Conrad Ifill (left), owner of Conrad’s Famous Bakery in New York “You cannot imagine how quickly this virus can take you down,” she continued. “This is something that changes from one hour to the next; you don’t know. The realization of it (Ifill’s passing) has not really hit us. We’re just in a state of shock.” His Trinidadian wife, Faye Ifill, an elementary school teacher in New York, told the Caribbean Media Corporation (CMC), that her husband died at Mt. Sinai South Nassau Hospital in Long Island. Ifill, who succumbed to the COVID-19 on April 17, was 81. She said that Ifill was first admitted to the hospital on April 3 and tested positive for COVID-19 two days later. Growing up in a big family of seven siblings, Ifill “quickly realized there was never enough bread and, in turn, began to bake his own bread,” the website says. Herman Hall, the Grenadian-born publisher of the Brooklyn-based Everybody’s magazine, said that his magazine was “no longer listing the departed, but it has to make an exception for the passing of Conrad Ifill of Conrad’s Bakery, one of our advertisers since 1980.” Trinidadian Renee Cummings, a former organizer of the Brooklyn-based Miss Trinidad & Tobago New York pageant, said that she “lost a friend”, an elder in New York’s Caribbean community. “It’s the customers who made him who he was,” she said. “He loved baking.

As an adult, Ifill migrated to the New York and pursued a career in the Computer Data Processing and accounting. She said the day before he died after “developing breathing complications.” “When he was transferred to rehabilitation, we had a glimpse of hope, so, to be told he had to return to the hospital really shocked us. And to be told he died was dumfounding. “He was giving of his products that he took his pride in,” she continued. “If there’s anything we can take from him was his sense of generosity.” “However, he was not satisfied with this career path and decided to quit his job and pursue his dream of owning a successful Caribbean bakery, featuring Trinidadian favorites.” A note on the bakery’s website says that “Conrad’s Famous Bakery has been baking bread for over 31 years” and that Ifill, the founder and owner, “quit his Computer Data Processing job on Wall Street (in lower Manhattan, New York) to pursue his dream of opening a Trinidadian Bakery.” Ifill said her husband – who owned two outlets of Conrad’s Famous Bakery on Utica and Church Avenues in Brooklyn – was born on June 10, 1938, on Fun Rose Street, off the main Coffee Street, in San Fernando, in South Trinidad.
