William A Conner
William (Bill) A. Conner, 88, passed away peacefully on October 5, 2021. He was born September 15, 1933 to parents Roy Conner and Rosetta (Durst) Conner in Warren, Ohio. Bill graduated from Warren G Harding High School then went on to serve in the Navy during the Korean War. He worked for Copperweld as an electrician for 30 years. Bill married Donna Winans on February 1,1958.
Bill is survived by his wife Donna; son Mark (Heather) of Warren, daughter Debra (Michael) of Warren and brother Melvin (Willie) of Bazetta. There are also 8 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.
Bill’s biggest impact on the community was coaching Little League baseball for over 8 years. He also loved to fish and pitch softball in local work leagues. His hobbies shifted more towards golf and fishing after retirement from Copperweld.
By far the biggest impact was with his family. Bill shared his love of golf, fishing, and baseball with his wife, children, and grandchildren. After retirement Bill and his wife Donna became Florida residents as snowbirds. Later in life, Bill and Donna returned to live in Cortland to be closer to family. Bill was an avid Cleveland Browns, Indians, and Ohio State Buckeye fan. Most of all Bill was a loving husband of 63 years to his wife Donna. He will be dearly missed.
Calling hours will be Thursday October 14, 2021 at 12 noon with funeral service following at 1pm at Crown Hill Chapel Mausoleum Vienna, Ohio. Burial will take place following service.
