Obituary: Daniel Charles Cady
Daniel Charles Cady, Col. USAF Retired, January 23, 1923-November 9, 2013, dearly beloved husband of Gloria M Cady, passed away quietly in his sleep at his home in Coronado, California.
Although born in NYC, Dan resided most of his life in Connecticut (New Haven, Westport and Darien) before moving to Indian Wells, Calif., in 2000 and Coronado, Calif., in 2003.
A freshman at Yale University during W.W. II, he joined the ROTC and was inducted into the USAF in 1944, stationed on the Island of Tinian throughout the war along with other B-29 crews. Upon his discharge in July 1946, Dan returned to Yale University, graduating in 1947.
Dan joined the staff of the American Management Association in NYC, managing their Manufacturing Division and later becoming Vice President of Films and TV where he produced a series of highly successful training programs before forming his own multimedia production company, DKD, Inc. Throughout the years, Dan was an avid skier and tennis player; a member of the West Side Tennis Club in Forest Hills, NY as well as a member of the Yale Club of NYC and The Union League Club of NY. Dan is survived by his wife of 35 years, his brother Robert P. Cady (Beverly) of Kennesaw, Ga., his sons Christopher C. Cady of NYC and Dr. Stephen D. Cady (Leslie) of Corte Madera, Calif., a daughter Robin C. MacLaughlin (Scott) of Pittsford, NY and stepchildren Kevin M McAuliffe (Josie), Timothy P McAuliffe (Karen) of Holland, Mich., Brendan T McAuliffe of Asheville N.C. and Elizabeth M Jewkes (Owen) of Asheville, N.C. and grandchildren Duncan and Jackson Cady of Corte Madera, Calif., and Madelyn and Daniel MacLaughlin of Pittsford, NY and step-grandchildren Sean, Meighan, Cori and Aidan McAuliffe of Holland, Mich., and Christian and Faith Jewkes of Asheville, N.C.
These past few years, Dan was lovingly cared for by his devoted wife and a dedicated group of caregivers who enabled him to live out the remainder of his life with comfort and dignity.
As prearranged and in accordance with Dan’s specific request, there was no formal service. A celebration of his life by members of the family was held November 16th at the Hotel del Coronado. Dan is to be quietly buried at sea. He is sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
