The Guest Book is expired.
Connor was born in Hartford on Feb. 12, 1992, son of Kathleen O'Leary Betts, and was loved by all who knew him. Growing up in Suffield, he graduated from Suffield High School in 2010 and then attended Lincoln Tech for diesel technology and received his certification in 2012. He had a great love for farming, which lead to his partnership with Northern Connecticut Combining before he started his own farm, Betts Farm, in Suffield in 2011. His love of fixing trucks, tractors, and other machinery lead him to start his career as a mechanic for Herb Holden Trucking for a couple of years before being hired as a service manager for Folsom Construction LLC, where he was currently working. Connor was also a founding member of QRC renovations. Connor had a passion for football and excelled at the game from the time he began playing organized football at age 6. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing but his greatest joy was spending time with his family and close friends who were blessed by his kindness, warmth, and humor. Connor was always willing to lend a hand and had the great ability to fix anything. He was known for his heart of gold and will be missed dearly by all. He was a 6-foot-3 teddy bear known as "Baby" by his "Mama."
Along with his mother Connor is survived by his four siblings, Colleen Rodriguez, and her husband, Alfredo, Megan Betts, Brian Betts, and Kathryn Betts, all in Suffield. In addition he is survived by a niece, Collinda Rodriquez; a nephew, Nathaniel Rodriquez; his father, Robert Betts of Mashpee, Mass.; and his grandmother, Mary Betts of Palm Beach, Fla. Connor will also be missed by his many aunts, uncles, cousins, and numerous friends with whom he was very close to.
