Charles Sheridan Conner

Charles Sheridan Conner, Affectionately known by many as Papa Chuck, passed away at 45 years of age on May 24, 2009 during an annual celebration with family and friends at Elderberry Flats.

He was raised in Fossil, Ore., by his parents Isabel and Robert Conner.

Papa Chuck is survived by his wife, Leah (41), sons, Kevin (27) and Patrick (10) and daughter, Kelly (23). Together, Chuck and Leah developed a strong following of friends and neighbors. Their home will continue to provide a hub for activities ranging from everyday chat to vehicle repair, staging for motorcycle rides, and planned events such as their infamous super bowl parties. Papa Chuck was known to be easy going and carefree. There was never a moment that he couldn't find the positive side of things. He knew just what to say in every moment. Papa Chuck will be missed and his spirit will be carried forth in the hearts of all who knew him.

Private services will be held for all friends and family. In lieu of flowers, please send tax deductible donations in support of Patrick's tuition to Harvest Baptist Christian School: 2001 S. Columbus Ave. Medford, OR 97501
