"Not sure why I didn't see this earlier, but I stumbled across this last night. I wasn't aware that Conn had passed. Conn and I were barracks roommates and friends at NAS Barbers Point in Hawaii. We played music together all the time, went to concerts, hung out on the beach.. He was one of my best friends back then. We went to see one of the most amazing Rush shows I can recall together. We pitched in together to buy the red '68 Dodge Dart in my pictures, and put the engine from the pictured green '71 Valiant in it. We lost touch for a while when he left Hawaii, but reconnected over Facebook many years ago. Even though I haven't seen him in over 35 years, I still feel a lot of sadness over his passing. Godspeed my brother. RIP"
TCVA extends its sympathy and prayer for peace to Conn Berkshire's family and friends during this time of the passing.
