COOL, Conrad Guy

web_Cool_Conrad

May 22, 2013, at 59 years of age. He grew up in Timmins where he spent his summer mornings going to swimming lessons and afternoons marching off to the library. His love of reading remained a companion throughout his life. He left to attend University, some believe mostly to play football. This is where he met Pamela, the mother of Jeffrey and Mimi, without a doubt his greatest accomplishments and his greatest love. Conrad was a devoted dad. He was president of the PTA, coached baseball, football, and, of course, helped at his church. Service defined him; hence, he became a Fourth Degree Knight of Columbus. Conrad is survived by his children, Jeffrey (Lacey Marshall, and granddaughter Moira), and Mimi (Doug DeCou). Conrad was everyone’s favourite sibling. He taught all of us lessons in compassion, humility, and, above all, forgiveness. His wit and sense of humour will be missed by his sisters Aline and Jocelyn, brothers Herman (Brenda) and Raymond, and his niece, Jordan Cool. Predeceased by his parents, Ernest and Johanna Cool. To honour Conrad, please sign your organ donation card. In lieu of flowers, please direct donations to Earn Your Wings (Dougall Avenue Veterinary Hospital) or The Downtown Mission. Cremation services entrusted to Families First 1065 Lauzon Rd. East Windsor 519-969-5841. On Saturday, family and friends are invited to meet at Paroisse St-Jérôme, Rue 3739 Ypres after 9:30am followed by Memorial Mass at 10:30am.
