Obituary of William Conradi
William J. (Bill) Conradi of Morris Plains, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his children on August 29th. He was just short of his 97th birthday.
Born in Newark NJ, he proudly served his country during WWII in the South Pacific as a Sergeant in the US Army, receiving numerous medals and commendations. Bill was truly a member of the “Greatest Generation”. After returning from the war, Bill completed his education at Seton Hall University and Newark College of Engineering. He married the love of his life, Catherine (Kay) and they moved to Irvington NJ and then settled in Morris Plains where they resided for over 60 years. He had a long career as a chemist and chemical engineer at Hoffman LaRoche in Nutley, NJ.
Upon moving to Morris Plains, Bill became active in the community, serving on the Morris Plains Planning Board, Board of Directors for the Southeast Morris County MUA and Morris Plains Fire Department (past Chief) for over 60 years.
Bill was predeceased by wife Kay, brother Charlie Conradi and his wife Mary, sister Marge and husband Norman, and special nephew Chuck Conradi.
He is survived by son Bill Jr. and wife Jill of Toms River NJ, son John and husband Rick Randall of Sarasota FL, daughter Laura and husband Jan Greenberg of Burlington NJ; grandchildren and (great-grandchildren) Lacey and Trevor Neil (Kai), Jadian and Jesse Smallwood (Adilee and Ellis), Erin and Bryan Dorsey (Brayden and Kane), Ross Greenberg, Lindsey Kress and fiancée Jon McKee, Michael Kress and Connor Giblin.
