Conner Mitchell Lund, age 24, passed away on June 15, 2022 in Price, UT.
Conner was born September 12, 1997 in Salt Lake City, UT to Mitchell Newell & Sherri Anastasia Zissi Lund. He was a huge Minnesota Vikings, San Jose Sharks, Philadelphia Phillies, and University of Utah Utes fan. He absolutely loved stupid shows, classic movies and old Western movies. Everything he ate had to be spicy, he loved his spicy food and hot sauces to say the least. He was a sarcastic, funny, very nice and loving person. He loved to take pictures and draw, he was very good photographer and artist. He loved animals so much, especially his pets. He never could have enough pets, and always wanted more. He loved to be in the mountains at our property. He was always truly happy there, whether it was fishing, riding the 4-wheeler, sitting out late at the campfire staring up at the stars followed by falling asleep to some of our favorite camping movies, in our little Samak Hideaway.
Conner is survived by the love of his life, fiancé Taska Collins, father Mitchell Lund, mother Sherri Lund, brother Aaron Lund, brother Carson Lund and Carson's girlfriend Ashley Clarke, grandmother Connie Zissi, many uncles, aunts, and cousins, and Little Bears. He was preceded in death by Newell and Blanche Lund, Ron Zissi, Sadie Lund and Storm Lund.
A viewing will be held at Larkin Mortuary on 260 East South Temple from 11 am to 12 pm on Wednesday June 22nd, 2022. Graveside services will follow at 12:30 pm at the Salt Lake City Cemetery on 200 N St E, Salt Lake City, UT.
Conner was an amazing mentor and great peer to work with. Although I did not get to work with him too much, I know how much of an impact he made on our new hires and his peers around him. He will truly be missed by his Discover team mates.
Words can not describe how sorry we are for your loss. Conner was a awesome person to be around and we are so lucky to have known him and hung out with him. I will always remember him as the EAGLET when he would come hang out with the group at partys followinghis big brother. This world is lesser of a place without someone like Conner in it. He will always be remembered. We love you Conner, and the Lund family.
Rest easy Conor. We haven't spoken since high school but you were always a good friend. Watch over your fiancé
I had the pleasure of working with Conner at Discover. We joined our team in 2021. For a year Conner and I worked on a team. Then we both became mentors. Through out Tbay I got to work with him. Our job in Tbay is very special, we help develop others everyday to be better. Conner was a light to everyone he met. He was so sweet and kind. His positive energy and willingness to help others. I got to work with Conner recently, I told him how happy I was to see him and work with him. I'm so sorry for you loss, he taught me a lot in the time we had together and as I develop he has set life long examples with me. His impacts will forever touch the lives of many at Discover. Conner was an amazing mentor and friend. I'm so blessed to get to be a part of his life and I pray for you and your family in this time. _Megan Jolley

Dear Aaron, Papa, and family.
Our deepest condolences go to you and your family.
Aaron my friend we love you.
It’s difficult to connect with others when they are states a part. However, the connection I had with Conner was the outlier with me being in Phoenix. He was my friend at Discover. When I first met him, he was a new mentor in training. He was a little shy at first but he broke out of his shell and we connected on so many levels; from food to video games to movies and so much more. It’s hard to fathom what has transpired. I wanted to take a moment to say how much of a positive impact he had on me and so many others. I will miss him dearly.
As I travel to Price today, I am thinking of my dear friend Conner. Conner was one of my employees when he first joined Discover Bank and sadly, I was unable to attend his funeral, but have always wanted to send my condolences to his girlfriend and family but was not sure how until I found this online obituary. When I first heard of Conner’s passing I was in disbelief. A few weeks prior to Conner’s passing, he reached out to me to share that he was now a new hire mentor and was so excited for the opportunity. I remember feeling so proud of him and touched, that he reached out to share this news with me. I truly enjoyed working with Conner, he was honestly one of the sweetest and most caring young men I have ever met, hands down! Reflecting back on our one on ones, Conner was just always so excited for his future, always had a smile, kind words, and truly loved his girlfriend. My condolences to Conner’s girlfriend and family. I have been thinking about Conner often and will never forget him. 💐
