Charles Roger Conrad

March 19, 1944 — April 2, 2019

Charles R. Conrad, lovingly known as Roger while growing up and as Chuck since he entered college in 1962, entered into the presence of his Savior on April 2, 2019. He was born on March 19, 1944, in Johnson City, New York, to George E. & Cora B. (Barnes) Conrad. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Andrew W. Conrad.
He is survived by his adored wife of 53 years, Ethel (Winsor) Conrad, sister Elizabeth (Raymond) Prebish, brother George E. Conrad, brother-in-heart Garth (Marge) Winsor, & sister-in-heart Garnita (Rex) Cole.
He was blessed with 3 beautiful daughters, Pamela (David) Gould of Pickerington, OH; Kate (Pat) Wolfe and Marcie (Jeremy) Tennant of Cleveland, TN.
He treasured his 11 grandchildren, Caribeth (Scott) Galarneau, Kristen (Zeb) Martin, Katie (Tommy) Chambers, Kyle (Megan) Gould, Tim Wolfe, Jennae (Andrew) Lawson, Jared (Ashley) Tennant, Kurtis Gould, Makenzie Tennant, Madison Tennant, and Kenton Gould.
His 4 great-grandchildren, Isaac Jon Martin, Cora Grace Gould, Jordyn Rose Chambers, and Anna Kate Martin were his joy and delight.
Several nieces, nephews, and cousins also survive.
Chuck graduated from Johnson City (NY) High School in 1961 and received his Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree from Cornell University in 1968. He furthered his education at Cornell with a Master of Science degree in 1972 and taught veterinary radiology at Purdue University from 1972 to 1974. Chuck loved his life as a veterinarian and bought his own practice in Fort Plain, NY, in 1974. After selling the practice in 1998, he concentrated on veterinary radiology & consultation and orthopedic surgery in the Albany, NY, area for another 20 years.
Chuck’s life passions were first, his love for God, then, his love for family, and finally, his love of the career he had chosen. He was very active at Cornerstone Baptist Church in Ames, NY, where he was a member from 1974 to 2018. He was beloved in the community and passionately cherished by his family.
Chuck and Ethel moved to Cleveland, TN, late in 2016. In his retirement, Chuck’s passions remained his God and his family. He was a member of Waterville Baptist Church and enjoyed the closeness of so many family members.
A celebration of Chuck’s life will be held at Waterville Baptist Church on April 6, 2019, at 4pm. The family will have a private burial at Lee Cemetery. A celebration of his life will also be held in upstate New York at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a memorial gift may be given to Cornerstone Baptist Church in Ames, NY, or Waterville Baptist Church in Cleveland, TN.
