John Lewis Conrad was a gifted business man, devoted husband, wonderful father, giving grandfather, and super Redskin Football fan, with an unforgettable laugh. A shining example of all that measures a strong, honorable man. He was born to the Reverend John L. Conrad and Elsie (Bautz) Conrad.

John served in the United States Marine Corp during World War II as a Staff Sargent. He saw combat in the Pacific on Iwo Jima and Guam. Upon his discharge he returned to Buffalo, New York where he worked for the local phone company (where he met his wife, Mary Ann), became a sales representative for the H.J. Heinz company and then joined the W.H. Gunlocke Chair Company in October 1955 where he held positions as a territory salesman, assistant to the General Sales manager, Vice President & General Manager, Executive Vice president, where he expanded the company by establishing a factory in California and adding a desk line. He became President of the company in 1971, finishing his career at Gunlocke by leading a strong government sales team and eventually retiring in Manassas, Virginia.

John was a long time active member of Manassas Presbyterian Church. Some of John's other achievements included: Vice President of the Whittier Chamber of Commerce, Director of the Rio Hondo Family Service Association, Chairman of the Board of the Rio Hondo Metropolitan YMCA and a member of The City of Whittier's Crime and Civil Disorder Prevention Committee.

He is preceded in death by his beloved wife of 50 years, Mary Ann Conrad, sisters, Barbara Shoemaker, Helen McLeod, Lilah McLeod and little brother Donny.

He is survived by his son and spouse, 3 daughters and their spouses, nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren.
