The broadcast engineer died at home suddenly on Nov. 1 in Millsboro, Del.; he was 46.

He began his career at family-owned Connor Broadcasting on the Delmarva Peninsula. From the mid-1980s through the 1990s Connor worked at stations in Washington, New York and Los Angeles as chief engineer. He held the title of DOE at one time or another for FM stations WKYS, WASH, WJFK and WBIG in Washington; WNEW and WYNY in New York; and KCAL(TV), Los Angeles, as well as other stations.

More recently he was a consultant.

“Although skilled in all areas of his field, he was particularly known for his achievements in broadcast audio quality and in antenna design,” according to a bio from his family. Connor also was involved in the early manufacture of the Ariane Audio Processor.
