Kenneth Donald Conroy of Marianna, Florida, was born June 12, 1929, in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and passed away peacefully April 9, 2022, at just two months shy of 93 years old.
Ken lived an exciting, adventure-filled life. He served in the Marine Corps and was a survivor of the Korean War Chosin Reservoir conflict. Ken pursued many occupations and hobbies. He was an electronics technician, a pilot, a police officer, and a fireman. He worked for a time for a whitewater rafting company in Idaho and also for the Florida State Senate. Ken was always fun to be around and had a contagious positive attitude about life.
He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Etoyla Conroy; his brothers Eugene Conroy and James Conroy; and three wives – Catherine Conroy, Lori Conroy, and Linda Sterrett Conroy.
Ken is survived by his five children: Sheri Foote (Ralph), Kimberly Weigert (Bill), James Pozzi (Carole), Theresa Webster (Jason), and Coleen Berlin (Kanevin), eight grandchildren, seaven great-grandchildren, and three more great-grandchildren expected soon.
A private family service will take place in California, where Ken will be laid to rest in the Riverside National Cemetery.
