Conrad Buchanan, 39, died from COVID-19 recently. According to his family, he was fit and had no clear underlying conditions.


He leaves behind his wife, Nicole Buchanan, 37, and their 12-year-old daughter, Skye. In an interview with CNN, Nicole said that for days, Conrad struggled to get tested.

"I fought and fought and fought," she explained. "They didn't want to test him due to his age and that he had no underlying health issues."

Conrad started feeling unwell on March 14, as reported by News-Press. The local DJ got a prescription from his primary care doctor for a coronavirus test.


Conrad tried to get tested, yet he's being dismissed. On March 19, he was finally able to get tested for the deadly disease at a drive-thru testing site.

Two days later, he was given a positive test result for COVID-19 and went to Gulf Coast Medical Center the following day. On March 26, he died, becoming the fourth victim of the virus in Lee County.

As reported by PEOPLE, Conrad took to Facebook to reveal that he had tested positive. His purpose in sharing about it is to inform people whom he may have exposed to the disease. He also encouraged everybody to pay attention to it.


After his demise, a GoFundMe was created for the benefit of Conrad and his family.

Alongside a photo of himself with an oxygen tube in his nose, he wrote, "My people…. I implore all of you to be vigilante [sic] with your health in these trying days. We all can be affected."

He asked everyone to keep their distance from other people and that if they don't need to be in public surroundings, then they pick isolation as their first alternative.


Conrad concluded his post, writing that he's doing everything that he can to get his health back on track. Unfortunately, the coronavirus beat him. After his demise, a GoFundMe was created for the benefit of Conrad and his family.

According to the page, Conrad "was a dedicated, loving husband, father, and friend," and that "he worked hard to help support his family."

As the family keeps on lamenting this incomprehensible misfortune, Nicole said she intends to celebrate her husband's life when it is safe to do as such.
