Ed Ryan: R.I.P. - #317 - Christopher Matlosz - Lakewood Police Dept.
As he is laid to rest this morning, it is with a heavy heart that each of us here at Mets Fever says good bye to Officer Christopher Matlosz, of the Lakewood Police Department. While we never knew him, it is clear by the comments of those who did that Chris brought out the best in those around him.
Chris died this past Friday, the victim of senseless violence. However, in his passing he has continued to bring out the best in others. Since the first mention of 'officer down' rang out over police scanners, Lakewood has seen an outpouring of support and experienced a sense of unity not seen in town for many years.
In addition to his fellow officers at the Lakewood Police Department, Chris leaves behind his mother, brother and fiance. Should you feel compelled to make a donation in his honor, you can do so via:
Lakewood PBA c/o Chris Matlosz
P.O. Box 1519
Lakewood, NJ 08701
May Chris' friends and family remember him in the brightest of lights. Remember only the joy he brought to your lives and honor him by extending his level of kindness to others. Officer Matlosz, we thank you for your service and your sacrifice. Rest In Peace #317
