He was born in Fairfield, October 24, 1927, son of the late Frank and Ruby (Sorrell) Connor; Don married Reda Boylan, September 19, 1953, who predeceased him on April 29, 2006.

Don was a lifelong resident of Fairfield and spent his early years with Reda, working the dairy farm and raising their family. Don had a passion for sugaring, hunting, playing 500 and the Red Sox. He was a perpetually happy and gentle man who will long be remembered for singing Irish songs, his giant hugs for all and his commitment to his family and community. Don loved spending time with his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and could often be found handing out M&Ms to any small open hands.

Additionally, Don served proudly on the St. Patrick’s Cemetery Association Board, the St. Patrick’s Parish Credit Union and proudly maintained St. Patrick’s Cemetery for many years.
