Dr. George Ledyard Conrad, VMD, 90, formerly of Rome, Pa., died on Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2007, in Sault Sainte Marie, Mich. George was born on Sept. 22, 1917, in South Gibson, Pa., a son of the late Edmund Frank Conrad and Mary Isabel Ledyard Conrad. He attended local schools in South Gibson and in 1936 he graduated from Wyoming Seminary in Kingston, Pa. Following graduation he attended Penn State for one year, where he obtained his pre-veterinary requirements. George continued his education at the University of Pennsylvania and graduated in 1942 with a Veterinary Medical Doctor Degree. During his years at Penn he was introduced to Rome and vet medicine firsthand when he spent summers assisting Dr. Isaac Stoll in his practice. His career began when he worked full time for Dr. Stoll, and continued when he opened his own practice in 1946. In 1945 George married local Rome native Ida May Parks. She proved a willing and very able assistant and continued working side by side with him until 1999, when he retired. Ida May predeceased him on Oct. 25, 2003. George is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Mary Louise and Richard Tuhro of Sault Sainte Marie; his grandsons, Matthew Conrad Tuhro and his wife, Kimberly Tuhro, of Sault Sainte Marie, and Douglas Richard Tuhro of Webster, N.Y.; and his great-grandson, Tyler Bellinger Tuhro of Sault Sainte Marie.
