James Adolph Conant, Sr. referred to as Adolph, was born on September 15, 1932 to Wesley Conant and Rosa Maria Chevalier in Bermuda, LA. He attended Our Lady of The Blessed Sacrament in Shreveport, LA. He was lovingly raised by both of his parents in Natchitoches Parish until the passing of his mother on January 10, 1941, which as of that date, he was warmly cared for by Aunt Cora Lee and Uncle Cy until the age of 17 years old. Following many years of working on the cotton and sugar cane fields of Cane River throughout his childhood, he relocated to Los Angeles, CA at the age of 18 years old. He joined his older brother Marvin Sr. working at Marshall Clampett Lincoln-Mercury Car Dealership washing cars. Shortly following, he worked at Capital Records as a mail clerk. During this same time frame, he worked cleaning the Xerox Building and Bob’s Big Boy under the business entity name of “Conant Bros.”. The Conant Bros. business grew and expanded to where he was manufacturing and selling his own sanitation products consisting of a commercial cleaning line and renting buffers for cleaning floors during the daytime, while also cleaning buildings in the evenings with the assistance of his wife, Shirley, as she managed the book keeping in the office. Due to the expansion of his cleaning business, he relocated to a larger building on Willowbrook Avenue in Compton, CA. At the same time, he landed a monumental contract with the Long Beach Naval Shipyard cleaning the entire Naval Shipyard’s docks and parking lots. In February 1954, James Adolph Conant, Sr. married Shirley Ann Patterson in Los Angeles, CA. They resided in Los Angeles and eventually relocated to Compton, CA where they raised three exceptional children, James Adolph Jr., Denelle and Lori. Following 26 years of marriage to Shirley, the two parted ways and he later commenced a relationship with Tanya Davis, and thereafter were blessed with a son, Adreon Conant. Adolph loved fishing, camping, and hunting. He enjoyed deep sea and ocean fishing and hunting in Northern California with Adolph Jr., his brothers, uncles and friends. In his retirement years, he resided in Hemet, CA for over 25 years and towards his later years relocated to the home of his eldest son, James Adolph Jr. in Pearl River, LA. His steadfast wishes were always to “go back home to Cane River”, where he was born and raised in Natchitoches, LA as he would always say, “I want to go back home and be with Mother on Cane River.” He is preceded in death by brothers Will Conant, Marvin Conant and Ed Conant.
