He was born in Lisbon, Maine on August 29, 1931 the son of Joseph and Pamela (Poulin) Dube. On July 22, 1950 he married his childhood sweetheart, Annie Moore and together they built their house and raised their family on Webster Corner Rd. in Sabattus.
He and Annie worked on their dairy farm until they lost it in a fire in 1968. He then developed mobile home lots and sold them. In 1977 they built and ran the Village Store until being sold in 1985 he then expanded his business to include rental properties.
Conrad was a very hardworking, dedicated family man, helping all of his children along the way. He was a member of Our Lady of The Rosary Church and will always be remembered for his generosity and willingness to help those in need. He loved working and was still taking care of his rentals until he died. He loved going to The Settlement every morning for breakfast sitting at the “Big Table” and talking to all of his friends. He especially relished being teased by his cousin-in-law and best friend Walt (Scram) Bubier. He enjoyed spending time with his kids and grandkids, great grandkids and a brand new great-great granddaughter.

I GREW UP about a mile from CONRAD'S FARM. We were DAIRY FARMS as well but we did not have our own HAY BALER. My DAD (HOWARD MANN) hired CONRAD to BALE OUR HAY. We had to wait for CONRAD to do his own haying , before he could BALE OUR HAY. CONRAD would drive up WEBSTER CORNER ROAD and cross the old WEBSTER CORNER CHURCH LOT to get to KING ROAD. Both roads were still GRAVEL back then, so the traffic was light.
DAD got out of the DAIRY BUSINESS in late 1967 or early 1968, which was just before CONRAD'S BARN BURNED. He had some YOUNG HEIFERS that were housed under the BARN and they SURVIVED THE FIRE. They were brought over to our BARN and spent the rest of the WINTER THERE. That WINTER was VERY COLD and the BARN had plenty of HAY but KEEPING THE WATER FROM FREEZING was the biggest problem. We often had to take out BOILING WATER to THAW OUT THE WATER BOWLS, so the COWS could drink.
After that WINTER of 67/68 BILL BAILEY cut and used our HAY for his own COWS & HORSES. I would often see his wife JANICE and their daughters JILL & SANDRA when they came over to watch the hay being stacked in the barn.
SUZANNE DUBE and I both GRADUATED from LISBON HIGH SCHOOL the same year. We sometimes met in the morning where KING ROAD & WEBSTER CORNER ROAD joined and then RACED each other to SCHOOL. SUE WON MOST OF THOSE RACES.
CONRAD was a GOOD FRIEND and he will be MISSED BY ALL THOSE HE TOUCHED. I WAS HAPPY TO CALL HIM FRIEND!!

My condolences to the Dube children. You were fortunate to have such nice parents. They were always pleasant to me and Cliff. Whether is was about hockey or at the store or just to say hi.
