James "Jim" Conner

April 21, 1933 ~ July 20, 2022 (age 89) 89 Years Old


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of James “Jim” Conner at the Kingston Health Sciences Centre - KGH on Wednesday, July 20, 2022. Beloved husband of Trudy (nee Veley). Cherished father of Jeff (Julie). Loving grandfather of Phillip and Emily. Predeceased by his parents Kenneth and Vera Conner, son Terry and his siblings Kenneth (late Mary), Gordon (late Betty) and Bruce (late Betty).

James Dale Conner was born on April 21, 1933, the youngest of four boys. He was 89 years old. He lived a long, vibrant and healthy life through most of his time with us. Jim was a faithful Christian, loving husband, father, grandfather and a revered uncle. He was a great friend to many, and a respected member of the community. He was also an esteemed Pipe Fitter and member of the Union from a young man until his retirement. He had a cheerful, generous and giving demeanor with everyone he knew. He was always willing to lend a hand and was loved by all who knew him. He loved children and was always able to draw them near with his playful, comical and teasing nature. 

Jim was most happy in the great outdoors. Whether it was around home, far up north or east to Labrador, Jim spent his personal time doing what he loved most, fishing, hunting and camping with close family and friends. He lived life to the fullest and enjoyed every part of it that he could. God Bless and may he rest in peace.

Visitation will be held at the Milestone Funeral Center, Northbrook on Sunday, July 24, 2022 from 12:00 – 2:00 pm. Funeral Service to follow in the chapel at 2:00 pm. The family would appreciate donations either made in Jim’s memory to a charity of choice or a monetary donation would be accepted for Trudy's ongoing care. Online condolences, photos and memories can be shared at
