Conrad was born in Germany. He moved to America and, at age 21, joined the Capuchin Order and served in a number of their Friaries as cook and porter, and sometimes as gardener and janitor.

Over time, the custom in the Province of singing while washing the dishes had disappeared. Conrad not only revived the custom, but improved on it by adding harmony.

Conrad was a man of prayer. He loved growing flowers and then used them to decorate the altar as a simple act of devotion. He died at St. Michael's in Brooklyn at 80 years of age and is buried in Yonkers.
