Obituary of Conor M. O'Shea

Please share a memory of Conor to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Albany - Conor O’Shea, 37, passed away on Wednesday, December 6, 2023. Conor was

born on December 3, 1986, in Albany, the son of Bonnie (Morrison) O’Shea and

Brendan O’Shea. He grew up in Slingerlands and attended Bethlehem Central

schools. He was drawn to athletics, and especially loved ice hockey. He forged

many lasting relationships with teammates and coaches in local youth hockey

organizations. As a goalie, Con stopped many a puck (and alas, saw a few get by

him). He continued to play the game he loved until a series of injuries compelled

him to hang up his skates and enjoy the sport on the big screens only.

     Con attended Potsdam State University, and found employment in the field of law

enforcement. He served as a Corrections Officer with the New York State

Department of Corrections and Community Supervision until he was fortunate

enough to be accepted into the Albany Police Department, where he began his

career in 2017, and was appointed Detective in 2020. Con poured a great deal of

time and energy into his job and into the support of his colleagues on the force, to

whom he was devoted, and who in turn, returned that devotion.

     Besides his loving parents, Con is survived by his older brother, Patrick (Jolene), of

Ballston Spa, and by many cherished aunts, uncles and cousins. He also leaves

behind his two furry friends, Molson and Finn, who will now spend quality time at

the family home.

     Bonnie and Brendan wish to acknowledge the kindness, professionalism and love

shown by Con’s APD family, Chief Hawkins, and Mayor Sheehan. The residents of

Albany are fortunate indeed to be protected by such considerate public servants.

     A memorial service will be held at 10:30 am Monday, December 11, 2023 at the Church

of St. Vincent de Paul, 900 Madison Ave., Albany, NY. The family invites all to a

reception in the church hall immediately following the service.

Donations may be made to the Mohawk Hudson Humane Society, 3 Oakland Ave., Menands, NY 12204. (
