He worked in the early space program, laser and computer technologies and was recognized with numerous awards for his achievements and discoveries. Conrad was a loving and attentive father, grandfather and spouse, a man of great knowledge and
integrity who loved learning and discovery on a wide range of topics. He enjoyed traveling with his second wife as they
