Connor was a young man who lived his short life to the fullest. He was kind, funny, athletic, and intelligent. Connor was tall in stature and in heart - a light in the lives of everybody who knew him.
Connor was born and raised in Edmonton, AB, and spent many summers with family in Gibsons, BC. He was an accomplished athlete having played competitive hockey and lacrosse throughout his childhood. Connor was always surrounded by his friends while working, biking and playing his guitar. After high school, Connor went on to play lacrosse for Salisbury University in Maryland, USA, where he also earned a degree in Business and won a NCAA Championship. In 2015, Connor moved to Baltimore, MD, and worked for Morgan Stanley as a financial analyst. In Baltimore, he once again surrounded himself with friends who loved him and were loved by him. He was a humble comedian who enjoyed making others laugh.
Connor will be lovingly remembered and missed by his parents Brad and Lesli Anderson (nee Geikie); his sister Erin and his girlfriend, Mariah Burk. Connor is predeceased by his grandfather Donald Anderson. Also left to mourn his passing are his loving grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, coaches, and friends. Connor was a light that was extinguished too soon.
The Miners Lacrosse Club competes this summer for the Connor Anderson Cup, in memory of Connor's contributions to the Miners club, his teammates, and the lacrosse community here in Edmonton.
