Conrad was known by just about everyone in Security Service who was currently in or ever donned a flight suit. I don’t have the literary capacity to pay tribute to him, as it should be. Suffice to say…I served with him at a couple of flying assignments; served with him at the headquarters (USAFSS/DOR…Stan/Eval)…and can say I knew him fairly well. My fondest memories are of him at ease. He was one of the funniest guys I’ve ever met…he could find humor in just about anything and make you enjoy whatever it was. Whether it was at a San Antonio Missions game on the St Mary’s campus, sitting around the table at the Security Hill chow hall trading stories with Dwight Day, Joe Bissett, Tony Odom, and others, or simply taking a break at the coffee bar in the office…Conrad was one of life’s true gems. He acquire the moniker “WLYC”… “We Love You, Conrad”…and everybody who came in contact with him…DID!
