Duane Woods of Cedar Hills, our coolest buddy, left this
earthly life to serve his mission on the other side on September
25th, 2010 at the age of 19.
Connor was born on June 21st, 1991 in Cedar City, UT to
Duane and Lisa Woods. He attended American Fork High School.
He was currently working at Ideasphere (aka Twin Labs)`
in American Fork as a maintenance mechanic. He attended
the College of Western Idaho and then also UVU. He attained
his Eagle Scout rank in June of 2009. Connor loved the scouting
program. As soon as he turned 12, he was so excited to start
earning merit badges. His first year of scout camp, he was
so motivated, that instead of playing, he was able to earn
several merit badges. He ended up with 32 merit badges.
His Eagle Service Project was to help the homeless people
in Boise, ID. He planned, organized and coordinated the
efforts of many. The donations were so greatly needed and
so appreciated. The people could not believe what he had
done for them.
Connor had the coolest personality. He was the most non
judgmental and easygoing kid anyone could ever meet. Friendship
and adventure came easy to him. He was nice to everyone
and, in turn, all who met him loved him. He was always happy
and joyful, living life to the fullest. He loved hanging
out with his cousins, hiking, and skateboarding. Anything
that sounded like fun, he was game. His unique spirit will
be missed greatly by family and friends alike.
He is survived by his parents Duane K. & Lisa M. Woods
of Cedar Hills, sisters Candice and Cristal Woods, brothers
Clinton, Clay and Carson Woods, his "g-ma" Sondra
Akins of St. George, Utah, nana Nellie Montoya of St. George,
and Grandpa Don and Grandma Lenora Woods of Perris, CA and
his beloved cockatiel “Geronimo”. He is also
survived by his Aunt Denise, Uncle Donald & Aunt Sandy,
Uncle Dean & Aunt Jill of St. George, UT., his Aunt
Angie and Uncle Jerry of Herriman, UT., Uncle Scott of LaVerne,
