The family will receive friends beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 11, and a Celebration of Life Service will follow at 3 p.m., all at Collierville Funeral Home, 534 West Poplar. Conner was born December 18, 1992 in San Diego, CA, and he moved with his family to Collierville in July 1998. He attended Crosswind Elementary, Schilling Farms Middle, and Collierville High School, graduating in December 2010. Conner was an artist and poet, enjoying long walks and nature. He loved music, especially playing his guitar, and he really enjoyed playing basketball with his friends. Conner had a special place in his heart for animals, especially his dogs, Caleb and Lucky; he also volunteered at the Fayette County Animal Rescue and the Collierville Animal Shelter. Conner was unique; an intelligent and unusually kind-hearted man, who was always willing to help others and never held a grudge. He is survived by his parents, David and Nyla Alderton; his brother, Austin Alderton; his grandparents, David Alderton, Sr., Marilyn Ringheim, and Henry Allen Baggott; and several aunts, uncles, cousins, and special friends, including his girlfriend, Jamie Donaldson. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Loren Ringheim and Joyce Baggott.
