Robert Cecil Conrad
It is with deep sadness that the family of Robert Cecil Conrad announce his death on February 10, 2020. Born on January 29, 1947, Robert was raised in Queensland, Nova Scotia where he developed a love of fishing at a young age. He followed that love into an over 55-year-long career as a bluefin tuna and mackerel fisherman in St. Margaret’s Bay which gave way to him holding leadership roles with the Nova Scotia Mackerel Association and the St. Margaret’s Bay Tuna Fisherman’s Association. In addition to his love of fishing, Robert was a man of faith which led him to earn a Bachelor of Arts in Theology in 1991 from Atlantic Union College. While he chose fishing as his career, Robert was very involved in his church and his community. He was always willing to pitch in where needed volunteering for various community organizations and church programs over the years. He embraced adventure and lifelong learning. One never knew what new project Robert would come up with or what new activity he would dive into. As a result, Robert had a wide circle of friends and connections, all of whom played a big role in bringing joy into his life. A truly multi-faceted man, Robert was deeply loved by his wife and children and the loss of his presence in their lives will be great. He is survived by his wife, Peggy; daughters Sarah (Jimmy) and Robin; grand-daughter Gemma; sisters-in-law Maureen (Russell) and Welda; uncle Murray (Julia); aunt Eva; and many nieces and nephews. Robert’s family would like to extend special thanks to Dr. Bruce Colwell, Janice R.N., Dr. Randy Colwell, and the nurses from the SSRH Mat-Child unit. A service will take place 11am on Tuesday, February 18, 2020 at Black Point and Area Community Centre (8579 St. Margaret’s Bay Road, Black Point, NS). There will be no burial service. In keeping with Robert’s love for and dedication to his community, the family requests in lieu of flowers donations are given to the Hubbards Area Food Bank, Health Services Foundation of the South Shore, or the charity of your choice. Online condolences can be made to

Bob was a rare mix of brilliant intelligence, practical simplicity, genuine humility, extreme generosity and living deep faith. We met Bob about 10 years ago when he would show up on various occasions at the church that I pastored at the time. He was the "man with the Bible under his arm." Later we had the privilege to know and count as family friends both Bob and Peggy, and to have many more blessed times together. Bob took my family to watch the tuna, we had breakfast at their home with breathtaking-view, he built a rocket with my son and enjoyed my daughter playing the harp. She had the ability to connect to everyone on a very personal level and encourage always with a gentle smile. He helped everywhere he could, though all was done without any boasting. He had a joyful glow that flowed from deep within his heart and proclaimed to the whole World his faith in a God that is very personal and near. The last book we read together just a week before his passing was "You are Special" by Max Lucado. His comment was: "I just wish that everyone would know how special they are to God. Life is so simple and joyful with Jesus." That was the last theological discussion we had... Yes, the last here. But Bob invited us all to know the heavenly realm, and I believe the best way to remember him and to honor his legacy is by looking and knowing the God in whom he believed and lived for.

Peggy, Sarah and family, Robyn, and extended family - may you know the comfort of the God in whom Bob believed and lived for. May your hearts be comforted by the many people who care and love you. Sending much love and prayers, Sara mK

Dear Peggy and family. I’m so very sorry to hear about Bob’s passing. He was such a gentle and kind man who will be dearly missed in our community. I’m wishing you strength during the difficult days ahead. Attached is a photo of Bob with my dog Lily from 7 months ago. We were at sea for a ceremony to honour Sheelagh and Fred. This is how I remember your cherished Bob - always willing to help and always with a smile.

Robert was a rare individual. He was an acknowledged expert in the fisheries he participated in; he was a man of great faith with a degree in theology; he thought deeply, cared deeply, and was a generous soul. I’ve been blessed to know Bob for over 20 years, and have enjoyed my interaction with him. He would often bring a book to church to show and talk about what he was currently reading, or just a word to find out if others understood its meaning the way he did. I’m grateful to have been among Bob’s many friends, and my sincere condolences go out to his family. I’m thankful also for the blessed hope we have as Christians, that this is not the end of Bob’s story.
