He will be sadly missed by his devoted and loving wife of 33 years, Judy MacPherson. He was predeceased by his parents, Preston Lutes and Reta Buraglia Lutes.

An astute observer and commentator, Conrad loved a good discussion after dinner and a glass of fine scotch. Whether military history, family heritage or stamps, he was intrigued by fine detail, intellectual curiosity and possessed encyclopedic knowledge.

Along with his spouse, Conrad is survived by his brother Kurt (Deborah Wheeler), sister in laws, Jean Chaisson (Gordon), Margie MacPherson, Bernadette MacPherson (George Salmaniw), brother in laws, Duncan MacPherson (Janet), Tom MacPherson (Bev), Terry MacPherson (Debbie).
