Conrad Tomlinson was born on October 24, 1961 in Kingston, Jamaica to Mervis Duff Porter and Neville Tomlinson (deceased). He moved to the United States when he was seven years old, leaving his sister Marie in Jamaica, and joined his mother and step-father David Karl Malcolm (deceased) in Brooklyn, New York. Shortly after, the family moved to Queens Village where Conrad was raised with his older brother Wayne and younger sister Karleen.

When Conrad was 26, he married Mindy Gimbel on February 16, 1988 and they had two children together, Brian and Randy. Although Conrad and Mindy divorced when the children were young, he remained close to the entire family and considered his in-laws his own extended family. They did not have a typical divorced relationship, and shared holidays and celebrations together with their children. Conrad even became very close to Mindy’s husband Jim, and their children, Chelsea and Madison, who knew him as Uncle Conrad.

He had a heart of gold and always offered a helping hand whenever needed. He loved to work, and he loved his coworkers, always telling stories about the jobsites he had been on. Conrad loved to talk and always had funny stories to share with an infectious laugh that everyone loved. He shared his joy for movies and laughter with his boys. While he loved his westerns, kung-Fu, and action films, Brian and Randy were forever making fun of him for his taste in “B” movies.

Growing up in Queens Village and hanging out at “The Plaza” is where he found some of his life-long friends. Their relationships proved that you do not need blood to be considered family, and what they had was a very special bond. He considered so many of his friends and their families as his own, because of all the time spent in each other’s homes. There are too many wonderful stories to share, but he will forever be remembered as that loyal friend who was always there for you, no questions asked.

RIP Conrad you were one of the guys I always idolized growing up! You were always so cool but always ready to throw down too at a moment's notice! We didn't run in the same circles cause we were a little younger but we always knew that if we ran into trouble we could always go to the Plaza and get our Big Q V brothers to back us up lol. Even though everyone goes their separate ways in life I see looking through your pics you kept a lot of friends in your life from QV that says a lot about friendship and loyalty! Looks like you led a good and fulfilling life! Gone too soon was always looking for you at the reunion guess ill have to wait for the big QV one in the sky! God Bless my friend!💔

You weren't just hubby's best friend you were family. I'm so going to miss you coming over to "help" working on the backyard and it turning into you two trading "remember when" stories that made me question your sanity.
