Connor James Sturgeon, age 25, of Louisville, Kentucky passed away on Monday, April 10, 2023. He was born on February 11, 1998, in Indianapolis, Indiana, and lived much of his life in southern Indiana. Connor was a proud graduate of the University of Alabama (2020), having received the prestigious Presidential Scholarship, graduating with a double major in finance and economics, along with receiving a Master’s of Science Degree. Prior to attending college, Connor was a 2016 graduate of Floyd Central High School, where he was a National Merit Scholar, a varsity basketball and track athlete (Regional Champion, 400 meter dash – 2016), along with having been selected as “Mr. Floyd Central” his senior year.
Connor is survived by his loving parents, Todd and Lisa (Taylor) Sturgeon, his brother and best friend, Cameron Sturgeon (also selected as “Mr. Floyd Central” in 2019), his paternal grandmother, Anita Sturgeon, his maternal grandparents (Harold and Phyllis Taylor) his aunts and uncles Terri Agan (Bob), Michael Taylor (Becky), Stev Taylor (Ken), Lori Adams (Seth), and cousins Colin Agan, Caitlin Ellis (Garrett, and daughter Ansley). Connor was fortunate to have been much loved by his girlfriend, Kelsey Striegel, as well as many friends located all over the country, including college friend (and roommate) Dallas Whelan, and longtime friend Jack Parker. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Roland Sturgeon.
All who knew Connor knew he loved (and followed) nearly every sport, being a walking database of NBA knowledge, trivia, and statistics. More than anything else, Connor loved Alabama Football and the Dallas Mavericks. Connor’s other passion involved his volunteer work with Junior Achievement of Kentuckiana.
A private service is being held for family and friends. The Sturgeon family asks that any donations or expressions of sympathy be made to the fundraiser for Louisville Metro Police Officer Nick Wilt.
Roll Tide, Connor.
