Elaine, my heart is so sad for you. Conrad always had a smile. The kids loved him. They’d tell me ”Mr. Funk drove our bus today!”

So sorry to hear of Conrad's passing. He drove my school bus route and everyone loved him. I also remember getting a ride in the cab of a big tractor. He was a fun guy and sweet man.
