    I had the pleasure of working with Conway at Bridgestone for a number of years. A finer person couldn’t be found. We’ve lost touch in recient years but I think of him often, especially when driving by his old house on Almaville Rd in Smyrna. Rest In Peace my friend.

    Conway was an exceptionally nice and caring man. I worked with him all of his twenty-five years at Bridgestone and really missed him after he retired. He always had a smile on his face and a story to share. Prayers for all of the family.

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences. We look forward to the time when our enemy, death, will be done away with and God will restore our dead loved ones back to life here on earth under much better conditions. (1 Corinthians 15:26; Acts 24:15; Psalm 37:11, 29) Until that time may your memories, prayer, and the comfort from family and friends help you through this very difficult time.
