Conner Chase Barton, 12, passed away on June 11, 2023, at Nemours Children's Hospital in Orlando, FL. after a long battle with osteosarcoma.
Conner was born on July 31, 2010, in Washington Township, NJ to Kevin and Cristina (Dimter) Lively.
Conner attended Independence Academy in Dover, Kathleen Elementary, and was homeschooled. He was a member of Plant City Church of God. He played flag football for Highland Park Sports, and Baseball for the city of Mulberry. Conner enjoyed kayaking, fishing, camping, and anything to do with being outdoors, as he absolutely loved it. He enjoyed Legos, playing his Xbox, drawing, painting, and music. He was especially fond of Morgan Wallen, Mercy Me, and Casting Crowns.
Conner was preceded in death by his grandfathers, David Lively and Ray Barton Sr.
Conner is survived by his loving mother, Cristina, and stepfather, Justin Lively, father, Kevin Barton, his siblings, Breanna (Jason) Gaddy, William Lively, Nickolas Hondros, Chloe and Corbin Lively, his grandparents, Nanci and Joseph Dimter, Cheri Lively and Lorraine Koch, numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and beloved friends. He leaves behind his beloved animals, Kane, Tracker, Gunner, and Maverick. Despite his grueling fight with cancer, Conner had a beautiful smile that would light up the room.
