Conrad passed away at St. Francis Hospital in Tulsa on Saturday, June 1, 2019. He was 66 years old.
He was born in Claremore on March 19, 1953, the son of Leroy Conrad Dunaway and Francis Marie (Luke) Dunaway. As a child, he attended Justus School, later transferring to Claremore High School, where he graduated in 1971.
On October 11, 1975, Conrad married Leta Weaver in Claremore. They made their home in Claremore, where they raised their two children. Conrad worked for UBA Heat, then Worthington, until the company closed. He then worked at Nupar Manufacturing until his retirement in 2015.
In his spare time, Conrad enjoyed old cars, working on the farm, and watching drag racing on television. He also enjoyed a few trips to Tunica, Mississippi. But most of all, he cherished time spent with his grandchildren.
Conrad was preceded in death by his parents and his wife Leta.
