At their home, Conrad and Mae enjoyed bird watching, and feeding many feathered friends as well as any other strays that entered their yard, including rabbits and deer.

Conrad had innumerable skills and worked as a welder, miner, truck driver until he began working as a Corrections Officer for Prince Albert Correctional Center until his retirement in 2007 where he made many friends from co-workers.

My sincere sympathy to Mae and all families. Conrad was a true gentleman. He was very talented . He enjoyed life. I will always remember him well for building their beautiful home in Melfort. The deck was so admirable, just as the yard was also. I’m so glad you both got to enjoy that beautiful spot together. May Conrad rest in peace. My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you Mae. You shared many memorable times together . May those memories keep you strong💕🌸🌼
