James William Joseph Conran, 60, passed away Wednesday, April 7, 2021, in Des Moines, IA. A Memorial Gathering will be held on Saturday April 10, 2021, at Iles Westover Funeral Home from 3 - 5 pm.

James was born December 29, 1960, in New York to Edwin and Anne (McCruden) Conran. He married Jeanne Mesenbrink on October 10, 2010, in Las Vegas, NV.

Jim was a hard working man and loved his job working as an Assistant Warehouse Manager for Safelite for many years. His passions included fishing, grilling, riding his Harley, taking his wife to the casino, and catching a football game on TV. While he did enjoy watching NFL games, Jim was a huge Hawkeye fan. Jim was a lover of self expression and covered his body with a collection of tattoos of things that were important to him. He was proud of his life accomplishments, most notably his many years of sobriety. Jim was also a caring and giving man who felt so very thankful for the time he had as a grandfather.

Jim is survived by his wife, Jeanne Mesenbrink; son, Brian (Nicole) Conran, and grandchildren, Colton and Chloe of Des Moines, IA; brothers, Eddie (Debbie) Conran of Elizabeth City, NC, Kevin Conran of Elizabeth City, NC, Michael Conran of Flowhole, AZ; sisters, Janet (Steve) Ackerly of Elizabeth City, NC, Suzan (Mark) Finkle of Ocala, FL, Ellen Campbell of Des Moines, IA; his fur babies; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family members (including those he worked with), and close friends. He was preceded in death by his parents.

Contributions may be made to the family for a future memorial.
