He was a lifelong member of the Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus Albanel Assembly 859. For as long as he was able, he was actively involved in St. Anne Parish where he volunteered as a collector and funeral server.
Conrad will be remembered as a loving husband and kind and gentle person, who was a wonderful influence and example, not only to his family but to all who knew him.
During this unprecedented situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with very heavy hearts that the family has made the difficult decision to hold a private funeral. Conrad will be buried in the family plot at St. Anne Cemetery.
