CONRAD MARCEL REAR
Peacefully, after a courageous battle with liver disease, Conrad Marcel Rear passed on October 1, 2022 at the age of 72, with his family by his side. Conrad was born on March 7, 1950.
Conrad was predeceased by his parents, Helmer and Evangéline (nee Robidoux); sisters, Rena, Gloria and brother Eugene. Survived by his loving wife Lynda of 41 years; sons, Scott and Jamie (Steph) and brother Alvin (Lorraine). He will be lovingly missed by his nieces and nephews. He will also be missed by his many cousins, extended family and many close friends whom he thought of as family.
Conrad was born and raised in Starbuck, Manitoba and although he lived most of his life in the city, his heart always belonged in Starbuck. Conrad was a Police Officer for the Canadian Pacific Railway for 22 years. Conrad worked many jobs throughout his 72 years of life. He was well known for his handy work; he took great pride in building houses for friends and family. He was handy with all trades including electrical, plumbing, and mechanical. He was well known for his work at Minute Muffler on Pembina Highway and at Slices Pizza on Stafford Street. But to Conrad, his favourite job, pride and joy and the beat in his heart, was being a dad to Scott and Jamie and a devoted husband to Lynda.
Conrad was always making new friends, loved going for breakfast at Nicks Inn and loved a good card game.
His family would like to thank the Palliative Care team and the PD staff at the St. Boniface Hospital.
A private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Canadian Liver Foundation.

Jamie and family, I am sincerely sorry to hear of the passing of your beloved father. Please accept my condolences and remember all the good times you spent with your father. Take care. - Posted by: Debbie McLeod (Customer/Acquaintance) on: Oct 21, 2022
I can remember Conrad from his training at the Winnipeg Police Academy in Recruit Class 85. He was a funny guy and always kept a smile on our faces. I was sad when he left the Winnipeg Police Dept. However I was glad he went on to CP Police and became a Sgt. That was a loss for the WPS. RIP my friend. - Posted by: Larry Bailey (Co-worker and Recruit in Class 85) on: Oct 10, 2022

Dear Linda, I don't know if you will even remember me or my son Gary but you and Conrad were always so nice to both of us. My son Gary and I would visit you on occasion when you lived at 700 Setter and stop into the flower shop you worked at on Ness Avenue. You always were glad to see Gary. My sincerest condolences, Bonnie Dyson and son Gary - Posted by: Bonnie Dyson (neighbour from 700 Setter Street) on: Oct 08, 2022
Remember him well as he grew up by my grandparents. Best memory: he,my Dad and 2 other big strapping fellows entered a canoe race on the LaSalle. Thought they had a sure win as they were all so strong. They neglected to check the weight capacity of the canoe and ended up sinking before the finish line! Was the highlight of the race lol! My sincere condolences to the family❤️ - Posted by: Mindy Hamill (Friend) on: Oct 08, 2022
