He was born to the late Vaughn and Thelma Conroy on January 3rd, 1942 in Petoskey, Michigan.
After graduating from high school, Don chased his dreams and started a career in software engineering in Boston. It was in Boston where he met his beloved wife, Lurline (Tish), and started a marriage that lasted over 50 years of love and happiness. Together, they had two boys: Donald Conroy Jr. and Daniel Conroy.
Don loved spending time in the sports world, whether it was watching his favorite teams on TV or playing and gaining the nickname Don “Fastpitch” Conroy in Softball. He also coached his sons’ baseball teams and had a collection of sports memorabilia to rival the Hall of Fame. Everyone who knew him could pick him out in a crowd by his Red Sox jacket and Michigan State hat. He was also an avid boater and fisherman, who passed on his love of water to his children and grandchildren.
