Obituary of Conor Alderman
Conor D. Alderman
Our beautiful son and brother died on Thursday, November 9 of a drug overdose. He was taken from our lives far to soon. Outwardly Conor was a quick witted, fun loving human being, but on the inside he was a sensitive soul who could never be completely honest about his struggles. We loved Conor with all our hearts, but we know we could not shield him from this disease. The worry that we felt watching Conor struggle has now been replaced by a deep sense of loss knowing we will not be able to see his smiling face and to tell him once more that we love him. Conor tried his best to take the right steps to change his life, but ultimately he lost his battle and is now another heartbreaking reminder of the heroin epidemic in this country. It is our family's hope that the cruel disease of addiction will trend toward a broader degree of acceptance and destigmatization.
Conor is survived by his parents Douglas and Susan Alderman, his sister Morgan, and his younger brother Hunter. He is also survived by his grandparents Arthur and Henrietta Adams, uncles Art Adams and his wife Dawn, William Adams and his wife Kathleen, Lawrence Alderman and his wife Dorothy, aunts, Helen Collen and her husband George, Elsie Kaptiena and her husband Henry, Jackie Mihalek and her husband Mark, Cathy Bystrowski and her husband Andy, and Peggy Adams. He is also survived by many cousins and his beloved dog Diesel.
A Christian Mass will be held on Saturday, November 18 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Maurice's Church located at 358 Glenbrook Road, Stamford, CT. All services will be held at the church and no calling hours will be held.
