Nicholas John Conner
Nicholas John Conner, 48, passed away at his residence on July 8. Born in Coldwater, Michigan, his military career took him all over the world; but he considered Gatesville home.
Nick served twenty years in the Army, retiring at the rank of Master Sergeant. During seven deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq, he was awarded four Bronze Stars and multiple commendations for valiant service to his country. Like too many of his fellow wounded warriors, Nick lost his final battle and succumbed to PTSD.
Nick is survived by the love of his life, Robyn, his wife of 24 years; and his pride and joy, his children, Dannie and Jacob; his mother, Ahnee and his siblings, Christopher, Eileen Falcone, Gregory, Samuel, Andrew, and Joseph. He is mourned by a large extended family, as well.
Due to COVID restrictions, a service with full military honors followed by a celebration of Nick’s life will be conducted at a future date.
