Help Support University Police Officer David Connors Family

Thursday, March 30, 2017

Brother & Sisters –

It is with great sadness that I bring to your attention a matter which has profoundly impacted the children of one of our family members.

Some of you may remember the passing of University police officer David Connors (Cortland UPD) who died in an off-duty car accident, in 2009. Officer Connors left behind a wife and three children.

Last week, Officer Connor’s wife, Boni Jane, also passed away, unexpectedly and tragically. Her children Aubrey Nicole (18), Amber Elizabeth (15) and Alyssa Jane (8), quite obviously, are devastated. Boni’s family have set up a Go Fund Me account (link below) in effort to cover immediate moving expenses and to help secure the girls immediate future.

Please help Dave’s children, and to donate to their Go Fund Me account. 

Finally, I would also like to ask for everyone’s prayers for Aubrey, Amber and Alyssa. Losing a parent is devastating for any child but losing both parents has to be a child’s absolute worst nightmare. These children need all the love and support they can receive during this terrible time.  This link will only be live through April 10. To continue to donate, please mail a check directly to the Connors family account as follows:

Make check payable to: 'Boni Yattaw Conners Fund'. Be sure to write 'Gift' in the memo (as this will be a tax deductible donation)

Mail to: Cap Com Federal Credit Union, 4 Winners Circle, Albany, NY 12205

Thank you for your time and compassion in this matter.
