He leaves behind his uncles and aunts, Daniel Penn, Nick and Jackie Penn, Chris and Shelley Martin, and Shawn and Sarah Croft. He will be desperately missed by his 10 cousins; Reiley Martin, Gwenyth Martin, Vera Martin, Seth Croft, Cole Penn, Cody Penn, Chase Penn, Caitlyn Penn, Braxton Penn, Zoey Penn and Adalyn Penn. Cade was preceded in death by great-grandparents Herbert Higgins, Florence Penn and Alice and Ted Paget. He was also preceded in death by uncles Michael Penn and Scott Croft. Cade was a precious boy full of life and excitement which he displayed every day in everything he did. God blessed him with a tender heart overflowing in love and happiness. No matter what he was doing or who was around him, his focus was to have fun, bring smiles to others and to find every way possible to explore and play with anything and everything. By quickly grasping the art of walking at the young age of ten months, Cade Landry soon found a true gift that God gave him… the skill for climbing. This love of climbing began with his first adventure going all the way up the ladder of his brother’s bunk beds. From there, he never shied away from any climbing challenge and continued to amaze and amuse those who were around him. Cade Landry was a true sports fan. Whether it was the Cowboys, Mavericks, Stars or Rangers, he was ready to watch the game and root along with the family. This brought about his joy of playing all sports. He was very persuasive when it came to getting anyone to join him in kicking, throwing or rolling a ball or playing with any sports item. Cade wanted to be outdoors and wherever he went, he would run and run and run. His joy of life was infectious. Music was a big part of Cade’s life and if he heard a song that he enjoyed, he let everyone clearly know and see his delight in what he was hearing by going into full, all-out dance moves that utilized every part of his little body. It did not matter where he was or who was around, if Cade heard a song he liked, the world was going to experience a wonderful performance filled with bouncing, spinning, laughter, smiles and many moves that cannot be duplicated by anyone else. Cade was delightfully humorous and witty, smart and curious, warm and loving and most importantly, Cade loved being at church, going to bible class with his friends, and sharing his smile and happiness with everyone. When God created love and true joy in life, Cade was His beautiful result. Thank you Heavenly Father for blessing each and every one of us with the wonderful gift that You placed within our lives.
