MYSTIC - Liam McDonnell, 26, departed this life on February 27, 2023. He was the beloved son of Maggie (Ryan) and Daniel O. McDonnell, and brother to Owen and the late Seamus McDonnell.
Born under a blue moon on June 29, 1996 in New Haven, CT, Liam was known to have a sparkling personality and enjoyed sharing his selfless charm and charisma with his many friends and colleagues. He attended Lyman Hall High School in Wallingford, graduating with the Class of 2014. He then continued his studies at the University of South Carolina, where he was awarded a Bachelor of Science in Tourism Business Management in 2020. Currently, Liam was the Events Supervisor at the Mashantucket Pequot Museum and Research Center.
Liam’s sense of humor was boundless, and he enjoyed life to the fullest extent. He loved hitting the slopes to snowboard as much as he loved hitting the dance floor. And no matter what he was doing, he was surrounded by a crowd living in the moment in full bliss. Recently, he also started to become an international traveler visiting Germany and his brother Owen studying abroad in Scotland.
Above all, Liam was exceptionally sweet and sensitive, with a keen perception of others that allowed him to share his generous, loving heart with everyone around him. He will be dearly missed and cherished forever.
Liam was preceded in death by his older brother, Seamus D. McDonnell, who passed away on October 30, 2006. He is survived by his loving parents, Maggie and Daniel McDonnell; brother, Owen G McDonnell; a very large number of loving Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins; and many, many friends.
The family is still deciding upon services, which will be announced here. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Heifer International (www.heifer.org) or you can do a small act of kindness to put a smile on someone’s face in Liam’s honor. B.C. Bailey Funeral Home is honored to have been entrusted with Liam’s final care and arrangements.
