Armin Richard Konrad Obituary
Armin Richard Konrad

Armin Richard Konrad, 77, passed away peacefully October 14, 2019 while in hospital in his adopted homeland of Norway. He was born in Oshkosh on May 7, 1942, graduated from Oshkosh High School in 1960 and Ripon College in 1964. In 1968, he earned a PhD in Philosophy from Emory University in Atlanta, GA. Richard's first post graduate employment took him to Norway, leading a group of high school students for the organization Experiment In International Living. There he met, and soon after married Linn Bratteteig. They lived, studied, and taught in several locations in the US, the last being Houston TX, where Linn died in 1989.

Richard spent two years in Thailand as a Peace Corp volunteer in the 80s. His passion for travel and interest in other cultures lead to more ventures all around the globe with his second wife, Margot Bratteteig, whom he married in 1993. The couple spent several years in Guatemala, living and volunteering their time and talent. Richard was an avid bicyclist, once peddling solo the entire length of Norway. His diary of that trip is soon to be published as an ebook. He also loved hiking, Norway providing ample opportunities. When not on the road, home was in Norway for the past 26 years

Richard is preceded in death by his parents, Armin and Julia (Helm) Konrad, first wife Linn, and brother David Konrad. He is survived by and deeply missed by his wife, Margot Bratteteig of Sandnes, Norway, sisters Kathryn Hackbarth of VanDyne and Joy Hemmer of Muskego as well as many niece's and nephews in the US and a large, loving family in Norway.

A memorial service was held in Norway on Oct 23. Donations in Richard's name to the organization supporting the day care in Guatemala where Richard and Margot devoted so much time are greatly appreciated: Foundation Todos Juntos, P.O. Box 533, Honey Brook, PA 19344
