Andrew John Conrad

Andrew John Conrad of Wakefield, formerly of North Reading, July 2, 2021, age 57. Andy was the beloved husband of Beverly Marra Conrad, loving father of Abby and Barrett Conrad of Wakefield, devoted son of Mary (Lucci) Conrad of Raynham, dear brother of Stephanie Conrad Hamer of Andover and her late husband Paul and Michael Conrad and his wife Carolyn of Taunton. He was pre-deceased by his father, Richard Conrad and his brother Christopher Conrad. Andy is also survived by loving nieces, nephews, and many dear relatives and loyal friends.

Andy was a hardworking and skilled millwright and a longtime member of the New England Carpenter’s Union Local #1121 for over 19 years. He was extremely proud of the many major work projects he contributed to. Andy appreciated hours spent with his coworkers and union buddies.

Andy enjoyed attending family get-togethers and backyard barbecues with friends, including time spent at the Conrad home in Falmouth. An avid golfer, Andy delighted in a good game on the greens. He enjoyed playing hockey with friends at the Everett Men’s Hockey League. Andy also enjoyed cooking, attending car shows, getting his hands dirty repairing cars, fishing and watching some of his favorites shows from the comfort of his couch.

Andrew passed peacefully with his wife by his side at Sawtelle Family Hospice House in Reading after a courageous battle with cancer. Andy will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.

A Funeral Mass in honor of Andy’s life will be celebrated at St. Theresa’s Parish in North Reading Tuesday, July 27 at 10:30 AM. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the charity of your choice.

    Dear Beverly & Family,

    I’m so sorry you lost Andy. Sending you Love, Light and Prayers to you and your family. I found this poem comforting when my brother passed and I hope it brings you comfort in the days ahead. Rest in Peace, Andy.

    Death is nothing at all.
    It does not count.
    I have only slipped away into the next room.
    Nothing has happened.

    Everything remains exactly as it was.
    I am I, and you are you,
    and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
    Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.

    Call me by the old familiar name.
    Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
    Put no difference into your tone.
    Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

    Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
    Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
    Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
    Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it.

    Life means all that it ever meant.
    It is the same as it ever was.
    There is absolute and unbroken continuity.
    What is this death but a negligible accident?

    Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
    I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
    somewhere very near,
    just round the corner.

    All is well.
    Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
    One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
    How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!

    By Henry Scott-Holland

    Beverly and Family,
    So sorry for your loss. May his easy smile and memories you had together bring you all peace and comfort. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  26. Michael Fiorello on July 9, 2021 at 8:49 pm

    My deepest sympathies and condolences to all of Andy’s family. Although I didn’t see Andy often in my adult life, the times I would see him had us laughing about the old days like they were yesterday having grew up just a few house apart. I was so fortunate to have a wonderful friend to wrestle with (and he always won), hunt frogs in the creek, ride dirt bikes, and the time we were playing with matches behind the shed to get caught but he didn’t blame me – that was Andy. Although I’m surprised and shocked to have learned of his passing, I’m so grateful to know that he lived a fulfilling and incredible life. He was an important part of my childhood and will always be a part of me.

  39. David Collins on July 10, 2021 at 12:25 pm

    Beverly, Barret and Abby, my wife Pam and I send you all our love prayers and support. I have no words to relay what your husband and father meant to me as a friend and a brother. Andy was such a huge part of my life and I know what he meant to you. If I were to try and describe him in a few words it would be “Lion Heart”, bigger than life and always first in to enjoy everything life had to offer — no fear ever. He lead the way in our youth through all of the challenges that you ecounter as you grow into the person you will ultimately become and because of him in many ways I became a better person. He is my hero and I love him and he will always be with me and with you.

    Beautiful Beverly, In good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, you were always by Andy’s side. You were Andy’s angel on earth, and now Andy is your angel in heaven. May the overwhelming sadness and loss you feel today be erased in time and replaced with the wonderful memories you shared with your Andy. Our thoughts, prayers, and love are with you today and always.
