July 19, 1983 - August 7, 2014 Conor John Finnerty of Spokane, and most recently Seattle, Washington, ascended to Heaven August 7th, 2014 after a fatal car crash. Conor was born in Spokane on July 19th, 1983. Raised by Sandra M. Hoye and the late Terry Finnerty, Conor graduated from Ferris High School in 2001. He was in a loving relationship with Molly McEvoy and engaged to be married. He leaves behind two beautiful children, Cadyn (11) and McKenna (1) Finnerty. Conor was a dedicated and hard-working man. He recently achieved one of his aspirations in becoming an apprentice lineman. We will remember Conor as being a natural athlete and someone who created long-lasting memories and genuine friendships during his short time here with us. He was kind, funny, caring, open-minded, honest, and genuine... he truly had it all. He had a way of making every interaction personal and sincere, and could make a special bond with you within five minutes. His list of friends is endless and timeless; but Conor was a unique and special individual, in which only the lucky ones are graced with once in a lifetime. He listened, he cared, and he would sacrifice anything to help make your life more enjoyable. Conor didn't know it, and didn't try, but he always owned the room. Everyone wanted to be around him and his contagious laugh But what he was best at and what he will be most admired for, was his unwavering dedication to being a great father and family man. He loved his children as much, if not more than anyone. His smile got bigger, and his heart became fuller when he talked about his kiddos. He is very proud of the young man Cadyn is becoming, and his sweet McKenna made his heart so full of love. Conor is survived by his mother Sandra M. Hoye; step father Andrew Hoye; fiancé Molly McEvoy; his two brothers Mike and Kevin Finnerty; dozens of uncles, aunts, and cousins; in laws Mary, Tom, & Chris; his IBEW brothers; and the Mossie Crew. Conor was loved by so many, and has touched so many lives; we have had the honor to see him grow into a wonderful son, man, father, brother, and friend. His passing is a stark reminder of how precious life is - tell someone you love them today. A wake will is being held, at Riverside Place formerly Masonic Center, 1108 W Riverside Ave Saturday, September 13th in the 2nd Floor Ballroom at 4:00pm.
