Tom Cady was born March 7th, 1955 in San Mateo, California to Walter and Margaret Cady. He grew up riding the trains as his parents were owners of the SP snack bar located in the Southern Pacific Train Station. He grew up loving trains.
He was an avid sailor and competed on Catamarans and even competed for the Olympics.
He met the love of his life Andi and they married in 1979. They had three beautiful girls, Jennifer, Traci and Samantha. The girls were the lights of his life. Even though he really was a guys guy, he quickly became the best girl dad ever. The girls were all competition dancers, and he embraced that life for many years. He became a part of the team PMU (prop me up) dads and built the props for the girls’ dances.
Tom was an avid Football fan. He loved the 49ers and the Miami Dolphins. Even when the teams were doing poorly, he believed true fans love their team win or lose.
Traci and Samantha gave him the greatest gift of all, his grandchildren. Charlie, Skylar, and Harper were the absolute light of his life. He adored them with all his heart and never tired of talking to them or watching their tricks and antics. Towards the end they are what made him smile.
Jennifer came home and became an amazing caregiver and assisted Tom with all his needs. She was the only one able to calm him when agitated and he trusted her immensely. She is the best caregiver ever! She was his "person"
Tom loved to play jokes on everybody and had an amazing sense of humor.
As a mailman for 31 years, he loved playing jokes on his clients, like filling up their mailboxes with hundreds of ping pong balls or putting rubber snakes in them. Tom loved being a mailman and meeting so many new people. He had an amazing work ethic.
ALS is an absolutely HORRIFIC disease. Tom fought the fight as hard as he could and never complained once. This disease took so much from him, his ability to speak, eat, walk, however it never took his pride, sense of humor or love of family.
We will miss him more than words can express.
