October 9, 1938 - May 3, 2022
Sherwood Ray Conrad, of Charlotte, a guy who could build anything, died May 3, 2022 at the age of 83. Born October 9, 1938 in Lansing, to Sherwood Franklin and Helen (Farr) Conrad, he grew up in the Mid-Michigan area and graduated from Sexton High School in 1956. Sherwood started working in building construction, and later retired as a handyman for Hudgins Realty. He showed his skills in construction when he helped build his son John and Deb's home and deer camp, and many other projects that made his family very proud. With a love for the outdoors, Sherwood enjoyed hunting and fishing, often getting deer or fish when no one else could. His favorite fishing destination was Cloverdale Lake in Michigan and Rice Lake in Canada, where there were many fishing trips over the years. He was also a treasure hunter, finding many treasures each year as students at MSU moved out each spring. Another pastime that he enjoyed was jigsaw puzzles, always working on the next big puzzle in a room dedicated for that. Sherwood is survived by his son, James Sherwood (Helen) Conrad, daughter-in-law, Debbie Conrad; grandchildren, John Sherwood Conrad, Kayla Conrad, Brandon (Laura) Conrad, Jacob Conrad, Madelyn Conrad, and Chelsey (Ashton) Wood; step-granddaughters, Sheri Collins and Kristy Wilmath; seven great-grandchildren; three great-great grandchildren; sisters, Jeanette Reynolds and Marilyn (Chuck) Bleisch; and former wife, Kathryn Conrad. He was predeceased by his son, John Joseph Conrad; sister, Barbara Reedy; and his parents. Friends are encouraged to support Sherwood's family by attending services or sharing memories on his Tribute Page at www.prayfuneral.com. Visitation is Friday, May 6, 4-6:00 PM at Pray Funeral Home in Charlotte. Funeral services will follow at 6:00 PM. Interment will be 9:00 AM Saturday May 7, at Deepdale Memorial Park in Lansing. If desired, the family suggests memorial contributions to St. Jude Children's Hospital. The family is in the care of Pray Funeral Home, Charlotte.
