Betty, Al Jr.,Dennis and family.
I am sorry for your loss. Working with Al for 17 years was not always easy, but I learned quite a bit. Remember: What we keep in memories is ours unchanged forever.

My condolences to the Conrad family. Al, Rest In Peace. The pain is gone. We had a lot of fun riding our Harleys together. We did the Skyline Drive Run in Virginia and had great time. God bless you for your kindness to me.

Uncle Al, you endured so much, especially these last several months, fighting the best fight of your life. I am certain you now rest in heavenly peace where there is no suffering and pain. You touched so many lives and will be terribly missed. Until we meet again, we keep you and your family close in prayer and forged in our hearts forever. Aunt Betty, although the circumstances were trying, I feel honored and blessed to have been able to sit by your side, pray with you and your family this past month. God Bless Us, - Audrey

Our prayers and love and thoughts to Aunt Betty, Al, Denny and their families on the passing of Uncle Al - he was certainly one of a kind, from RC airplanes to boats to motorcycles, from sweating the plumbing at Atwood Lake to sitting behind the controls of the boat on the river for a cruise. We'll remember him fondly for those who will miss him the most, and there's sure to be a place in the next world for Uncle Al and a heaven-bound Harley Davidson, with a few stops along the way. Chris and Kay Esker, Emily, Maddy, and Christopher

On Sunday April 30th, my beloved dad, Albert J. Conrad Sr, passed away peacefully... surrounded by his family.

When I was a little boy of four, we lost our Nanna. Mom told me I asked her where she was. Mom told me she responded "The happy part of her was now with God in Heaven, and the sleepy part was here to rest". Solace to a four year old, an integral stepping stone to a life lesson in the future.

You never think it will happen, a parent lost. And, a seemingly impenetrable iron one at that. Not iron, harder. Forged from a metal rare in nature within an illusive hidden foundry... Always steadfast and sure, resilient against obstacles. Even after being buried alive when I was a teen, he recovered... bounced back... fought back. From this son's perspective, even as the years advanced, no barrier could withstand him. I was sure he'd always be here... sitting at our kitchen table drinking tea and eating all my cookies... talking about silly nonsense, the past, things serious, about mistakes, forgiveness, the future...

And now, gone. I'm no longer able to ask even the most mundane triviality... Only flooded with images of the past... helping put my kitchen floor back together again at the age of 78, with bad knees, without one complaint... cobbling together a motorcycle from a pile of junk parts... pounding kingpins into my first car, an old Postal Jeep, complete with colorful language... building a car together and winning the Soap Box Derby in Boy Scouts... being on the sidelines as my brother and I marched in band competitions... sitting on his lap and not liking his smoking... setting up the trains for Christmas... finding out by sneaking down the steps he and Mom were Santa Claus...

Thanks Dad, for the memories... for all the moments you gave me I can't again experience. For making me the person I am, the Dad I am. I would give all of them up for one more chance to tell you I love you, and to thank you for all you did, all you sacrificed, the long hours you worked so we could have, so I could inevitably become the person I am today...

I miss you terribly...

So, after a valiant struggle against incredible odds, Dad now rests. I try to take comfort in knowing you no longer has to do battle with the odds you were fighting against, and fiercely I might add. You now can rest, so that the happy part can be in the comfort of the Lord.

And thus, mounted on Heavenly Harley Davidson he sets off on a wild ride to the next step... the ultimate road trip... from from this world into the next.

You will not be forgotten.
