Bernard William Connors, 76, of Winnett, died on Thursday, March 13, 2014, in Billings.
Bernie was born on April 4, 1937, in Siren, Wis., to Harry and Dorothy Connors.
His family wrote: Bernie was loved dearly by all of those around him, and he always thought of others before himself. Everything that life threw at him paled in comparison to his love for his wife, his children and his grandchildren. As highly in regard as Bernie held his family, his true friends were a close second. Bernie’s wisdom on how to hunt, fish and trap will live on through his family. Bernie was always there to encourage them through their endeavors, and was the first one to comfort them, even if at first they failed to achieve their goals. The passing of this amazing man will leave avoid in all of our lives.”
Bernie is survived by his loving wife, Becky Connors; son and daughter-in-law, Mike and Diane Connors; daughter and son-in-law, Michelle and Timothy Steffans; son and daughter-in-law, Mitchel and Cindy Connors; grandchildren Racquel Steffans, Chantel Shoff, Danielle Connors, Bryan Connors, Amanda Scruggs, Tauri Scruggs and Kayla Landon; and sister Sandra Quarles.
