Conrad E Michaelson, 79, passed away peacefully January 28th, 2018 at home surrounded by loving family members. Born October 29th, 1938 in Paris, Idaho, Conrad was the oldest of four children and son of Alton J Michaelson and Nina Velda (Eborn) Michaelson. He grew up in St. Charles, Idaho attending grade school there and high school at Fielding High in Paris, where he graduated in 1957. He continued his education at Utah State University studying mechanical engineering and ultimately graduating with a bachelor’s degree in 1964. After serving a mission for the LDS church to the British Isles Mission from 1959-61, Conrad came home and married the love of his life, Jane Humpherys Michaelson in the Logan LDS temple on September 14th, 1962. They met as the two costars in the play “Promised Valley”.
Conrad worked as an engineer in various industrial settings and eventually settled into the petro-chemicals industry where he worked for Amoco and British Petroleum for the bulk of his career. He loved his work and enjoyed the challenges that came with it. He was a creative problem solver which served him well at work and at home. His work took him to countless countries and he and Jane found themselves living abroad multiple times, which they loved. He was a family man and he and Jane enjoyed raising their three children in the LDS church. Conrad was a hard worker with boundless talent and ambition. He was often late to dinner even when called. He also loved to help others and spent a great deal of his time serving and uplifting those around him. He loved the outdoors and loved to travel and learn about new cultures. He and Jane enjoyed working in the Logan LDS temple and worked there for 6 years. Conrad also served as a Bear Lake County commissioner for 6 years and was honored to dedicate some of his time and talent back to the community that fostered him in his early years. He was a kind, selfless and loving man dedicated to the service of those around him and to the Savior, Jesus Christ. He will be missed by all those who knew him.
