Obituary

Gene Conner, 83, of Robinson, was born November 2, 1935 at home on The Wright Place, in Longview Texas, to parents Roy Lee Conner Sr. and Margaret Bertha Walker, and passed away at home with his son Richard and grandson Garrett by his side on June 8, 2019 at 2:00 pm.
Funeral services will be held at 12:00 PM Saturday June 15, at First Baptist Church of Robinson, 104 E. Stegall Drive, Robinson, Texas.

Gene attended Waco Tech High and worked at Genham’s Drug before and after school where he would open the drug store and even compound drugs for the pharmacist. After his father passed away, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy at the age of 16 (although the Navy thought that he was older) in December of 1951. He was first assigned to the USS Pine Island. He left the Navy the first time in 1961 and returned to Waco where he met Linda Darlene Buckner while they both worked at the First National Bank of Waco and they married on December 29, 1962, and had a son Richard Lee Conner.

He reenlisted in the Navy in 1964 where he served aboard the USS Niagara Falls. He was later stationed on NAS Midway Island in the Pacific as a senior enlisted with the highest security clearance on the island, where he was able to be accompanied by his wife and son. He ended his Naval career as a Chief Petty Officer, with the Naval Justice Center at NAS Corpus Christi Texas, where he retired and moved his family to Robinson, Texas.

Gene became a man at the age of 15 and from that point on carried the responsibilities of an adult. And strived to do nothing but the best every time. He was incredibly devoted to his wife Darlene and son Richard and grandson Garrett.

He was proceeded in death by his wife, Linda Darlene Conner, mother, Bertha Conner, father Roy lee Conner Sr., brothers Roy lee Conner Jr., Homer Conner, sisters, Jewel (Conner) Donaghe, Joyce (Conner) Thomas.

He is survived by his son, Richard Conner, grandson, Garrett Conner, son, Gene Hurley, and numerous nieces and nephews.
