Bryan Edward Connaughton, 38, of Wilmington, NC passed away unexpectedly in an automobile accident on the evening of June 11, 2016.  
Originally from Setauket, Long Island, New York, he was born on July 4, 1977 to Michael and Valerie Connaughton. After attending Sienna College, Bryan worked as a tree climber in NY, maintaining and cutting trees. Hired by Fitness Tree Service in 2004, he moved to Wilmington where he continued his line of work, having a special place in his heart for nature and the great outdoors. Bryan was an avid reader, providing him with a wealth of knowledge.  Each fall, he enthusiastically pulled for his cherished Chicago Bears.
Bryan was preceded in death by a brother, Aaron Civiok, his maternal uncle, Peter Civiok, his maternal grandparents, Ed and Alice Civiok, and his paternal grandparents, Eugene and Patricia Connaughton.
Surviving is the love of his life Marian Canady and her daughter, Jessica, who he treasured as his own. Also surviving are his father, Michael (Beth) Connaughton, of Wilmington, his mother, Valerie (Richard) Barnes of Setauket, New York, a brother Mike (Lisa) Connaughton of Wilmington and brother Kevin Civiok of Rocky Point, NY.  Bryan leaves behind two nieces both of whom he adored, Megan Marie Connaughton and Kelsie Ann Connaughton of Wilmington and his beloved nephew, Matthew Civiok, of Rocky Point, NY.  Many wonderful and loyal friends remain to keep his memory and spirit alive.
Visitation is planned between 6 and 9 p.m. Wednesday, June 15, 2016, at Andrews Valley Chapel. A funeral mass will be held at 9 a.m. Thursday, June 16, at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.  
In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be sent to the Cape Fear Literacy Council, 1012 S. 17th Street, Wilmington, NC  28401.
