Obituary of Conrad Arthur Dion
On March 1, 2021, Conrad Dion, loving husband, father and grandfather passed away at the age of 60. He died with family by his side. Con was born to Armand and Gaetane Dion and lived his formative years in Spirit River. In 1983 he married Stacey Zacher and settled into life in Fort McMurray AB. Together they raised a son, Kellan and a daughter, Kirsten. He hired on to RMWB Fire Department in 1983. Over the next 32 years he rose through the ranks to finish his career as a highly respected Battalion Chief. It was his dream job; he felt so lucky to be getting paid for doing something he had such a passion for. While Con loved the job he loved his co-workers more. He loved the camaraderie of the firehall. Con was known for his lightening quick wit and his kind and generous nature. He was a genuine people person and would give the shirt off his back if he thought it was needed. It gave him great satisfaction to receive a smile or laughter in response to his antics. Con cherished the time he spent with family and friends. He was the social butterfly of the family. He loved being the centre of attention - entertaining his siblings, nieces, and nephews - putting on a show or playing a prank. His friends could always count on him to lend a helping hand and make everything fun. Con fiercely loved his wife Stacey. He showed his love daily by providing the protection and support she needed over their 37 years of marriage. He kept her laughing from their first date, through the hard times, and the good times, holding her hand every step of the way - right to the very end. They shared so many wonderful adventures. Con was preceded in death by his parents Armand and Gaetan Dion. He is lovingly remembered by his wife Stacey, son Kellan, daughter Kirsten, and grand daughter Mylah. He will never be forgotten by his siblings Gilbert (Marlene), Marcel (Wendy), Marilyn (Wayne), Denis (Colette), Michel (Rhonda), and Claude (Brenda) as well as many cousins, nieces, and nephews. If friends or family desire, donations may be made in Con’s memory to Light Up Your Life Tri- Community Palliative/Hospice Care Society at www.lightupyourlifesociety.org. Con’s family will be forever grateful to his Nurse Practitioner and home care nurses in Stony Plain. They made it bearable. A celebration of life will take place in Stony Plain in the spring in accordance with Covid protocol and the weather.
