CONNER, CHRISTOPHER EDWARD "CHRIS" "CHRIS-GO" 43 - of Ventnor City went home to be with the Lord on March 29th, 2014. Born and raised in Atlantic City, New Jersey, Chris was a lover of his family and his friends known as his "Duck town Brothers". However, there was no greater joy in his life than being a proud father to his only son Nicholas, who passed away tragically in August of 2011. Nicholas Christopher Conner was one of the "Mainland 4" football players, and was known by his permanent loving smile and famous for his wide open arms. Chris would always be willing to help others at any given time. He was the kind of guy everyone would want to be around, especially when it came to sports and family. His kind heart, gentle soul, and caring ways made everyone who knew him memorable. His signature call of "Yerp" let you know Chris was on the spot. He valued hard work and was involved with Labor & Construction. As he matured, Chris developed into a good Christian man, grew closer to God, studied the Bible and devoted his life to Jesus. Chris is survived by one sister, Jamie L. Conner of Atlantic City, NJ; his aunt, Donna Conner of Egg Harbor Township, NJ; his uncle, Robert Edward Conner of Ventnor City, NJ; the mother of his only son, Cristina Barrella-Meoli of Atlantic City, NJ; his oldest nephew, Pedro Gonzalez; three younger nephews; two younger nieces; his "Duck town Boys" crew, JohnnyBoy Cavalieri, Shawn Prince, Bobby & Jay Herrin, Bruce & Mary Herrin, and Tracy Jeffries, all of the Duck town area of Atlantic City, NJ; and a host of other loving relatives and many friends.
