Connor J. Puhlman Memorial Fund for Youth

Lee Ann and David Puhlman established the Connor J. Puhlman Memorial Fund for Youth in 2017 to honor the memory of their son, who passed away at just 16 as the result of a car accident. Connor was born on November 13, 1998 and died on August 20, 2015. He was a junior at Sacred Heart Academy and a member of Sacred Heart Parish. Connor was a mini entrepreneur, starting Connor’s Creations, and enjoyed making deals. He liked hunting and fishing and was a member of White Tails Unlimited. He enjoyed basketball and baseball and working on trucks. Connor loved hanging out with his friends. This field of interest fund named for Connor will make grants to charitable organizations for projects or programs that benefit the youth of Isabella County--now and forever.
