Behind a baseball-shaped flower arrangement adorned with the numeral 4, Grand County High School baseball players wait for the start of their teammate Connor Denney’s memorial service on Tuesday, March 14 at the GCHS baseball field. Denney, a 16-year-old sophomore who wore uniform No. 4 for the Red Devils, was killed in a single vehicle rollover accident south of Moab on Sunday morning, March 5. Hundreds of mourners filled the stands and sidelines as several speakers paid tribute to Denney, praising his upbeat attitude, kindness, and work ethic. The preceding afternoon, Monday, March 13, a large crowd also attended the funeral of Taylor Bryant, who also died in the March 5 accident. Bryant, a 14-year-old freshman, played on the Lady Devils’ volleyball and basketball teams. She was fondly remembered by family members, coaches, teammates and other friends at her memorial service, which was held at the Moab LDS Stake Center. Three other local teenagers who were also involved in last week’s accident are still recovering from their injuries, and at least one of them was able to be in attendance at Denney’s memorial. Hundreds of community members also gathered for a candlelight vigil held at the school’s football field last Wednesday evening, March 8. This week, counselors at both GCHS and Grand County Middle School are continuing to provide support and assistance to students as they work through the grieving process.
