Steven D. Conrad, 58, of Jerseyville, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, July 25, 2022 at his residence.
Steve was born in Carrollton, Illinois on Nov. 16, 1963, and was the youngest of five children born to Lewis and Norma (Howland) Conrad.
Steve married Cindy (Walz) Conrad on Sept. 29, 1990 and they shared 31 wonderful years together.
Steve was a simple man who embraced his time with family, friends, and his fur babies, Daisy and Squeak. He loved tending to his garden so he could share his produce with ¨the whole county.” He dedicated as much time as he could to his passion of deer hunting.
For those lucky enough to know him, Steve will be remembered as a man with the kindest heart. He never met a stranger and was always willing to help out anyone in need. Steve was the life of every party and his smile was truly contagious.
