Jack's Story

Text size

Jack Clayton Connor, 14, of Zionsville, died Sept 1, 2017. Jack was born on Dec. 23, 2002, in Indianapolis and is the son of Stephen Myers and DeDe Kristine (Surber) Connor Jr.
Jack was a member of the Zionsville Fellowship Church and a freshman at Zionsville High School. He was involved in baseball, soccer, and wrestling and loved playing frisbee golf.
Jack was a true gentleman. He was true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy - Philippians 4:8-9. Jack was always humble, despite deserving and receiving much praise on the sports fields, from friends, from church members and many adults in the community.
He was wholly and deeply loved by his parents and all five of his siblings. He had an excellent (but dry) sense of humor. His three younger siblings especially adored him and he was always caught playing in the back yard with them instead of doing chores or homework.
Calling will be held on Wednesday, Sept. 06, 2017 at Zionsville Fellowship Church from 1 to 4 p.m., followed by the funeral service beginning at 4 p.m.
Jack is survived by his parents; Stephen and DeDe Connor Jr.; his siblings, Quinn, Cole, A.J., Hudson and Brooklyn Connor; his grandparents, James Surber, Judy (Turner) Colyer, Stephen (Sherry) Connor Sr., and Carol Connor, his great grandmother, Ella Turner and a host of aunts and uncles and cousins and friends.
Burial will be in the Union Lutheran Cemetery in Zionsville.

He was planning to be a junior counselor in the summer of 2018.
