Cadden, Robert Archibald ‘Archie’ of Meldrum Bay and King City, Ontario, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at St. Joseph’s, Sudbury. Born May 29, 1926 in King City to John Robert ‘Bert’ Cadden and Lenna Archibald. He will be missed by sisters Alma (Beverly) Feindell and Mary (Frank) Howe, nieces Susan Feindell, Sandra Feindell (Charles Minnie) and Sheila Feindell, nephews Terry, David and Eric Howe, great nephews Andrew Acchione, Christopher Ludlow (Jess Mocha) and Jonathan Ludlow. Predeceased by brothers George Cadden and Carl Cadden, brother in-law Beverly Feindell and Charles Minnie. Growing up on a farm in the 1920’s Archie learned the rewards of hard work and developed a good work ethic. He and his brothers ran a very successful construction business until they retired in 1988. Already owning property in Meldrum Bay they could now spend more time assisting with the activities in the town. The ultimate volunteer and handy man Archie with his brothers could always be counted on to lend a helping hand usually being the first ones there! At any given time he served on the Roads Board, the Services Board, the D.C.I.A. and Manitoulin Snow Dusters. He will be missed by his many friends and acquaintances; he had a wealth of knowledge, many interests and all the tools to do them. Thank you to everyone who cared! A short service and internment will take place in Meldrum Bay Cemetery on Saturday October 23, 2021 at 1:30 p.m. Due to Covid-19, masks must be worn and social distancing must be adhered to. Let’s pray for a sunny October Day! As expressions of sympathy please make a donation to a charity of your choice.
