Help Tim Connors' family with bereavement costs

Donation protected
Our father Timothy Charles Connors III unexpectedly passed away on the evening of Tuesday, January 18th, 2022.

Tim is survived by his loving wife Shawn Connors (née Gorden), his eldest son James and fiancée Genna, and youngest daughter Jennafer. He will be dearly missed by his siblings Trisha Moore, Maryanne Aud, and Jimmy Connors as well as each of his nieces, nephews, and extended family. 

Tim lived with an unabashed sense of joy and humor in even the most mundane. He laughed freely and often. Tim’s gregarious nature made him a magnet to all who had the pleasure of meeting him, but his priority and focus was building the best life he could for his family. He and Shawn began their journey together at the age of 17. Through the decades they lived for each other, for new experiences, and to live life to the fullest. Their love was the foundation for a beautifully supportive family and 42 amazing years of marriage. 

Tim was also the primary breadwinner for himself and my mother, who is now faced with the reality of trying to grieve and heal, while also finding a way to cover the expenses of their household and of Tim's final arrangements. This fundraiser is to help offset some of the bereavement costs for his family during these difficult times. We know Tim was very loved, and we are so thankful for any help you can provide. 

Tim’s laughter, wisdom, and legacy will live on in the hearts of his family members and friends. Raise a glass to Timothy Charles and remember life is too short for anything less than happy. 

Expenses that my mom will need help with include:
- Cremation and funeral home expenses: $6500
- Non-covered medical bills for both my mom and dad surrounding his passing: $3500
- A celebration of life for close family: $500
- Travel expenses for family to come say their final goodbyes to Tim from out of town: $600
- First few months of grief counseling for my mom: $1000
If we hit or surpass our goal, we would like to set up a memorial bench in Baker Park where my mom and dad used to walk so that my mom has somewhere to sit and talk to dad: $3500
