From Find A Grave:

Married to Polly Marjorie Alderman, Ketterlinus High School, St. Augustine, FL, Class of 1943, in Jacksonville, FL on July 7, 1944. Conrad died in Willmington, NC on March 17, 1945.

According to the September 1946 issue of Shipmate, he was "killed by a hand grenade" at Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina on April 2, 1945. (Given that Find A Grave date is based on the gravestone, will assume it was transcribed correctly to that site.)
