Steve ConnorOctober 13, 1956 ~ October 30, 2021 (age 65)
Steve Connor, 65, a lifelong resident of Crossett, passed away on Saturday, October 30, 2021, at his home. He was born on October 13, 1956, and was a graduate of Crossett High School.
For over thirty years, Steve worked at Georgia Pacific, where he operated a winder in the tissue mill.
In his free time, Steve loved to tinker with things. If it had a motor, he raced it, if it could be built, he probably built it. He was known by many as a jack of all trades. His deepest passion was definitely building and flying remote-controlled airplanes. He was an active member of the NEARC Flying Tigers in West Monroe, LA, and the Southeast Arkansas Aero Radio Modelers Club in Monticello for many years.
When he wasn’t flying, you could often find Steve not too far from his grill. He was a proud “pitmaster” who took great pleasure in preparing mouthwatering meals for his family and friends, all most likely while talking. Steve loved to talk and could carry on a conversation for hours on any topic. He was a knowledgeable, independent, and headstrong man, a friend you could always count on, and a dedicated and loving father to his son, who he loved dearly.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Roy and Irene Elizabeth Connor. He leaves behind one son, Klint Connor (Randee Jo Langley) of Crossett; one brother, James Connor of Hamburg; and one sister, Debbie Menapace (Tim) of Crossett; and one aunt, Velma Jean Willis; along with one niece, Janet Eppinette (Brad) of Downsville, LA; two nephews, Ed Connor of West Monroe, LA, and Michael Menapace (Whytnie) of Crossett; and aunt and uncle, Glenn and Kathaleen Willis also of Crossett.
A family led memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, November 6th at the First Free Will Baptist Church, 1301 Mimosa St., in Crossett with Pastor Joey Johnson officiating.
