Jan Conroy

Jan Conroy, Director of Publications for University Communications

Feb. 10, 1947 — June 15, 2014

Jan Conroy was taken from us in a tragic car accident on the Delta Highway on June 15, 2014.

He was born on Feb. 10, 1947, in San Francisco, to Michael Conroy and Kathleen Flemming Conroy. After graduating from UC Davis, he went on work for the university for 35 years. The majority of those years were spent in the university communications department where he retired as executive director two years ago.

As a husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend, he shared his joy of life with all those who knew and loved him. His loss leaves us empty.

He is survived by his wife Gayle Dax-Conroy of Carmichael; daughter Ann Conroy Lockyer (Joseph) of Concord; brother Mark Conroy (Sheila) of Folsom; stepchildren Steve Cammack (Valorie) of Clovis, Noelle Cammack of Davis, Tom Dax (Chandra) of Orangevale, Juliann Dax of Antelope and Jeffrey Dax (Coral) of Carmichael; grandchildren Joseph, Cooper, Dovlynn, Damien, Nick, Taylor, Anthony, Cody Joe, Jessica, Chrissy, Maddi Mae, Matt, Makensie andCameron; great-grandchildren Andre and Kaison; nieces Tonisha, Chelsea and Sophie Conroy; brother-in-law Jim Heisterkamp (Patti) of Newcastle; sister-in-law Donna Owens (Homer) of Carmichael; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A celebration of Jan’s life will begin at 11 a.m. Sunday, June 29, at the Putah Creek Lodge on the UC Davis campus.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Jan’s memory may be made to the Jan Conroy Scholarship Fund. Checks should be made out to the UC Davis Foundation, with “for the Jan Conroy Scholarship” noted in the check’s memo line, and mailed to the UC Davis Foundation, 1460 Drew Avenue, Suite 100, Davis, CA 95618.
