Conrad was born August 30, 1961 in Roundup, Montana where he resided until he moved away to go to college at Montana State University where he earned his BA degree in accounting.

K- Mart had him moving all over the United States from Montana, Washington, Oregon, and finally California where he spent his last 30 years managing K-Marts in different locations throughout California including Hollister where he lived with his family for 26 years.
Conrad was the best father, husband, person anyone could ask for. He was a shining example of chivalry, honor, and kindness. He had a strong sense of justice and an outstanding moral compass. He always made dad jokes and puns and was very devoted to his family.
His hobbies included fishing, studying history, cooking, working on cars, and watching westerns or comedies. He was a very handy man and made several stunning pieces of furniture throughout his life. Conrad cooked many memorable meals for his family that will be sorely missed and a few odd creations that won’t. Anyone who has ever gotten the opportunity to know him with surely feel his absence.
