William “Bill” Joseph Connery, aged 78, peacefully passed away following a prolonged illness.
He was born in Philadelphia, PA, but later his family relocated to Texas. In 1963, he proudly graduated from Midland High School.

After an honorable discharge, he ventured into the world of finance, becoming a successful stockbroker and pursuing various entrepreneurial endeavors.

Beyond his professional achievements, William was a devoted and affectionate grandfather, uncle, and brother. His caring nature and unwavering commitment to family endeared him to all who knew him.
Preceding Bill in death are his parents, Dr. David Bradford Connery and Mother Marion Tweed, as well as his two brothers, David Connery and Robert Tweed.
Mr. Connery is survived by his two daughters, Stacy Connery and Kim Connery, both residing in Midland, TX, along with his brothers Brad Connery of Midland, TX, and Bruce Connery of Houston, TX., two grandchildren Alexis Merrick of Midland, TX, and Hayden Carroll of Dallas, TX.

    Of the several characteristics of Bill Connery, I credit a fierce scar on his face as augmenting his prowess as a boxer. Likely aided by that scar, he played a mean defense in junior high football and a kick ass on the street. His short stature proved useful to fool competitors. But he displayed his finest performance in an English class at MHS. Miss Whitten, if memory and spelling serves me, had the class reading Gulliver’s Travels. Most all of us rubes in the class considered the tale just a make-believe story. However, Mr. Connery correctly informed us that the tale is profound satire, especially harsh on the British and imperialism, and Mr. Bill provided perfect examples of the sharp sarcasm in the story. The class Brains, most of you readers will recall that erudite clique, quickly exposed their astonishment with exclamations of “I didn’t get that!” I recall the Brains
    surrounding Mr. Connery and Miss Whitten after class was dismissed. To my regret, I did not eavesdrop on that little chat. Mr. Bill, I can’t forget that killer right cross you decked me with in Joe Waller’s backyard, or my fond
    memories of our pugilistic competitions.
