“I had a brush with greatness and didn't know it. I was friends with Markell (Hapka) in high school but I hadn't known her parents really. The one experience that I did have with Con was when he took Markell and I out waterskiing on Gull Lake. It was my one and only experience with the sport.

“We did not know Conley very well, but as shirttail relatives of the Brooks family, we received very good advice from him on several occasions.

“Con, your were a remarkable man! We always enjoyed having you and Marney, and Binky and other members of your family, as our guests at Eastcliff, your childhood home! Nils Hasselmo, President Emeritus

“I only had the pleasure to meet Con Sr. on a couple of occasions, but a true gentleman. Our thoughts are with the family and all who had the privilege to know him well. Warmest regards, Rich and Judy Sells
