Obituary

William Carlton Connell, Jr.

William Carlton Connell, Jr., of South Brunswick, Virginia, born July 18, 1957, died peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family on August 10, 2017. “Carl” as he was affectionately known by his family and friends, worked for Woodman Life Insurance Company for over 33 years. It was during that time he helped build the East Virginia Youth Camp. An avid outdoorsman, Carl loved to cook, fish and hunt and could often be found doing all three with his buddies at Taylor Mill Hunt Club in Emporia. A man of few words, he was never interested in praise but was always doing good deeds.

Carl is survived by his wife of 41 years, Ann; a son Andrew, and wife Krystle; daughter Lesley Nunn, husband Patrick. Perhaps his greatest joys in life were his five grandchildren, Drew Connell, Kelsey Carter, Harper and Van Walker Nunn, and the newest addition, Ava Marie Connell. He enjoyed school programs, football, softball and baseball games, golf tournaments and having them visit the farm.  He is also survived by his mother and father, Carlton and Ella Connell; two sisters, Amy Clary and her husband David, Beverly Washburn and her husband Kent; one niece, Laura Eddings and her husband Chris, and three nephews Chase and Alex Clary, and Collin Washburn.  Funeral services will be conducted 2:00 p.m. Saturday at Williams Funeral Home, Lawrenceville with interment at James Square Baptist Church Cemetery.  The family will receive friends Friday from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Williams Funeral Home, Lawrenceville.
