Konner Michael Thrower

Konner Michael Thrower, age 18, passed away Tuesday, June 15, 2021. He was born in Victoria, TX, January 21, 2003 to Martha Diane and Don Mitchell Thrower, Jr. Konner lived and loved without abandon.  He was tenderhearted to those who struggled, and worked tirelessly to make sure everyone felt included. He made sure our home was always filled with laughter, music, and silly dance moves.  He was a gifted musician, athlete, and artist – he was truly humble about the abilities the Lord blessed him with.  Konner was a special young man who made fast friends everywhere he went, but his closest and truest friends were his siblings.  #BigPoppaK Psalm 30: 11-12

    This is such a brilliant description of Konner’s life, a real testament to the ball of untempered energy and creativity he was.What a wild, fearless kid —he changed his hair ? What, weekly?I’ll probably remember him best at about 7 years— just comically lean from never resting and playing, moving, singing— everything FERVENTLY. We sure love all the Throwers, and Konner will be sorely missed.

    Konner’s spirit was contagious! As a little tike he was full of life and energy. He loved his momma! I remember the day his dad baptized him, I think at the tender age of 5. He was so excited and just couldn’t wait! It was a precious moment to witness. He loved the mission trips, he loved to serve! From back yard Bible clubs to playing sports with the kids in attendance. He was all in! I am honored to have taught him in Awana, although I always wondered if he was listening… he and Karmen were too busy giggling. Konner, God fulfilled his plan in your life. You have made it home! We shall meet you by the river, on that beautiful shore. We love you all, Bro. Mitch, Sis. Diane, Kyle, Kennedy, Kate and Karsyn.

    Mitch, Diane & family,
    What a thoughtful, kind & compassionate young man. I always appreciated Konners helpfulness with the preschool kids. They all adored him. Praying for all of y’all. ??????
