He was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Ann Conrad; and daughter, Noelle.
Nicholas J. Conrad was born November 18, 1950 in Fort Dodge. He was raised in Fort Dodge and graduated from FDSH in 1969. Nick served in the United States Army from 1970 until October of 1972. On May 1, 1971 he was united in marriage to Nedra Rossman. The couple first lived in Sioux City and then made their home in Fort Dodge. Nick was employed with the United States Postal Service for over 33 years. He was a member and past president of the Branch 645, National Association of Letter Carriers, and loved his brothers and sisters in blue as family. Nick was very involved in the Golden K Kiwanis, Saint Edmond School, and his community.
Nick started life as a Yankees fan before learning the error of his ways, and began his love of the Chicago Cubs. Always a fan of the underdog, Nick's patience and "wait 'til next years" were rewarded in 2016 with a Cubs World Series win. Canada trips with family and friends were cherished above all, and he would encourage anyone to spend time with those you love, even if it's just casting a line. Always tell those you love, that you love them.
His joys were his children and grandchildren. In his eyes, they can do no wrong.

We are deeply sorry for your loss and send our sympathies to your family.
I always remember the Hillcrest Elementary School Group that was so close back in the day. I envied those who lived up the hill right around the school. When I visit family in Fort Dodge, I usually end up driving by the school and I can remember the exact houses where everyone lived. Many fond memories of Nick. He was a great classmate. May God wrap his arms around you and give you serenity.

To the family of Nicholas Conrad,
It is with sadness that I learn of Niick’s passing. I enjoyed Nick’s conversation when working at the Post Office. He was most definitely a family man holding his family in highest regard. As a mail carrier he was part of a very close group of people ther in Fort Dodge. I know he will be missed by many but most especially by his family. Rest In Peace Nick.
Nedra , my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this difficult time. May the love of those around you, help you through the days ahead.
Nedra and family: Very sorry to hear of Nicks passing from my sister Patricia who graduated with Nick. Nick was a favorite co-worker as he always was so easy going and a great pleasure to work with and around. He will for sure be missed by so many. Our condolences to his loved ones from Larry & Shari Whiting.
Always in my heart, old friend....Linda Brennan Nelson
