James Wesley Conrad

    James Wesley Conrad, 51, of Nelsonville, formerly of Circleville, passed away unexpectedly on September 5, 2017 surrounded by his loving family at O’Bleness Hospital, Athens.  He was born, in Circleville, on February 20, 1966, the son of Carl Clifford Conrad Jr., who survives, and the late Rosetta Maxine Leasure. On May 14, 2005, he was united in marriage with his loving wife, Julie (Howson) Conrad, who survives.

    Jim is also survived by his son, Jarod Conrad (fiancé, Emily Bowles), of Frankfort; daughter, Sarah Whitmore, of Nelsonville; brothers, Carl C. (Chrissy) Conrad III, of Laurelville, and David (Drema) Conrad, of Laurelville; father and mother-in-law, Merle and Alice Howson, of Nelsonville; and numerous cherished aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

    Jim was a 1984 graduate of Circleville High School. Jim worked as a correction’s officer and in the field of law enforcement for many years. He was a passionate NASCAR fan, especially Dale Earnhardt, and enjoyed expanding his extravagant assortment of collectables. Jim will certainly be remembered for his exceptional sense of humor and love of life.

To James’ family and friends, I am so sorry for your loss. What words can be said to fill the immense emptiness your family is now enduring. May the God of all comfort be with you at this difficult time, for you are not alone. Isaiah 41:13 says, "For I...your God am grasping your right hand, the One saying to you … 'I myself will help you.' " I hope this Scripture from God’s Word comforts you.

So very sorry for your loss, our thoughts and prayers go out to Julie and all of Jim's family. He was a neighbor of ours for a short time but he was always friendly and even after moving, always quick to say hello and wave.

David worked for my mom at the movie theater and Jim would always come to hang out there with us. I remember him in his overalls always smiling and laughing. He will always be a treasure in my heart! He always had time to make me smile and to brighten my day. We reconnected many years later on Facebook and he was always as happy as I remembered. May his family find peace in this difficult time.

I am sorry for your loss, we grew up just a few blocks apart and ended up working together at Hague Quality Water. Jim was well liked by everyone he worked with and by everyone he met. Jim could always put a smile on your face without trying.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Big Brother Jim. I love you and miss you. You are with me. As I watched your only son Jarod take Emily's hand in marriage yesterday October 21, 2017 I could only hope somehow you were smiling from Heaven! Your passing is just now hitting me like a ton of bricks, you are really gone from this earth. Fly high until me meet again. Love always, Your little bro... Dave
