Conaway was born in Borger in the Texas Panhandle northeast of Amarillo. He graduated in 1966 from Permian High School in Odessa in Ector County. He is a 1970 graduate of East Texas State University (since renamed Texas A&M University-Commerce). He is married to Suzanne Conaway and has four children.

Prior to his election to the United States Congress, Conaway served in the United States Army from 1970 to 1972, was an accountant, a chief financial officer at a bank and at an oil and gas exploration firm operated by George W.
