    Connor was an amazing friend and person. It is devastating to hear of his passing. I enjoyed knowing Connor and remembering him as a young man growing up with my brother and other friends.

    He was truly loved by all and he has left a mark on many. He will never be forgotten. I pray for comfort for his family and friends that are experiencing this grief. May this bring the people who loved him closer together here on earth.

    Connor was a joy to us and always brought a spark to the Iron Bowl games we watched together. He became like one of our family when we first met him as a 12-year-old, inquisitive and adventurous young boy. We loved watching him grow up, skateboarding and fishing with our own son his age. His passing has left a huge hole in our lives.

    What a terrible loss for not only those around him, but those who were lucky enough to spend time with him.

    Connor, to me, was a friend when I had none, a mate I could go months without talking to and then just pick up the conversation where we left off, and someone I could chat for hours with about the most random things.

    I met Connor through online games by chance, and we built a friendship that lasted over 15 years. He was there to contacted when I needed it, and I was there for him when he had things go belly up.

    What really broke my heart was that just 16 days prior to this, he and I talked at length about him finally making good on his promise to visit me and my family. I was so excited I called my dad – who instantly recalled Connor. I spoke to potential employers about prospects for Connor, and even bought a few things for the spare room that would make him feel more at home. Heck, I even went shopping online to get some discs, so he could teach me how to play.

    The pain of all this is unbearable, and I simply can’t wrap my head around him not being there, or reading any of my messages. I just wish, one day, to pick up my phone and see his name pop up with a message of when to pick him up from the airport.

    Love you brother. I hope there is something after all of this.
