Connor Scott Johnson, 25, of West Simsbury, son of Scott and Lisa (Pitchford) Johnson, passed away Tuesday, November 29, 2016. Born in Hartford, he was raised in Simsbury. He graduated from the Master's School in 2010 and also attended Simsbury High School and The Academy at Swift River. He enjoyed playing soccer and rugby while in school. He was active at Valley Brook Community Church where he was passionate about working with young people and was a volunteer leader with the high school youth group and summer camps. He also served on several mission trips and participated in the Hartford Project. He enjoyed working outdoors as a landscaper and was most recently employed by Simsbury Enrichment and Extended Day Program. He enjoyed writing, listening to music and always enjoyed spending time with his dogs Jake and Brady. He loved rooting for the Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics and the UCONN Huskies. The thing Connor loved the most was spending time with his family! Besides his parents, Scott and Lisa, he leaves a brother Tyler Johnson of San Diego, CA; a sister Emily Johnson of West Simsbury; his grandparents, Robert and Janet Pitchford of Winter Springs, FL; Dianne Lank of Charleston, SC, and Mary Johnson of Tariffville, CT; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was predeceased by his grandfather Dave Johnson. Connor faced many challenges in his life. He battled cancer twice and dealt with mental health and addiction issues which ultimately cost him his life. Our prayer is that Connor's life story will have purpose and save lives in the future. His family will receive friends Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016, from 5-8 pm at the Carmon Funeral Home & Family Center, 301 Country Club Road, Avon. A Memorial Service will be held Sunday, December 4, 2016. At 2:30 pm at the Valley Brook Community Church, 160 Granville Road, North Granby. Burial will be at the convenience of the family in St, Bernard's Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the Johnson Family has set up a Memorial Fund on behalf of Connor which supports To Write Love on Her Arms, a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide.
