Brian O’Connor

Late Monday, August 15th, 2022, Brian O’Connor, incredible human and renaissance man, passed away. He was 64. Brian was born to John and Mikey O’Connor on March 2, 1958. He attended the Academy, Del Norte High, and graduated from The University of New Mexico. He was an established artist and carpenter, scholar, stand out athlete, benevolent activist, and Prince of Dogs. He was foremost a devoted husband to Iva, a wonderful father to Lillian and Garrett, a true friend to everyone, beloved by all. Brian was always teaching us and always will.  He’s left behind the most priceless achievement of any person; more grace, beauty and understanding in this world. Brian was preceded in death by his father, John. He is survived by his mother Mikey, his wife Iva, his two children Garrett and Lillian, his brother Sean, and nephews Dylan, Jason, and Jesse. A celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, August 20th, 2022 at his home in Las Nutrias, NM. Donations may be sent to the Scholarship Fund in Brian’s name for the Harwood Arts Center, to continue the pursuit of dreaming for every young artist.
