Conrad Patrick Gagnon

ROCHESTER - Conrad Patrick "Zeff" Gagnon, 86, of 21 Wellsweep Circle died Wednesday, September 11, 2013 at his home after a brief illness.

He was born February 10, 1927 in Gonic, the son of the late Joseph and Fortunate (Boucher) Gagnon. He was a life long resident of Gonic and Rochester. He served in the U.S. Navy during World War II on board the USS Tuscaloosa in the Battle of Normandy, Iwo Jima, and Okinawa. Conrad was a communicant of St. Leo's Church in Gonic. He worked for many years for the City of Rochester as a tax collector until his retirement in 1989.

Zeff was a loving husband, father, and grandfather who was an avid woodworker, fisherman, and most of all gardener. He took great pride in his gardens at 93 Main Street. It was not unusual to take his family on a road trip anytime to anywhere. He just loved to drive.
