1952 - 2021
DUNSON, Laddie "Chris"

Born October 28, 1952, and resided in Dayton, Ohio, and died on May 12, 2021. Chris

attended Miami Chapel

Elementary School, Dunbar High School, and received a full scholarship to Bowdoin

College in Maine. Chris loved music and was an excellent singer and musician. He

enjoyed his long career at LexisNexis; however, he had retired. His greatest accomplishment was when he became one of Jehovah's Witnesses. This gave him the knowledge to have Bible studies with others searching for Bible truths. Chris is survived by his wife of 15 years, Paris; sons: Jasun, Daniel, and Tim; daughters: Erika and

Candace; 4 grandchildren, 5 brothers, 6 sisters, and a host of family and friends. Preceded in death by father, Albert, stepfather Odell and mother Marie. Chris died treasuring the thought that the Bible does give hope to the dead, not in Heaven but here on Earth.

We can't wait to see you again, Brother Dunson ❤

Brother Dunson was like another father/uncle to me because of my tight bond with his daughter Erika. It was always natural for him to just approach me and start checking to make sure I had been ok.. He would immediately ask me about my parents. Then we would move into my friendship with Erika. He would offer to help if he could with whatever. I remember when my mother was in testing to see if her sugar levels were controllable and did not understand how to use her diabetic meter. He told her he would help. And he did! He stuck to it.

When he would tell his stories, I could see him going back into time and catching details.

My heart goes out to his children, especially Erika and Jasun. Yet, also Tim, Candace and others who became his children in love. It also goes out Paris-with her warm smile. I am sending heartfelt love to his brothers and sisters-it is a different pain to lose a sibling.
Looking forward to the day when Jehovah dies away with death forever.
