    I remember in Spanish class in 9th grade when he blurted out “Everyone wants to be a Daigle Bagel”, and every time I saw him through high school, he would shout that out and we would laugh so hard. Amazing man and gone too soon.

      Senior year we sat together with Samantha Stephens in AP Chem and all we would do everyday is talk the whole period. I got to run into him a few times at 10 Fitness last summer where we talked for forever catching up. I’ll always be glad I got to see him again.

    I am really saddened to learn this news of Connor’s passing. He was in my history class in the fall at ASUB, and I oftentimes saw him at the gym in Cabot. He was a hard worker, open minded, and a nice guy. My prayers go out to his family and friends.

  • Qifang He Posted May 15, 2020 6:56 PM

    What a shocking bad news! I am Connor’s instructor in ASU-Beebe. He took my physics classes for two semesters. I just give him the second A few days ago. In my class, Connor was very good student. He is polite but quiet and “low-key” boy. I like him very much … …
    Please accept my condolence. I will remember my dear student Connor.

    You were a great man. You were shy most of the time and never said much but when you did you always had something to say that cracked everyone up. I will cherish the memories we shared in JROTC and the memories shared together with friends. Rest in peace brother. I be praying for the family and loved ones to get through these tragic times.
