Tony Roland Conner, age 79, of Bessemer City passed away on Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at CaroMont Regional Medical Center. He was born on July 16, 1944, to the late Roland and Amanda Bryte Conner. He was a graduate of Bessemer City High School and owned Tony’s Exxon in Bessemer City during the 70’s and 80’s.
