    Forum members,
    My name is Joseph and I'm the roommate to Connor (@Thegr8punkin). I know he's made many friends in these forums some of which he's had great memories with. It truly saddens me to spread this message but after an unfortunate accident in Connors freshly swapped MR2 on Saturday, he has left this world today. He's spent the past two days hospitalized with family and close friends surrounding him and it was a peaceful death. His organs will be donated and I will keep you all updated with service dates and such. I do know that Connor lived the life he wanted to and wasn't ashamed of helping others who wished to do the same. Take care to all of you and hold your family close.
    ~Joseph

    Staff edit: Event for Connor Friday, 12/7/18 in Colorado

    Oh man... such a knowledgeable young guy. Fun to converse with and I was impressed with his love of cars trucks. He will be missed around here. We lost a valuable member. My heart goes out to his family and friends. This makes me very sad. I’ll miss you Connor! May you rest in peace. Much love brother!

    Thank you Joseph for keeping us updated. Sounds like you are a pretty good friend. I was just wondering why he hasn’t posted in a couple days.

    I guess I didn’t notice he was posting yesterday. So if he was hurt on Saturday... was he coherent in the hospital? I hope this is just a really bad joke.
