    It is a great loss when God takes some one so young from our site and we can not understand why. God has a purpose for all of us and it was Conner’s time to be in the loving arms of God now to take care of him and watch over him. Many hearts are crying out for Conner’s passing but he will never be forgotten. Conner’ s light will always be shining bright for all to see and guide

    Conner where do I start… I’ve know you for as long as I can remember. You were a true friend that could make a bad situation better with just a smile. The pain of losing you is just something I can’t explain. You were way to young to be ripped from us brother. This tragedy has hit hard on our small town family. Everyone weather they were close to you or not will remember how great of a person you are.

    I have had just a handful of interactions with Conner, and he always has been friendly, respectful, and good natured. Conner dropped by my office the day before this terrible accident, to take care of some insurance business, and we chatted for about 10 minutes. He and my son Andrew Smith were in some classes together last year, and Conner asked me how Andrew is doing (he is taking his senior year in Japan).
