Connor Del Clay Obituary (1996-2021) – Ogden, UT
Connor Del Clay
Our beloved son, brother, partner, grandson, uncle, nephew, cousin, and friend tragically passed away on November 14, 2021 in Park City, Utah. He was born on June 10, 1996 in Salt Lake City to loving parents and three loving brothers.
Connor grew up in Centerville, Utah and had an idyllic childhood. He attended Viewmont High School where he was an excellent student and graduated in 2014 with an academic scholarship for future university studies. He was an eagle scout. He served an LDS mission in the Peru Concepcion South Mission where he discovered and shared the gospel of Jesus Christ and learned how to love and serve others unconditionally. He attended Utah State University and earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology in 2020. He spent his brief career helping others by working in human resources.
Connor was the best son any parent could ask for. Always ready to help with any task, large or small: from the dangerous hanging up of Christmas lights to the uninvited clearing of the dining table. He was the little brother who always wanted to participate and emulate. His brothers are so proud of the little brother they raised. Connor loved his partner Courtney deeply, who was a devoted and caring mistress. He was extremely loyal to his brothers, cousins, and friends, whose relationships he always loved and cherished. Connor was a darling of his nephews and future nephews – he just loved hanging out with them and they loved him.
Connor’s amazing smile lit up every room he entered. His blue eyes and beautiful blond curly hair were adorable. He had a kind, thoughtful, compassionate, and loving soul. His ubiquitous self-confidence, melodrama and humorous charm made it so much fun to be with him. His natural guidance gave rise to many gatherings of family and friends. He has brought us together for so many fun and wonderful times, and unfortunately this last time.
Connor was a talented athlete and accomplished lacrosse player at Viewmont High School and played on many club teams. He was very fond of his “easy-going” brothers. He also spent countless hours playing games with his brothers, cousins, and friends, whose time is now cherished.
There are no words to express how much Connor is missed from the many lives he has touched.
He is survived by the love of his life, Courtney Aller; Parents Tom and Cherrie Clay; Brothers Casey Clay (Mary), Tyler Clay (Bre), and Chad Clay; Nephews Henry, Brooks, and Sullivan Clay; Grandparents Del and Sue Pease; lots of loving aunts, uncles and cousins. Preceded in death by grandparents Robert and Mildred Clay and cousin Nicolas Bryant Clay.
