He then moved to Portland, Oregon and worked as a dental director for Teamsters Medical Center until his retirement in 1998. Upon retirement, Conrad moved to Bend, Oregon for two years, but found the winters too long and cold. He missed his family and fishing in the Columbia River, so he moved to St. Helens, Oregon. He was an avid sportsman who enjoyed his yearly archery elk camp each fall in the Blue Mountains, as well as countless days in the duck blind and angling for salmon and steelhead. A life member of The National Rifle Association, Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Coastal Conservation Association, and Ducks Unlimited, he strongly supported conservation of our wildlife and the American lifestyle. Conrad is remembered and survived by his children, Lori Andrews, Mark Conrad Weitz and Jonathan Conrad Weitz, his brothers Fredrick James Weitz of Edmonds, Washington and Robin W.
