John Joseph Connor: Newspaper Obituary and Death Notice
Duluth News Tribune (MN) - Friday, April 25, 2008
Deceased Name: John Joseph Connor
MN United States

John Joseph Connor, 67 of Cloquet, died in his home on April 23, 2008. John was born in 1941 to Lester and Mae Connor in Crystal, N.D. Later he moved with his family to Chippewa Falls, Wis., then attended elementary school where his attendance was shortened by epilepsy. When grown and stronger, he worked roofing homes with his brothers, William and Lester, Jr. After some years he worked at the city's rendering plant before moving to Duluth, then Cloquet, living with his sister, Myrna and husband, Robert, the last 40 years of his life. While living in Duluth he worked for Barko Hydraulics as a steel plate shearer, with and under the watchful eye of his brother and co-worker, Myron. John's voice was gruff, but he had a gentle demeanor. He demonstrated patience when assembling jig-saw puzzles, found ways of moving four foot wide furniture through three foot doorways. He quietly observed one's mistakes, then sprung the simple solution. He put his arm around you and bragged. Then he smiled; he was a humble person. He preferred the name of John; instead he was affectionately called Johnny. Preceding him in death were his parents and older brother, William. John is survived by five sisters, Myrna (Robert) Botz of Cloquet, Beverly (James) Bachler of Salome, Arix., Jeanette (Larry) Grad of Eau Clair, Wis., Theresa (John) Watkins of Chehalis, Wash., and Sandra (Ed) Barnes of Mennomonee, Wis.; three brothers, Lester, Jr. (Elizabeth) Connor of Chippewa Falls, Wis., Myron (Joanne) Connor of Duluth and James (Jeanne) Connor of Republic, Wash.; and many nephews, nieces and cousins. The family wishes to thank St. Lukes Hospice for their loving care. VISITATION:5 to 7 p.m. with a 7 Prayer Service, Friday, April 25, 2008 in Northland Funeral Home, 801 14th Street, Cloquet. Visitation will continue Saturday, April 26, 2008 from 10 a.m. until the 11 a.m. Funeral Service in Northland Funeral Home followed by a luncheon in the Fireside Room of the funeral home. Interment will be at Maple Grove Cemetery, Cloquet. To sign the guestbook and leave an online tribute, see www.northlandfuneralhome.com.
