“He endured more lockdown than anyone we have even known – 16 weeks harsh lockdown in Wuhan, two weeks in Australia, and a further three weeks in the UK.
“We are both broken-hearted that his adventures came to an end at Bangor University where he was studying for a degree in the Chinese language with what looks like a tragic accident.
She said “we will never know where his ambition and drive would have taken him.
“We would like to give Connor the funeral he deserves in the UK and also Australia.
