In his younger days, Connie delivered papers for the Neodesha Daily Sun and played saxophone in a local band. According to his mother Anna Wolfe, at around three years old, Conrad once walked to town in his birthday suit.
Conrad's passions included Quarter Horses, Limousine and Black Angus Cattle, dabbling in crop production, stamp and coin collecting, and gardening. One prized possession was his Jackass Firecracker who loved Conrad and loathed every one else. You might know Conrad from years with the Wilson County 4-H Club, as a regular for morning coffee at Jiffy Mart, for his service as a Neodesha School Board member, or maybe he delivered propane to your family.
Conrad was a veteran serving in the Army National Guard. Early in his career, he worked as a foreman with M.E.C.in Neodesha. Later, he helped startup Guaranty Performance in Independence, KS. His career culminated with around twenty years delivering fuel to customers around Neodesha and neighboring communities. He retired on his farm spending his later years for his wife Joyce, traveling, gardening, entertaining grandchildren, raising hens, retelling old stories, and sitting around with the dogs.
Conrad is preceded in death by his parents Clarence R and Anna C and sister Dorothy Conklin.
