Lawrence Frank Conrad was born to Charles and Clara Conrad on April 16, 1915 on a farm northwest of Scotland, South Dakota. He passed away on Tuesday, November 9, 2010 at the Good Samaritan Society of Scotland at the age of 95 years. He was baptized at St. John's Lutheran Church in Kaylor, and was confirmed at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Scotland.  On May 23, 1937 Lawrence was united in marriage to Alma Gall at Congregational Faith Church in Lesterville. Together they made their home on a farm north of Scotland where they raised their four children.  In the fall of 1944, Lawrence's faith in the Lord was strengthened after a farming accident caused the loss of his leg and nearly claimed his life.  Lawrence and Alma retired from farming in the fall of 1979 and moved to Scotland.  Throughout his life Lawrence was an active member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, and he was an evangelist of his faith always telling others of the wonderful things the Lord had done for him. Lawrence found great joy in being with his family, farming, fishing with his grandchildren, reading and telling Bible stories, playing cards with family and friends, and doing puzzles.  Recently, Lawrence had been a resident at the Scotland Good Samaritan Center where he took great joy in sharing how blessed he was for all the family and friends he had.
Grateful for having shared his life are children: Terry (Sharon) Conrad, Sioux Falls, Gale Conrad and Deb Conrad, Tyndall, Sheila (Ron) Goeken, Minneapolis, Minnesota, Karen (Glen) Hildebrandt, Sioux Falls; grandchildren: Jennifer (Steve) Vermillion and Dustin, Tea, Daniel (Heather) Conrad, Sioux Falls, Anthony Conrad and fiancé Olivia and Kenisha, Zahra, Isabelle, Sioux Falls, Laurie (Peter) Erenberg and Rose, Minneapolis, Minnesota, Kristina Conrad and Devan, Sioux Falls, Kelly Conrad, Sioux Falls, Matthew (Brita) McGuire, Benjamin and Thomas, Madison, Andrew (Rhyanna) McGuire and Hallie, Rapid City, Shaelean (Noe) Melchor and Aiden, Elkton, Greg and Simeon Hildebrandt, Sioux Falls; and four sisters-in-law: Irene Conrad, Esther Conrad, Yankton, Eldora Munson, Mesa, Arizona, and Mary Ann Gall, Lesterville.
