Obituary of George Donald Cadden


 Cadden, George Donald of Meldrum Bay and King City Ontario, passed away peacefully Tuesday February 12, 2019 at Manitoulin Lodge in his 92nd year. Born August 31, 1927 in King City to John Robert  ‘Bert’ and Lenna ( Archibald) Cadden . Hiding a big heart behind a  sometimes gruff nature he will be sorely missed by brother Archie Cadden, sisters Alma Feindell and Mary (Frank) Howe as well as nieces Susan Feindell, Sandra Feindell (Charlie Minnie) & Sheila Feindell, nephews Terry, David & Eric Howe and great nephews Andrew, Christopher & Jonathan. Predeceased by brother Carl Cadden and brother-in-law Beverly Feindell. Despite the constraints of arthritis George maintained an active life into his late 80’s.  Meldrum Bay, Manitoulin Island the second home for the extended family provided ample opportunity for hunting, fishing and new friendships. Always willing to lend a helping hand George and his brothers have a special place in the hearts of long time and new residents of Meldrum Bay, even going so far as to receive a Seniors Volunteer Award from the Provincial Parliament and the Governor General in 2010. George did not have a heart attack or a stroke; he did not have cancer , he died from the debilitating pain of arthritis. One can only admire his enormous strength of spirit. Words cannot express our overwhelming gratitude to everyone at Manitoulin Lodge, Gore Bay for their compassionate care over the past two years. Memorial Service and internment in Meldrum Bay Cemetery will be held in the spring.
