Winnebago - Marvin O. "Marv" Conrad of Winnebago passed away surrounded by his loving family Tuesday morning, February 22, 2005 after a short but very courageous battle with liver cancer. Born May 30, 1949 in South Beloit, the son of Wilbur and Dorothea (Scott) Conrad. Marvin married Linda McCornock on October 18, 1969, in St. John Lutheran Church, Pecatonica. He was co-owner of Hazen Display Corp. and semi-retired in July 2003. He started a small business building various styles of clocks and enjoyed raising miniature horses. Marv was a member of St. John Lutheran Church, National Sporting Clays Assoc., Ducks Unlimited and Pheasants Forever. Although we don't understand why he was taken so soon, the family takes comfort in the time they were given and knowing he is now with the Lord.
