It is with deep sadness and pain that our family announces the passing of Connor Alexander Gillmore, age 22, on Monday, December 3, 2018 at North Colorado Medical Center. He was born October 7, 1996 in Denver, CO to Travis and Jennifer (Artery) Gillmore.
He grew up in Greeley from the age of seven. He attended St. Mary Catholic School through the 8th grade and graduated from Greeley West High School in 2015. While in high school, Connor was a member of the swimming team specializing in the butterfly. He also helped design and build sets for all of the GWHS theatrical performances.
Connor was employed by Gusher Oilfield Services. He had a brilliant mind, a wonderful sense of humor and always wanted to make people laugh. He was a loving son and a terrific big brother. He loved working on his Toyota vehicles and he had just finished his latest project – the MR2. Connor enjoyed off-roading in his 4Runners and was a member of the Larimer County Four Wheel Drive Club – The Mountaineers.
Connor had a big heart and made the courageous decision to be an organ and tissue donor. He will live on through the lives of the five organ recipients.
Connor is survived by his parents, Travis and Jennifer Gillmore of Greeley; sister, Meghan; brothers, Caden and Carson; grandparents, Glen and Jan Gillmore of Manhattan, KS and Sharon Artery Staff of Lake Bluff, IL; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather, Michael Artery.
Recitation of the Rosary will be at 9:30 a.m. followed by Funeral Mass at 10:00 a.m. Monday, December 10, 2018 at St. Mary Catholic Church, 2222 23rd Avenue.
