Connor was born and raised in Kelowna, had he not been in hospital he would have graduated from OKM School in June 2008. He loved life and enjoyed playing Lacrosse, rugby and street hockey with his buds, he enjoyed camping and fishing with his family, time spent on the ski hill and on the lake brought a smile to his face. He loved listening to music, celebrating Christmas, soft stuffies and Slurpees, but his first love was computers. He spent countless hours battling in other lands as the character “Mesde” in his favorite game W.O.W. he made numerous friends all over the world who will miss him greatly. Connor was always smiling and happy. He loved to make his family and friends laugh whether it was with a sarcastic remark or a little jig, as he passed by you, he never ceased to bring a smile to your face. He waged a long and difficult, yet very courageous battle with Ewing’s Sarcoma Cancer. He was always positive and never lost sight of the future right to the end. He is a true hero and friend to many. Special thanks to many Dr’s, Nurse’s and staff at both BC Children’s Hospital, Kelowna General Hospital and also to Ronald McDonald House BC.
