Notes for Wendell Brown Conner
Graduated from Northeastern University with a degree in engineering.

According to Pauline...
Parents always thought he underachieved, took job below his degree. Dated a girl parents really liked, everyone thought they'd marry - but who he stopped seeing around the time he met grandma. At the time, everyone thought grandma was too aloof.

Had heart disease, died after severe stroke.

I remember not being allowed to go to his funeral. My only memory of him was when he installed a handle bar device on my bike. You twisted it and it would make a reving sound, like a motorcycle. I think it was called "Raw Power."
