David Cade, 80, of The Woodlands, went home to be with Jesus on Wednesday, January 27th, 2021. He was born March 31, 1940 in White Hall, IL, the son of William and Mary Dawdy, and reared from later youth by adopting father, Kenneth "Cadey" Cade.
David graduated Jacksonville HS, Jacksonville, IL, in 1958. He then attended the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he ran track-and-field, played football, and was member of Beta Theta Pi and US Air Force ROTC. His studies were augmented at the Universities of Colorado and Texas Law. Following a stint of professional minor league baseball with the Brunswick Cardinals in 1962, he went straightaway into building a career in business and finance.
As an investment banker, employers included Union Planters in Memphis, and Zion's First National Bank of Salt Lake City. He founded Caliber Capital in Rancho Santa Fe, CA.
David Cade's true passion was music. A saxophone player, he built intricate stereo systems in his custom music rooms and loved to entertain friends and guests. Jazz, Blues, and Gospel music were the favorites of his vast record collection.
He is survived by daughter Salem (CA), and sons David Marcus (NC) and Shiloh (TX). He was predeceased by sister Diana Dawdy Chesley.
A service in remembrance will be held Wednesday, March 10th, 2pm, at The Woodlands First Baptist Church, 11801 Grogans Mill Road. The family welcomes any attendance, condolences and remembrances received in behalf by the church.
