He went to Boxelder Job Corps Center in Nemo, SD where he obtained his GED within his first 2 weeks there. He also took culinary classes. In 2006 he went to United Tribes Technical College in Bismarck, ND, with his sister Sylvia, studying Business Management. He stayed in Bismarck for several years where he had many, many friends.

Rivera who resides in ND. In 2010 he moved back to Flandreau where he lived the rest of his life.
He was the best bartender the Royal River Casinos ever had and he made many friends over the years. In June 2016 he had his only son Kaine E. Roy whom he loves more than anyone. He was very proud of his son and would want everyone to look out for him like he would’ve. Konrad was a sports fanatic and loved talking, betting and watching sports. He loved playing cribbage, poker, pinnacle and dominoes. He was in dart leagues with his brother Darren and Uncle Miles on Mondays then softball with his family on Sundays. Konrad was such a happy person, a big teddy bear as he’s been described as. Konrad was very generous and would give the shirt off his back if anyone needed it. He had no enemies and was great at making new friends. Konrad loved Kobe Bryant, the LA Lakers, the MN Vikings and MN Twins.
