CADRIN; Eugene (Gene) Joseph
April 27, 1958 – October 27, 2015
It is with great sadness that we announce that Gene Cadrin recently passed away at home. After years of suffering with pain and multiple illnesses his body simply gave out. He is predeceased by his parents, Don and Emily Cadrin and leaves to grieve his beloved wife, Joanne and his siblings Douglas (Kitten), Dan, Lois (Don), Elaine (John), Lawrence (Gai) and Jackie (Kevin). Also to mourn are his nephews and nieces, Aaron and Amy, Chad, Kris and Jordan, Brandon and Breanna, and Emily Rose. Throughout the years Gene worked at various jobs such as fork-lift operator, baker, and custodian in the Maple Ridge School District. Gene loved to go fishing, play golf and watch sports in his spare time. After having to go on disability, Gene and Joanne moved to Chilliwack to be closer to family. Gene’s connection with people was always his number one priority and he loved nothing more than to phone or drop in for a visit. Despite his struggles, he worked hard to make the best of life for Joanne and himself. There will be a celebration of his life on November 20, 2015 at 1:00 pm. at the Chilliwack Lions Club located at 9291 Corbould St. A tea will follow. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association, Heart & Stroke Foundation or the Huntington’s Society.
