On Tuesday, April 21st, 2020 Matthew Dishmon, loving son, brother, and father, passed away at the age of 56. Matthew was born on May 20th, 1963 in Detroit, Michigan to Linda Dishmon and Matthew Garrett.

He attended Scott High School in Toledo, Ohio. He worked at Arlington Rack & Packaging for many years as a welder, and eventually adopted entrepreneurship with his hands in various things.

Matthew was a man about family. He valued the relationship he had with his brothers and took pride in looking out for them. This love didn’t miss a beat, as he extended his love and care to all those he knew. He loved his family, fishing, cooking, music, his cars, his dogs, and everything dealing with technology. He was also passionate about the food truck he was starting, that was sure to shut Toledo down, Ya Digg?

Matthew is preceded in death by his father, Mattew Garrett, and brothers: Marlon and Maurice.

Matthew leaves to cherish his memory, his loving mother Linda Shaw; his sister: Sonora (Clarence) Byrd; his brothers: Mark Garrett and Michael Garrett; his children: Raven, Dorian, & Javon; his special nephew: Marvon Garrett; his stepson: Antonio Green; special friend Debbie Villolovos, and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and loving friends.

Matthew was a amazing big cousin and I’ll never forget him I still remember one of my best summers ever was when I got to stay down in Toledo with him and his family and when I saw it was fun hanging with my big cousin I really enjoyed that summer and learned a lot from him I’m sorry for this list it’s a huge hit to everyone but I know he is in a better place and he’s watching over his mom and family now🙏🏾 Love, Boomer

He took pride in being his "Brothers' keeper". After loosing Marlon he decided that he needed to make sure to look out for Mark and Michael. He was very proud of his sons. I remember him telling me the younger son was different his mom was bringing him up right. One of his proudest moments was when his daughter graduated from high school. He was even more proud when she started college. He loved his mom Ms. Linda and his sisters in Detroit. He had a very special place in his heart for Marlons son cause he said his dad is not here so I have to step up for him. He appreciated what Glenda did for him as well. He was the most kind, smooth, and caring man that I knew. He loved his old music, that drop top blue Cadillac, and his dogs. His favorite after the spotted eye pitbull he had years ago, his lap dog became his baby.
I'll miss u my friend and your random calls or texts. No more pains or worries u r at ur best now.
