Yesterday, Conley was honored at a visitation, also in the SCHS gymnasium. An American flag hung over the entrance of the gym, a symbol of the sacrifice Conley gave while on duty.

Hundreds of people came to pay their respects to the fallen officer during a visitation, including first responders from across the state.

“He was a good husband, a good father and he cared about his community,” said Donovan Riggins, a family member of Conley’s by marriage.

Riggins says the support they’ve been shown since Conley’s death has meant so much to the family.

Conley was with the SCSO for four years. He was also an Army veteran and served as a combat engineer. During his eight years with the Army, Conley deployed to Iraq where he helped execute more than 1,800 combat missions and was recognized for finding 164 improvised explosive devices.

He was an active member of the Clayton Arnold Foundation, a volunteer at Licking River Outfitters, a member of the Elks Lodge #438 and a mason.

Conley loved to hunt and fish, volunteer time to his kids’ sporting teams and volunteer in the community.

His wife even nicknamed him “Mr. Mayor” for being so well-known and friendly with everyone he encountered, his obituary noted.

A fundraiser to support his family has raised over $92,000 of its $100,000 goal as of publishing time.
