Obituary of Christopher John Masiello
Christopher John Masiello, 29, of Howell passed away on Wednesday, April 13, 2022 at CentraState Medical Center, Freehold Township. He was born in Brooklyn, raised in Staten Island, and settled here in 2019. After graduating from Rider University with a degree in journalism, Christopher went to work for National Grid as a customer service representative. He was a sports fanatic and a skilled sports trivia enthusiast, avid gamer online with friends, as well as a tennis picker and UFC fight blogger. Some of his favorite teams were Ohio State, New York Mets, New York Jets and the Chicago Bulls, especially Michael Jordan. He loved a strong drink, to party with his loved ones, and celebrating his birthday in Atlantic City and playing craps or a good Texas hold ‘em game. Christopher was loved by all who knew him, even more so by his loyal friends. A true fighter, his poor health never stopped him, and also taught those around him to persevere. Nothing could keep him from being a fierce competitor, and he had a need to win.
Christopher is survived by his parents, James and Maria Masiello of Howell; brothers, Matthew Masiello and his fiancée, Lynzee of Jersey City, and Gregory Masiello of Howell; grandmother, Jennie Masiello; aunt, Lorraine Masiello, uncle, Anthony Bologna and his wife, Linda; godson, Vincent; cousins, Dana, T.J. and Desi, Jenna and her husband, John, Samantha and her fiancé, Kevin, and Paul; and many loving cousins, family members and friends.
