Borden L. Conrad, Q.C., 72, of West Berlin, Queens County, died Friday, January 29th, 2021, at Queens General Hospital, Liverpool, Queens County, N.S., of Statin-Induced Myopathy.
He was born in West Berlin on August 6th, 1948, the only son of the late William L. Conrad and Lalia M. Conrad (née Wolf). He was predeceased by his older sister Maxine M. Hill (née Conrad) of Windsor, Nova Scotia. He is survived by his wife of fifty years, (Margaret) Christine Conrad (née Cole) and two sons, Hayes W. Conrad and Nathaniel I.W. Conrad, both of Eagle Head.
He graduated with a B.A. from the University of King’s College, Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1969, and an LLB from Dalhousie University Law School in 1971. Additionally, he received his B.Ed. from Dalhousie University in 1979.
He was called to the Bar on February 4th, 1972, and took up practice in Bridgewater, N.S., later expanding, with his partner, Thomas J. Feindel, to a second office in Liverpool, N.S., where, until recently, he continued his practice under the name Conrad & Feindel.
He was appointed Queen’s Counsel in 1988.
He was a passionate supporter of his parish, his community, the Anglican church, his family and friends. He was a lifelong member of St. John the Evangelist Anglican Church in Eagle Head, Nova Scotia, where he provided lay leadership, served on the parish vestry, and was a founding member of the book club. He also served as church historian, authoring the book So Great a Cloud of Witnesses. His faith was of deep importance to him and unwaveringly supported him through to the end.
He will be remembered as much for his warmth, humour, kindness and laugh as for his extensive knowledge encompassing, among other things, the law, genealogy, and local history.
