QUIRKY, GOOFY, and GIVING are all terms used to describe Matthew “Connor” Beighley. Born February 21, 2001, to James and Erin Waters Beighley, Connor, after living up to his generous name and donating his organs, he was finally at peace on October 12, 2022.
Connor was a 2019 graduate of Union County High School and a correctional officer at RMC. He was musical; he loved to play instruments, write songs and sing. Connor always lit up while he was playing or listening to music. It didn’t matter the genre or age of the song. He was a huge history buff who enjoyed collecting antiques. Connor was the “King of useless trivia” who was too smart for his own good. A fisherman, animal lover, and a giant among men. Connor was a special young man who would give you the shirt off his back; and if he didn’t have a shirt, he would borrow from someone else to give to you.
He leaves behind the ones that love him most, his parents James (Julie) Beighley and Erin (Randy) Salisbury; his siblings, Brittney, John Michael, Nolan, and Jeremy; grandparents, John and Karen Bridwell, Jack and Phyllis Beighley, and Nancy and Marvin Griffis; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
A Celebration of Connor’s Life will be held at 11:00am on Saturday, October 15th at Archer-Milton Funeral Home. The family will receive friends for a visitation on Friday, October 14th at the funeral home. Arrangements are under the care and direction of Archer-Milton Funeral Home, Lake Butler. 386-496-2008 www.archerfuneralhome.com
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to: Connor Beighley - Fundraising For American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (afsp.org)
