Connor,
I am so blessed to have you as my nephew/ godson. You are a special person to me and you’ll always have a special place in my heart. We spent a lot of time together when you were younger and wish I spent time with you in your adult years. Although we have talked through Facebook and when I did see you the few times I did the past couple years you were an intelligent young man who always made me laugh. I love you Connor and always will.
Love Always Uncle Dave

Connor,
I still can’t believe you are gone. I don’t want to believe it is real. You meant so much to so many people and were loved by many. Your presence lit up the room and your personality was one of a kind. Your love for ALL animals was so heartwarming. I hope you have all the 4 legged fur babies running to you, up in the clouds. I know you are at peace now with the Lord. Please watch over all of us and continue to make your presence known. I know you will be with us all in spirit, until the day we are all called home…….. Rest easy up there Connor, we love you and will miss you forever. We will never forget you❤️

To my Loving Cousin; ❤️ Connor Hilpert,

I miss you more than words can explain. I'm so sorry I have been gone for 10+ years I'm so sorry I didn't get to be there for you, and I'm especially sorry you were going through so much and I didn't even notice. I'm thankful that we had just recently sent a few messages to eachother before your passing. I'm so grateful I got to atleast tell you that I miss you and love you one last time. ❤️ My heart is broken to know you are gone to soon, but I know you are at peace now. We will all carry you on your way through life with us all in our hearts. I remember when we used to go fishing, have sleep overs, watch movies, and so much more but especially when we went skating we loved it. I remember when We would all go swimming and get together for our family get togethers and birthday parties we would all have a blast. I miss those times we just got to be kids and not a care in the world went through our minds about stuff the world has for us today. This crazy thing we call life today is something so different then we could ever imagine. I miss you so much it hurts. We have lost so many recently and not being there for you all kills me.  I hope you guys are resting but also partying it up together ❤️ you will be missed each and everyday Cuzzo! Forever & Always in our hearts! I wish I could just hug you one more time! But I know your up there watching over us all. We love you!

My dear cousin you have been missed so much by so many..this has been one of the hardest things I have ever had to encounter in my life. The thought that all I have left of you are memories and pictures breaks my heart. I would do anything to be able to hug you tight one last time.

I am so sorry you carried this immense pain around that was worse then I saw. I tried to be there for you so much and in the end it wasn’t enough. For that, I am left shattered and heartbroken.

Although, I now know you are always with me and watching over our friends and family. You are flying high with all of our other beautiful angels up above and finally at peace. You deserved the world and then some cuz! Always fun to be around and making me feel safe. You were a big bro to me and I promise to always keep your memory alive. I love you so much Connor❤️‍

Rest In Peace my loving cousin, friend, and “brother”

His Life
Connor Michael Hilpert

    In Loving Memory Always

         August 19, 1997-January 07, 2023

Connor Michael Hilpert, Of Milwaukee, passed away Saturday, January 07, 2023. Tragically died of suicide at the young age of just 25. A life lost way too soon! 

Born to life August 19, 1997 at 7:34am on a sunny Mesa, Arizona morning. 

He was a perfect blonde haired blue eyed baby boy! Slept through the night at five weeks, never had colic or temper tantrums. He truly was an angel as a child! 

His family moved back to Wisconsin as a toddler, where he resided in South Milwaukee, West Allis areas throughout his life. 

Beloved only son of father, Christopher Harold Hilpert and mother, Jessica Elizabeth Hilpert. Big brother to his only little sister, Alexis Jade Hilpert. 

Connor joined his grandmother Rita Kirsch, and cousin Mark Coman and many other family and friends to eternal life. 

Survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, family and friends who truly meant the world to him. 

Connor gained his nickname “Connor Bear” from his god-parents Dave Coman and Paula Kirsch. Connor couldn’t say K, R’s to good as a baby so his god-parents Karen Schabla became “Hunky Haren” and Rick Hilpert was “Uncle Icky”. 

Growing up Connor loved hockey, ice skating, boy scouts, soccer, football, roller skating (he actually got a pair of speed skates for his birthday and said they were “super fly”). He enjoyed online video gaming with his friends, riding bikes with his cousins as kids, camping with his crew of buddies. He loved fishing. He was close to “the boys”, David, Mark (deceased), Joshua and Justin Coman, Austin, Samantha, Ashley and so many more close cousins growing up and shared so many memories of skating down the hills, riding bikes, sledding, sleep overs, egg hunts, and pool days at McCarty Park and so much more! So many summer's with his Auntie Bonnie enjoying the south shore water frolics, beaches and grill outs. 

Connor was filled with so much life, love and a wild free spirit you could not tame! Even getting “born wild” on his knuckles. 

He loved his tattoos, his first was his parents and baby sisters’ initials. His favorite always being the gates of heaven across his neck.

