Conrad Power 1937-2016

Conrad Power
Kent members will be saddened to hear of the death of Conrad – known as Con – Power, at the age of 78.  Con died on 6 May 2016, after a short battle with cancer.  He lived in Hastings with his wife, Claire. The couple have two sons, two daughters and six grandchildren.
Con was an LDWA stalwart, and had completed 13 Hundreds. He had helped in the planning of the 2018 Cinque Ports 100, where the route will link the Cinque Ports of Hastings, New Romney, Hythe, Dover and Sandwich.  One of his sons, Stephen, who lives in Hong Kong, plans to take part in the event in his father’s memory.

Con had walked all over the world, and this photo was taken on a trip to the Rocky Mountains in Canada.

Con’s funeral was held at St Mary Star-of-the-Sea Roman Catholic Church, in Hastings Old Town, on May 11.

A full obituary will appear in the next edition of Strider.
