 685 Hooper Avenue, Toms River. Interment will follow at Ocean County Memorial Park.

Donations may be made to City of Angels NJ, Inc. P.O. Box 10237, Trenton, NJ 08650 or www.CityOfAngelsNJ.org. This organization reaches out to those struggling with addiction, those in recovery, and their families.
