Connor's Story

Connor Graves, 26, passed away July 29, 2016. He was born October 18, 1989, in Presque Isle, the son of Gregory and Rebecca (Murphy) Graves.

Connor grew up the fourth of five boys. He had a wonderful childhood growing up on Fleetwood Street with his brothers, whom he idolized and adored, and his neighbors who loved him like their own. As he grew older, events in his life helped to shape his adolescence, which was challenging, not always fitting the mold, he struggled to find his way. Through it all, he was a loving and compassionate person; he had a kind heart and could brighten anyone's day. He was artistic and a talented writer. So many times over the years it was a dream to develop that talent. Connor was a lover of animals, reading (especially Stephen King), scary movies, good cologne and his beloved Duke Blue Devils. He will be sadly missed by all of those who truly knew and loved him. He was one of a kind.

He is survived by his parents; his brother, Patrick and wife, Chelsea, and their children, Knox and Iris; his brother, Ryan and wife, Stephanie, and their children, Aviana and Adalyn; his brother, Trevor and his children, Wyatt and Gracie; and his special brother, Sean. He is also survived by many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, including a special cousin, Jordie. He was predeceased by his angel in heaven, Logan.

A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Thursday, August 4, 2016, at St. Mary's Catholic Church, Parish of the Precious Blood with the Very Rev. Jean Paul LaBrie, celebrant. Interment will be at Fairmount Cemetery, Presque Isle. Donations may be made in his memory to the Logan Graves Foundation, P.O Box 429, Presque Isle, ME 04769. Online condolences may be shared at
