Conrad was born February 23, 1928, to Frank and Anastasia (Fronk) Fritel on a farm near Orrin, ND. Conrad married Carol Salwey on October 27, 1952. They moved to Tioga when they were first married and in 1954 they moved to Stanley. During their years in Stanley, Conrad worked for MDU and served the community as a fireman and a park board member. He was also a pilot and served on the Airport Authority, was a member of the Golden Age Club and Knights of Columbus; also operated and managed Regis Theater and Bowling Alley Café.
He enjoyed elk hunting in Wyoming for many years with family and friends. Conrad and Carol enjoyed many trips to Alaska, Arizona, Canada, trips to the Casino and summers with family at Van Hook.
When we think of Conrad we remember how he enjoyed woodworking, hunting, fishing and trapping. We all loved his quick wit and great sense of humor. What we admired most about Conrad was his dedication to his faith and his love for his family. All of our lives are better because of his kindness, his great faith and his beautiful gentle spirit.
