Robert Gordon Conrad

1945 ~ 2020 (age 75)


ROBERT GORDON CONRAD, beloved husband of Eleanor of Fort Macleod, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by family, on Thursday, August 6 at the age of 75 years.

He is survived by his children:  Vicky (Thomas) McCormack of Simi Valley, California, Gordy (Leslie) Conrad of Victoria, British Columbia, Marty (Darice) Conrad of Lethbridge, AB, Jerry (Michelle) Conrad of Lethbridge, AB, Brookee (Matthew) Bullock of Lethbridge, AB, Becky (Jason) Gouchie of Fort Macleod, AB, and A.J. Conrad (Katie Corle) of Stanford, Connecticut.  He is also survived by 23 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren, and countless nieces and nephews.

Robert is also survived by his brother: Blair (Gail) Conrad, sister: Cheryl (Gordon) MacKay, sister: Laurie (Bob) Muir, brother-in-law: Norman (Karen) Kesler, brother-in-law: Gordon (Joyce) Kesler, and sister-in-law: Trudie (Bill) Fyfe.

He is predeceased by his mother and father, and his brothers: Ricky Conrad, and Gary Conrad.

Bob was raised on a ranch east of Warner.  He moved to the farm in Fort Macleod with his sweetheart Eleanor in 1966 where they raised their 7 children and have remained since for a total of 54 years.  Bob was known for his mechanical skills, inventiveness, sense of adventure, camping, driving school bus, scouting and many more pursuits.  Bob was always quick to help and lend a hand.  He had a contagious smile and twinkle in his eye.  He loved serving in the temple and was anxious to get back to work as soon as he could.  He worked hard, played harder, and always made sure that there were good times to be had when he was around.  Of all his accomplishments, he was proudest of his children, and never missed an opportunity to brag about his posterity.  He is beloved by family and friends and touched the lives of all he encountered.

A Private Family Service will be held on Tuesday, August 11 at 11:00 a.m. at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Fort Macleod, Alberta.
