Conner Delong Died in a car accident Accident
Conner Delong died in a car accident on a Wednesday night on October 20, 2021. His death was confirmed by his friend, Caolan Hoff who wrote in a Facebook post,
“Hey gents, we lost one of our own on Wednesday night in Conner DeLong in a car accident. I’ll update this with service details for anyone that wants to attend as soon as I know.
For those that don’t know him, he was a quality defender for the ’08 graduating class that nearly led us to a championship run. He went on to play at Marian College but I personally feel had the potential to play at a higher level. RIP Conner DeLong.”
Caolan Hoff made an update in a follow up to the original post writing,
“Hey fellas, it doesn’t look like there will be a public service for Conner. It seems his brother left town yesterday so it’s likely a small family gathering already occurred. We don’t have close ties to the family so getting secondary information through another close family friend.
I talked with another group of guys about getting together and sharing memories, etc. Might be nice to all sign a card or something for his parents. I know a lot of you played with him growing up, carpooled, etc. Wish I had better news.”
The last update from Caolan on November 2nd, reads, “Hey guys, so we’re gonna make a book of positive memories for Conner’s parents. If you want to text me/send me a DM with how you met Conner and a positive memory you have of him, I’d appreciate it. Also, share with folks that you think might be able to contribute or aren’t on Facebook. Not looking to publicly share anything bc I think his family would have had a public service if they wanted the attention but I think this momento will be nice to look back on.”
