Finley Boettcher Conlon

Finley Boettcher Conlon, age 7, passed away unexpectedly on July 1, 2023. Finley is the son of Matthew Conlon and Katie Boettcher, born on April 24, 2016 in Concord, MA.

Fin was a loving and adventurous child, always seeking new experiences and embracing life to the fullest. He is the beloved brother to Ellwood and Harrison, and their bond was unbreakable.

Finley found joy in helping, whether it was at home, on the farm, at Sunset Lake, or at his school, Varnum Brook. Finley loved feeding the chickens, mowing the lawn, and fishing with family. Finley's adventurous spirit shone brightest when he was surrounded by the beauty of nature.

Finley will be remembered for his kind heart, his curiosity, and his unwavering love for his family and traditions. His absence will be deeply felt by all who had the privilege of knowing him. May his spirit continue to guide and inspire us as we navigate life's journey without him.

Finley is survived by his parents, his sister, Ellwood, and brother, Harrison, in addition to Grammy Robin Boettcher, and Nana Nancy Conlon, his “Uncle” Karley Boettcher and Uncle Josh Conlon, as well as great aunts and uncles and so many, many close cousins.

Visiting hours will be held at McGaffigan Family Funeral Home, 37 Main St., (Rte. 113) Pepperell, MA on Friday, July 14th from 4 - 8 pm. Funeral services will be held at Grace Baptist Church, 42 River Rd., Pepperell, MA on Saturday, July 15th at 10 am followed by a reception. Burial will be private.

In lieu of flowers, we ask for New England hearty and native perennial plants to be given to Katie, Matt, Ellwood, and Harrison to plant in memory of Finley.
