The most accomplished, yet humble man that I have ever known. His students at W&M simply adored him.

I worked with Dr. Connell for a number of years at Williamsburg Landing. He was a great and kindly gentleman, the like of whom we nowadays see little. His erudition was matched - no, superceded - by his humanity. It was an honor and a blessing to know him.

Alastair was a terrific human being and will be missed by everyone who knew him. I was one of the Fellowship Sunday School Class teachers with him at Williamsburg Presbyterian Church. There I became immensely fond of him and a deep admirer of his character, faith, wisdom, and sense of humor.
