My Story

Conrad was a lifelong resident of Hicksville N.Y. and a 65- year member of the Hicksville N.Y. Fire Department's  Independent Engine & Hose Company #2, He passed away on January 8, 2005 at the age of 91. Due to complications from congestive heart failure.

Conrad was born on April 25, 1913. A World War 11 veteran, He served in the Air Force's 8th Engineering Outfit  and was stationed in England from 1943-1945. On a professional level he was a roofer and sheet metal worker by trade. Dedicated and determined, Conrad worked up until the age of 78, performing tasks that even younger workers had trouble doing.

Conrad joined the Hicksville Fire Department in 1939 and witnessed its transition from a small company in what was once rural Hicksville to today's modern force. Over the years he served on numerous company committees, he was a member of the fire police and severed as 2nd Lieutenant and captain of Engine Company #2.

On December 7th, 1941 (which was Pearl Harbor Day) Conrad married his long time love Evalyn (Marvin). Later on through the years they had two children Conrad and Andrea Elaine.

In 1989 Conrad reached his 50th year of service with the Hicksville Fire Department and was appointed Honorary Chief. He was the recipient of various town, county and state proclamations and on April 15, 2000 former Nassau County Executive Thomas Gulotta proclaimed the day as  "Conrad Schlauch Day."

Conrad served 25 years as the Hicksville Fire Department's delegate to the Nassau County Fireman's Association. He was a member of the Southern New York Fireman's Association and the Hicksville Hicks Championship Racing Team during the 1930's and the 1940's. He was also a member of the Bug House Hose Company, a fraternal group that entertained parade goers on many occasions dressed in costumes and using floats and old fire engines. A former Triple A Baseball player, Conrad was once actively involved with the Hicksville Little League serving as both a sponsor and manger.

Our father was truly devoted to the fire department, his family and the community, He really lived a full life and went out the way he lived very actively. He will always be greatly missed. We love you dad and your memory will live on through all of us.
