1933 – 2014
SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.— Gordon Bradley Cadman left us here on Earth to become one of God’s Heavenly angels on Friday, Oct. 10.
Gordon was born in Lewiston on May 5, 1933, a son of George C. and Louise H. (Clough) Cadman. He attended Auburn schools, before joining the U.S. Army. He spent four years in France during the Korean War.
After leaving the Army, he headed west and landed in San Clemente, Calif. There, he got a job with Reeves Rubber Inc., where he held many positions. When the company moved to Alabama, Gordon retired to stay in California. He then started his own landscaping business, All American Lawn and Garden Service.
Gordon was named “Citizen of the Day.” Whenever you saw a blue 1957 truck, you knew Gordon was around playing tricks on someone. He was a very friendly guy.
Gordon is survived by his wife of 53 years, Mary; a daughter, Kathy and her husband, Wayne Therrien; a grandson, Daniel and a granddaughter, Salena, all of San Clemente, Calif.; three brothers, George “Sonny” and wife, Brenda, of Auburn and New Port Richey, Fla., Gary and wife, Marilyn, of Lewiston and Brian and wife, Faye, of Biloxi, Miss.; a sister-in-law, Helen and husband, Bill Moses, of Liberty, Mont.; and many nieces and nephews.
He was predeceased by a sister, Beverly Wilkinson.
