Christopher James Hughes

1986 ~ 2022 (age 36)


Christopher James Hughes, 36 years young, passed into the Lord's hands Sunday, Feb. 6, 2022.

Born in Wilkes-Barre, Jan. 26, 1986, Christopher was a graduate of Bishop Hoban High School and the University of Pittsburgh, earning double degrees in cognitive neuroscience and film studies. He studied abroad in Sydney, Australia, where he became enamored with photography. Evidence of his exquisite writing could be found in letters he wrote to family and friends offering thanks, support and advice. Exceptionally intelligent, Christopher could debate any topic tirelessly from a mind that was filled with information he read and studied. He was an animal rights, environmental and LGBTQ activist who fought for those who were marginalized by their differences and sufferings.

Christopher was preceded in death by his beloved grandfather, Walter Dorzinsky, the man who helped raise him.

He is survived by his loving mother, Cynthia Dorzinsky; and grandmother, Margaret Dorzinsky, who loved him with ever fiber of their being. He also leaves to mourn him aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who will miss him dearly.

May you go in peace, Christopher. You were a bright and caring young man who left us much too soon. You are now with your Heavenly Father and your tired and relentless struggle with addiction, physical pain and mental illness is over. May you now rest in peace.
