Arthur Jay Conrad, 68

Arthur Jay Conrad, 68, of Flat Rock, died peacefully on March 22 at his home after a fight with cancer.

 His is survived by his wife of 34 years, Helen; three children, Frank, Justin, and Tiffany; eight grand-children; three great-grandchildren; a huge loving extended family; and his beloved golden retriever, Annie. He was preceded in death by his parents, Frank, Sr. and Hazel Nickolina Conrad.

Art was his family's bold counselor. He was a native of New Rochelle, NY, and a graduate of Southwest Miami Senior High School. He joined the United States Air Force in 1962; moved to North Carolina in 1975; and retired from Borg Warner in Arden in 2006.

The family would like to thank the Hospice team who cared for Art during his last days. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Four Seasons Compassion for Life, 571 S. Allen Rd Flat Rock, NC 28731.

Family and friends are invited to celebrate Art's life at his home on Thursday afternoon at 5 pm. And as Art always said, "Don't bite anybody!"
