I am still in disbelief that my brother (my handsome nerd) is gone. However, he left us with many good memories locked in our heart. I know he will never be forgotten. Conry was such a kind soul, he was always ready and willing to help his family and anyone who needed help, and he did it without hesitation or complaints, but with a smile and kind words. Conry always worried about our mama and all his family, he always wanted to take care of us, and did just that. Thank you Conry for being such an AWESOME person, you taught us so much and and we are forever grateful. Also thank you for serving your country for so many years. You were so proud of that and we are proud as well. I will miss hearing your stories of your life in Germany, but they are forever treasured.. My condolences to my mama, his children, grandchildren, our siblings, (family, friends ) and all who knew and loved him. My love goes out to you and you are all in my prayers. Conry you truly deserve your beautiful wings. R.I.P brother, I love you FOREVER and you will be missed so much. ❤❤ Doubles ALWAYS! Your sister Virginia Estrada Gutierrez.
