Obituary of Dale Anthony Connors
It is great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our father, Dale Anthony Connors, age 68, on Sunday, January 22, 2023 at home. Born in Hantsport, he was the son of the late Howard and Betty (Morgan) Connors.
Dale was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend, who will be deeply missed. He worked in construction his entire life. Spending the majority of his career at Lindsay's Construction, specializing in tilt up buildings. He was a safety officer and foreman. He could be a hard man to work for, but he loved what he did and his crew respected him.
Dad had few passions, but those he had, he enjoyed immensely. In his younger days, hunting with the boys at the camp was something he looked forward to every hunting season. He loved the woods. Having cut the majority of the trails in Falmouth, he loved being out on the ATV but most of all he loved spending time in his garage. That was his happy place and where he spent his final moments.
Dad was married to mom, Cheryl (Henshaw), the love of his life for 43 years. They had a beautiful family together, raising three children and having four beautiful grandchildren.
Besides his wife Cheryl, Dale was survived by his children, Shanna (Jason) Bauchman, Mt. Denson; Sarah (Nevin) Armstrong, Wedgeport and Anthony Connors, Mt. Denson; grandchildren, Tori Carson, Brock Connors, Lucas and Connor Armstrong. He is also survived by sisters, Mona (Jake) Deman, Belmont; Joy Murphy, Port Williams; Debbie (Paul) Connors, Canning and Angela (Stephen) Connors, Windsor.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his parents-in-law, Earl and Winnifed Henshaw; sister-in-law, Gloria Sherman and his beloved golden retriever, Keely, his best bud.
