We surrounded Conrad with our love as he slipped away peacefully on Tuesday, June 14, 2022 at the Ottawa General Hospital after a lengthy, courageous battle with cancer. This was his second round since 2017.
Conrad leaves behind his beloved sons Oliver and Henry and their mother Stephanie Anderton. He is survived by his siblings: Wayne (Jeanne), Shirley (Carl) Woodbury, Donald, Carol (Marcel) Michaud, and sister-in-law Liz as well as his many nieces and nephews who will miss their adventurous “mononcle”.
He was predeceased by our parents Eugene and Leona (nee Lavoie), our sister Lyle, our brothers Kenneth and Marcus and our niece Julie.
He will be lovingly remembered by his family and life-long friends, especially Timm Otterman & Laurie Ousley. Those who had the privilege of knowing Conrad will remember him as a calm, witty, fun-loving, and fearless guy. He was also kind, gentle, and always ready to listen or lend a helping hand. Talented in many trades – he could build or fix anything, there was always a solution. His team members/friends at Ziff Davis (Campaigner) will raise a glass in his honour!
Aside from the cancer, Conrad lived a full and active life. At the age of four he learned how to skate and ski. Hockey soon became a favourite sport. He played for the Algonquin Barons, the Canadore Panthers and later Senior A hockey in Southern Ontario. Our daring brother jumped out of planes more than once! Later, his cycling years took him across the country from North Bay to Victoria, BC. He also toured around PEI and Newfoundland where he later attended Memorial University. Still up for a challenge, he trained for marathons and ran three Ottawa Race Weekend marathons, a half Iron Man and more recently, prior to the cancers, he participated in recreational triathlons which were his favourite. On a perfect sunny day, he enjoyed riding his motorcycle. Above all, his greatest joy was his two sons - attending NASCAR races with Oliver, skiing with Henry, camping at Southwick Beach, among the many other fun times shared with them.
He not only ran this last race, he did so with endurance, will power, courage and strength of character. Conrad (aka Le Jeune) was an inspiration, a champion. He will be remembered with love, with a smile.
As per his wishes, he will be cremated and buried with our parents. There will be no funeral. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Should you wish to make a Memorial Donation in Conrad Stephen Foisy’s name, the Canadian Cancer Society – RESEARCH is suggested.
