Columbia, SC, (WIS) – A local musician and anti-smoking activist died Wednesday evening after a long battle with lung cancer according to his family.
Chris Conner was a member of the Midlands band Sourwood Honey, and was diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year.
“He was never afraid and he was completely at peace with God,” said Chris’s family on their website.
“From the beginning of this battle to the very end Chris has been strong, cracking jokes, laughing, concerned for his family and friends before himself and his faith was steadfast.”
Chris was a smoker for 16 years and quit two years before becoming ill.
We are sorry for the family’s loss and extend our heart felt wishes for comfort to his family.
