Condolence: Shortly after I arrived at the University of Tennessee at Martin in fall 1968, I had the distinct privilege of meeting Dean Harold Conner. And when I did, I felt I was home! He had such a calming effect on me; he commanded respect, not by asking or demanding it, but simply because in his presence, respect exuded. His soft voice brought calm, and perhaps it was because he was also a minister of the gospel that I always felt humbled in his presence. He would speak barely above a whisper in a room filled with students, and yet we could all hear him. When he spoke, we listened.

Mr. Conner was always welcoming, kind, and supportive. When we, as UTM students, faced challenging situations, he always admonished us to look introspectively, to weigh our options, to count the cost, and to consider the impact of our present actions on our future. With his guidance, we were able to determine the best course for achieving our goals. It was a time of change at UTM, and Dean Conner helped us understand the environment and navigate the avenues that would ultimately lead to the establishment of various organizations, greater engagement of black students in leadership, heightened sensitivity to the needs of a diverse student population, and an environment of cooperation and collaboration. It was not perfect, and it was not always easy, but Mr. Conner helped make it possible. Thankfully, he had the benefit of experience, and, as such, he was a man of great reason and wisdom. He was a constant advocate and in his own calm but straightforward way always offered godly counsel.

I am deeply saddened by the passing of this great man, with whom I enjoyed a wonderful relationship during my time at UTM and subsequently. As a consummate mentor, he was my confidante and friend. My career in higher education was, no doubt, influenced greatly by Mr. Conner, and much of who and what I am today bears the imprimatur of Dean Harold T. Conner. One of the great honors of my career was the opportunity to return to my alma mater in 1982 and serve for two years in the position he had held at UTM. It goes without saying that no one could "fill his shoes."

For the Reverend Harold T. Conner, who now stands in the presence of God to receive his great reward for a life so well lived, we honor his rich legacy. He touched many lives during his walk here and demonstrated the love that we are all called to show toward others. Truly, the world is a far better place because he lived. His voice resonates within our spirits and still speaks to us, and for so many of us, Harold Conner yet lives!

Condolence From: Dennis Mathewson
Condolence: I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother,
and found great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 -
"The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away
the tears from all faces." Also at Revelation 21 verse 4, we find
God's promise to remove both pain and death. I hope these verses
will give you a measure of comfort during your time of grief.
