Paul Conrad, 75, Dies at Winter Nationals
Senior softball is mourning the loss of Paul W. Conrad who died while playing in the Winter Nationals in Fort Myers, Fla. He was a member of the Joseph Chevrolet 75 team and the Suncoast Orthopedic 70 team.
His teammate Jack Hatter said that Conrad was “an outstanding softball player who could carry a team with his bat as well as his defense. He also was an outstanding pitcher who could defend the position as well as anyone.”
Conrad lived in Ft. Myers for the past 12 years and played in many leagues there. Spending most of his time in Pennsylvania and Ohio before moving to Florida, Conrad was an outstanding sportsman who loved to fish, camp and pan for gold.
“To say that Paul will be missed by his family, friends and teammates throughout the country is an understatement. He was respected by all,” Hatter added.
