Condolences

Little I knew that morning, God was going to call your name, in life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone, for part of me went with you, the day God called you home. You left such beautiful memories: your love is still our guide, and though we cannot see you, you are always by our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

Connor was an amazing person. We would play video games into the late night hours all the time. It was amazing to see this guy named Solophoenix carry all of us in just about any game we played. I truly cherished every moment I have spent with him. I and Connor's other friends in Indiana will miss him very much.

I met Connor the first week of school at the University of Dayton and in the time he was with us, he was an amazing person to be around. One time, I got hurt playing racquet ball with him and another friend. He ran to get help, while the other friend stayed. I was so glad he was there. I will always be grateful for his company and the time I got to spend with him.

Connor and I first met at Boy Scouts and then later swam together at Lakota East. I can whole heartedly say that he was an incredibly positive influence and a wonderful friend. We shared many jokes and he helped me make near impossible homework an easy chore. The troop, the team, and I will miss him dearly.-Michael Szczepkowski

Connor was on my swim team last year and he was such a pleasure to be around. He was just the sweetest guy and it cheered me up every time I saw his contagious smile. On behalf of all of the Lakota swim team, we will greatly miss you Connor.

Connor was truly a great friend, I worked with him at Kings Island for a couple summers. He was so fun to hang around with and a good listener. He was the type of friend who would look after you and stick up for you. He will be greatly missed and not forgotten, my heart goes out to the family.

My daughter goes to University of Dayton and she told me about your son, Connor. You have my deepest sympathy and prayers for Connor and your family. I am in my Catholic chapel right now in St Louis,MO, praying for your son's soul and for your family to have strength, faith, and peace during this time. I am also offering up your family's suffering at this time. May God take good care of Connor til you see him again. Barb

It was a true pleasure to get to know Connor and to serve as his Eagle coordinator this year. I have watched Connor and his brother grow from small unsure boys into intelligent and compassionate young men. Scouting brings out the best in each generation of boys if they embrace the challenge to do their best, and I cannot think of anyone who rose to the challenge more than Connor. He will be missed. To the Alexander family I offer my deepest condolences.

I am so terribly sorry to hear of Connor's passing. He was a wonderful, kind and giving young man that I will always remember. I know there are no words to ease your pain and loss, but please know that I am so very grateful to have had Connor and Corey as my students, and that you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Sending love and peace.

So very, very sorry~

I am devastated by the news that we have lost such a fine young man in Connor. I had the pleasure to be his Den Leader while he was a Cub Scout, and I watched him and my son Tim progress through Scouts together. I know how much Scouting meant to him. Words cannot express the sadness I feel for his family and friends that loved him and miss him so much.

Connor was a fellow peer of mine here at the University of Dayton and was someone everyone was friends with. Connor will be dearly missed and everyone here at the University of Dayton is praying for you and your family. May God Bless all of you.

The angels looked down from heaven one night.They searched for miles afar, And deep within the distance They could see a shining star. They knew that very instant That the star was theirs to gain, So they took you up to heaven, Forever to remain. Look down on us from heaven. Keep us free from hurt and pain.You'll always be within my heart Until we meet again. Please accept my deepest sympathy.

Connor was a fellow scout, competitor, teammate, and friend. I remember him telling me he was going to be my teammate on Lakota East swim team and I did not know what to think. I was super excited, but kinda missed the fact that I would not get to compete against him. I loved swimming with Connor, going on camp outs, and getting to know him better. Connor will be missed by me and by the whole troop and swim team, but I always counted on him to make a long swim meet a little bit better.

We share in your sadness as you remember Connor. Nick and he have been friends since preschool and we are thankful they became so close the last few years. Connor was always polite when he visited. The four boys are like brothers and always worked out a weekend swap. We will be there Thursday and in the future to comfort all of you. With much love, The Armstrong’s- Bruce, Susan, Ryan and Nick
- Susan Armstrong
I am so sorry for your pain in this difficult time! The Bible tells us the condition of the dead and that God promises a resurrection. I hope you find comfort from Ecclesiastes 9:5, 10 and John 5:28, 29. Please accept my deepest sympathy.
