Robert Stanton Conder “Bob,” age 82, of Leitchfield, passed away Thursday, Nov. 5, 2020, 53 minutes before his loving wife, Shirley, in Owensboro, Kentucky.

He was born on April 9, 1938 in Louisville, Kentucky, the son of the late Lovel and Lottie Armes Conder.

He is survived by his son, Barry Allen Conder (Cora), of Bowling Green; adopted son, Adam Ramsey, of Leitchfield; sister, Delois Smith; sister-in-law, Doris Fay Roberson; and several nieces and nephews.

Other than his parents he was preceded in death by his sister, Emma Jean Close, and brother, James Shelton Conder. His wife, Shirley Allen Conder, passed away just minutes after Bob so that they could be going together into eternity.
