115 BOURBON STREET – 3359 W 115th ST MERRIONETTE PARK, IL 60803
On Nov. 24th 2019, Brian Conry was tragically taken by a sudden heart attack at the age of 39. He is survived by his wife, Deb, his son, Logan, his step-daughter, Heather, his granddaughter, Charlie, his brother, Kevin, his sister, Heather, and his mother, Marjorie. The loss of Brian is profoundly felt by his family, friends, bandmates, co-workers, and students.
Brian was a member of the Stock Yard Kilty Band as a member of the drum corps and achieved the rank of Drum Sergeant, as well as the admiration of his bandmates, drum students, and the entirety of the Midwest Pipe Band Association. He also displayed his drum talent by playing the set for Electricon, Chapter Zero, and Hi-Fi Society.
He was a native of Evergreen Park IL, graduating from Northwest Elementary, Central Jr. High, and Evergreen Park High School. Professionally, he served as a C-card electrician with Blitz Communications and an IT professional for PLA and Briar Hall.
Brian was also a lifelong community member who volunteered as a coach for Crestwood Youth Soccer club alongside his brother, Kevin, with his son and nephews as players. In this way, we wish to continue in Brian’s spirit to be there as family to those he held most dear. As we all know, college costs can rise substantially and can be extremely difficult with the loss of a provider, which is the reason for this fund-raising campaign. With your help we can help ease the financial burden on Deb and the rest of the Conry family.
All money raised will go directly to Logan Conry’s college fund. Please join us for a day of music, family, and friendship – featuring:
The Chicago Stock Yard Kilty Band
Dancers from The Mayer School of Irish Dance
Big Richard & The Energy
St. James Gate
