Conrad enjoyed working with his father and brothers, Bobby and Larry, in their family painting business for most of his life. When they were together there was always wit and humor. Conrad had a boisterous laugh that matched his off collar humor. Fitting his Norwegian heritage, Conrad was set in his ways, determined, and a hard worker. His pride and greatest joy was his grandchildren.
