Connor Robert Reynolds was the youngest of 5 children born December 23, 1994 and raised in Grove City Ohio. Connor had a big smile with a heart to match it. His beautiful blue eyes and copper hair only added to his charm. Connor always lived life to the fullest, often with grandiose ideas and a carefree attitude. He was very generous and would have given anyone his last dollar if they needed it.
Unfortunately, Connor did not always make great decisions nor associate with people who had had his best interest in mind. Connor was the victim of a senseless crime in the early hours of June 27, 2018 when he was intentionally shot as he opened the front door of the house in which he was staying. He was then driven by an acquaintance to Riverside Methodist Hospital where he arrived in critical condition as a level 1 trauma. In an attempt to save Connor’s life he received numerous transfusions of blood products both in the emergency department and during surgery. Ultimately, Connor succumbed to his injuries.
We are coming upon the second anniversary of Connor’s death. Our family is forever fractured by losing him. To honor our son, brother, and uncle that we love and miss dearly, we are encouraging those who are able to donate blood to consider doing so in Connor’s memory. Generous individuals selflessly gave in an effort to save Connor’s life, it is our hope that others would consider doing the same.
Please join Connor’s Crew and help us to give back!