His favorite cologne was Versace. His favorite colors were always crisp white and shades of blues. He loved the George T-shirts and probably should have had stock in them as many as he went through! (LOL)

Connor loved making new meals and always requested mom’s cherry pies, chicken walnut salad, cheesy potatoes and Grandma’s famous banana bread! 

Connor loved animals and had every animal imaginable throughout his life. Kind to all animals, so much so, a duck with a blue painted head followed Connor and his friends all the way home from their high school. We gave him a sudsy bath in the kitchen sink but the paint never did come off. 

Connor and his sister enjoyed a night with him and then we brought him to the humane society were they reentered him back into the wild. 

Connor was so happy and excited to become a big brother to his little sister Alexis. She was born just before he turned eleven. The shine in his eyes the first time he held her was so proud! He got babysitter and CPR certified with the American Red Cross quickly after because he said “I wanna help with my new sister”. He was the best big brother! Always protective of her, calling himself “her solider”. Connor loves you baby sissy and will always be here with you! 

Connor’s teenage years were filled with the best pranks and shenanigans only boys could pull off! From firecrackers to chicken gizzards in cupcake wrappers to naming his belly button “Pablo” and making faces with it. 

He wanted to be a professional street fighter but tussling with his best friend Jesse was all in love. Connor had many fun pool days and lots of “slick tricks” from jumping off the slide, side of the garage, to homemade slip n slides, boys will be boys!

He loved Netflix and had the best action and comedy movies under his profile. Your Mom and sister will continue to enjoy those and remember your hearty laughter. 

Connor attended the Challenge Academy as Cadet Hilpert and was honored as the most improved cadet in his class 33! He went on to graduate South Milwaukee High School with his class of 2016! 

He was gifted with his hands and learned a trade from his father and Uncle Rob of being an electrician since the age of about thirteen. Incredibly talented, accomplishing so many projects. Many all by himself, just don’t let his friends Bobbie or Jared near the jobs…they put all the outlets on backwards and Connor and his dad had to redo the entire job! Connor said, “if you want something done right, do it yourself (LOL)”. Thanks guys! Connor wired all the lights form Churchill Limousine’s two car lots. He had an admirable friendship with Kenny. Always said to his mom, “if this guy can do it, I can do it better! By the way, thanks for all the Mountain Dews, mom did tell you I was a juice hound! (LOL)”.

Connor was loved by everyone! He lit up the room and made everyone laugh. He had the best reels and tic toc’s to share, making everyone crack up! He always had a quick come back and being sarcastic was his super power from his mother! You’re welcome kiddo! 

Connor met the girl who changed his life when he was twelve. McKenna Kazik, Connor called her “Kenna” A few years later they would reconnect at the end of their HS year. Connor found and experienced true love for almost six years. They made wonderful memories, trips, got a cat Kirby together. They cooked new recipes together, Connor’s favorite probably shrimp scampi and stuffed shells. Connor was a foodie boy! 

They shared the same friends and Ashley was his ride or die cousin and McKenna’s best friend. Many game nights and bon fires with his best friends Jesse, Jeremy, Evan, Bobby, Jared, Enea, Adam, Shane, Taylor, Ben, (Devin-deceased) and many more. Mckenna was the love of his life, “the mother to the children he always wanted with her. She was the one!” He loved her with everything he was able to give at that time. 

Connor had a bond with his cousin Ashley that was unbreakable through life's ups and downs. They built so many wonderful memories and shared so much laughter. If only heaven had visiting hours...she'd pitch a tent! I will forever remember these two as kids clearing leaves and Ashley fell over in the leaves laughing cause Connor's butt crack was showing.
Hold tight to the memories until we are all together again. 
 
Connor had a special relationship with his Uncle Ben and Jeff. Loved them and always had their backs! Enjoyed long talks, cold beer and good music with them! 

Connor was/is an amazing man. Smart, sweet, funny and kind. Would help anyone in need and had the biggest heart. We were and are so proud of you! The battles he fought were more powerful than the love any of us could give him! Your battle is over my sweet Connor Bear! We love you so, so much…more than life! We will miss you beyond belief. Forever! Though you left this world behind, the loss of your life will forever leave the world as we know it-heartbroken! We know now the seven of angels has given you the spiritual peace and completeness you were needing and are amongst the angels now. Rest east honey. Fly high my Connor Bear, please watch over us and guide us until we are all together again! We will love you to the moon and back infinity! Kisses to heaven honey! 

Love, Love, Always xoxo

Definitely gone way too soon Connor, there's not a day that will go by that you won't not be on my mind as well as so many others. Life is not always fair or right and has a way of taking us on journeys we sometimes don't expect or don't get to finish. God's your guide now, he will keep you on a safe path free from any worries. I love you so much and most definitely know you are safe with other very special angels and not alone up there. Love always and forever until we meet again, Auntie Paula
