|A Celebration of the Life of Hank Connors|
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Hank Connors, 76, born on February 22, 1940 and passed away on March 24, 2016. We will remember him forever.
Hank always had a tremendous fondest for homeless animals. If you would care to donate to a SPCA charity (Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando) you can do so in Hank's name by going to the following address and just put Hank's name in the Honoree space. You may have to do a copy and paste to your URL line.
"As youngsters, we saw our cousins, Hank and Donny, frequently when the aunts got together. As we got older we lost touch, coming together at a family visit to Disneyland, when Hank and Nancy were nice enough to bring his mother, my aunt and on one occasion here in CT. After that not so much contact, since he was in FL and I was in CT. But we fairly recently started exchanging e-mails frequently. He would send me outrageously politically incorrect e-mails, and his own thoughts on life and such. I warned him on a regular basis that he would go to hell in a handbasket for his irreverence to the political machine and many other things, sending him equally outrageous e-mails that I knew he would enjoy. However I'm sure that when he approached those pearly gates in his handbasket, St, Peter looked into those devilish Irish eyes, said "ah, that explains it" and stepped aside to welcome him in handbasket and all. God bless, Hank, we all know you're safely home.
His presence will be sadly missed."
"Oak was a very special , very unique "character" -- one we all loved -- one who was always positive -- one who always brought a smile to our faces -- one who always had you back . We shared hundreds of wonderful , fun experiences --as classmates at Prep , while in college , when we were both in Florida , and then Texas , and then Florida again --never a dull moment with Hank -- I will treasure all of them . Pat and my prayers are with Nancy and family ."
"Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your loved one. To say Hank was a larger than life character would be an understatement. I worked with him for many years at Federal APD. He will always be remembered as a great wit and a thoughtful and caring guy."
"Fairfield Prep just notified me that my old buddy from 4E had passed on. Fr. O'Conner had nicknamed him "CANNONBALL". He was a great guy and classmate. Also sad that I live in Orlando but did not know he was so close. Will be missed.

"Oak was a wonderful Spirit, loyal, easy going, with a terrific sense of humor, one which he would unexpectedly surprise you with a quip or action!
We mourn his loss on earth, but thank God for the time we had with him. Our prayers to his family. We lost a terrific guy, but Oak's memory will live on.

"Hank old buddy may you Rest in Peace. Hank was a Sales Colleague at Federal APD. We would talk often to discuss the ups and downs of the business. Hank would always leave me laughing at the end of our conversation. I would lament about issues we were dealing with and he would say "Jimmy We have met the enemy and it is US" . I would just laugh!!!! My condolences to the family."
"RIP Hank. I worked with Hank for many years at Federal APD. Hank always shared a wonderful sense of humor and a quick wit. No matter how tough things may have gotten at times, we always shared a laugh. It has been years since Hank and I been together, but I will miss him dearly. God bless Hank Connors"
"There is a saying "The mightiest oak in the forest is just a little nut that held its ground". Growing up, Hank was to me that mighty Oak. I may be mistaken but I think I recall his UCONN fraternity name was The Oak. In almost any sport I attempted, Hank was always there and doing it a little better than what I was capable of. He was a tremendously inspirational figure to me and I feel blessed to have had him for a brother."
