He was raised on a farm near Norseland where he worked until his early 20s. In 1948, Conrad moved to California for a job opportunity and was introduced to Nina "Lita" Baugher. They were married on February 28, 1950 in St. Peter. Conrad and Lita made their home in St. Peter, and he began working for Johnson's Overall Factory, where he worked for 27 years.
