Obituary


Connor Girby Kelly was born October 5th, 2004 and passed from this world on November 26th, 2016. Connor lived life like his hair was on fire.

Connor Girby Kelly was born October 5th, 2004 and passed from this world on November 26th, 2016. Connor lived life like his hair was on fire. To him, every day was meant to be lived like it was going to be your last. His motto was “Love life, live life”. He played football and lacrosse, both sports that he came to fiercely love. He dabbled in soccer and baseball and was intent on trying every sport that he could. He loved comics, Japanimation, cosplay, and playing video games with his cousins or his father. And Mardi Gras, well, there can’t be enough said about how he loved Mardi Gras. When it came to learning, he was a straight A student and in the gifted program. If he slowed down, it was to watch YouTube videos, learning how to do anything and everything he could, or you could find him reading a Harry Potter book. Most children’s goals change as often as their clothes. Connor wanted to be an engineer from the time he was 6. And not just any engineer. He wanted to be Tony Stark. He wanted all the engineering degrees like Tony Stark and he wanted to invent the first real Iron Man suit. His mind never faltered on this. He is and always will be his parents’ hero.



He is survived by his parents, Richard and Spring Kelly, his Grandfather, Michael Girby, Sr., his Grandmother (bà n?i), Hong Cam Kelly, his Uncle, Michael Girby, Jr., his Aunt and Uncle, Erin Girby Pugh and Michael Pugh, and cousins, David Hamilton, Alex Hamilton, Gracie Girby, Kourtney Pugh, Anne Girby, Claire Girby, Emma Girby, Michael Pugh, Jr., William Girby, and Brantley Pugh.
