“…it is with heavy heart that I inform you that Gunner Connor passed away on 11 April 2022.”
(quote from MCDSA President Danny Burke)
A burial service with military honors will be held for Gunner Connor at 1430 on Wednesday 04 May 2022 at Quantico National Cemetery 18424 Joplin Road Triangle, VA 22172
“Greg Connor earned his Distinguished Marksman Badge in 1962, and was a versatile and consistent shooter who served four decades in the Marine Corps. Successful as both a rifle and pistol coach, Connor is pictured here after winning the 1974 Wimbledon Cup title at the National Matches. In 1986, shortly after retiring from the Corps, Connor won another prestigious 1,000-yard match at Camp Perry, the iron-sight Leech Cup.“
