CONNORS - It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of John Arthur "Art" Connors formerly of 40 Currie Ave. at Rocmaura Nursing Home on Sunday, July 8, 2007, after a courageous battle. Art was born in Saint John, a son of the late John D. and Annie F. (Butler) Connors. He had been employed as a brakeman with the C.P.R. and foreman with J. A. Likely Ltd. He retired as an inspector with Agriculture Canada in 1984 after 15 years of service. He served overseas with the Provost Corp from 1940 to 1946. He was a member of Royal Canadian Legion Branch 69 and the Adanac Club (life member). Art was very close to his family and friends and enjoyed getting together for good times. He loved his camp at Buckley's Cove. He was always up for such adventures as family camping trips and traveling the country to visit children and grandchildren. He was a great story teller with an amazing memory, and a wonderful sense of humor. He never forgot where he came from, and his roots in Petersville. Art was very religious, a faithful parishioner of St. Pius X for over 40 years, and it stood him well during many life crises. He was predeceased by his first wife, Margaret (McCarthy) Connors, in 1974; his second wife, Alice (McGillicuddy) Connors, in 2004; two sons, J. Kevin and Brian G.; four brothers, Gerry, Charles, Philip, and Lewis Connors; and a sister, Rita Connors. He is survived by three sons, John D. (Brenda), Raymond J. (Michele), and Mark P. (Christine), all of Saint John; three daughters, Sharon A. Steblyk (Lester) of Spruce Grove, AB., Brenda Wilson (Peter) of Oakville, Ont., and Maureen Connors (Andre Landreville) of Ottawa; four sisters, Pauline McDade of Saint John, Mary Voorhees (Bill) of Bath, Me., Rose McMillan (William) of Oakville, Ont., and Eleanor Connors of Victoria, B.C.; nine grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. Resting at Fitzpatrick's Funeral Home, 100 Waterloo St., with visiting on Wednesday and Thursday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9. Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Pius X Church on Friday morning at eleven o'clock. Interment will take place in Holy Cross Cemetery.
