Connor Davis Keane, 17, of Mooresville, N.C., passed away on Friday, December 31, 2021, at Atrium Health, Charlotte.
Born March 6, 2004, in Mecklenburg County, he was a very special son of John Thomas and Michelle Hunter Keane. He was a beloved student at Mooresville High School.
Connor, who possessed an infectious smile and laugh coupled with the occasional raspberry, over the years developed a love of Mozart, adaptive skiing, equine therapy and, yes, even going to school.
Connor touched the hearts of everyone who had the pleasure of meeting him; he knew no strangers and left those lucky enough to have known him inspired with a new meaning of unconditional love.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his brothers, Hunter and Sean Keane; paternal grandparents, Ronald and Donna Keane, of Mt. Pleasant, S.C.; maternal grandparents, Lance and Phyllis Hunter, of Locust, N.C.; aunts, Kate Lewis (Daniel), of Mt. Pleasant, S.C., Kim Lantz (Keith), of Stanfield, N.C., and Alisha Ritchie (Brandon), of Stanfield, N.C.; and cousins, Kyle, Zack, Abby, Will, Amelia and Jack.
Connor’s family would like to thank the PICU medical teams at Hemby Children’s Hospital, Levine Children’s Hospital; his recent home health nurses, Charlene Gabree, Janette Lively, and Christy Madonna, all with Angels of Care Pediatric Home Health; the CAP-C care management team at Quality Health Care Services; and the teachers and staff of Mooresville High School’s Learning Lab.
A celebration of Connor’s life will be held Saturday, January 22, 2022, at 1 p.m. at the Day Chapel, St. Therese Catholic Church in Mooresville with a reception immediately following.
In lieu of flowers to memorialize Connor, donations may be made to Make-A-Wish of Central & Western North Carolina.
