Obit: Robert Brady “Bob Cur Dog” Cade, Sr.Jan 9th, 2013 | By Submitted | Category: Obituaries
Robert Brady “Bob Cur Dog” Cade, Sr., 69, of Madison, left this earth for the Kingdom of Heaven on Jan. 2, 2013, with family at his bedside.
Bob was born Aug. 12, 1943 in Lexington, Miss., and moved to Live Oak in 1956, where he graduated in 1961 from Suwannee High School.
After receiving a degree in education from Delta State University in Cleveland, Miss., he was a teacher and coach in Mayo and Wildwood. Later in his career, he worked with the State of Mississippi and the State of Florida’s prison systems in various rehabilitation programs, where he was able to positively affect many lives.
His parents, Lois Brady Cade and John Allen Cade of Live Oak, preceded him in death.
Survivors include his son, Robert Brady Cade, Jr.; his grandson, Robert Bryce Cade; his former wife and dear friend, Gwen Brown Cade of Perry; his sister, Jamie Cade McKenzie (Rod) of Jacksonville; and a niece and nephew, as well as many cousins.
The “Cur Dog” is what Bob named himself when he turned his life over to God, and under that nickname began a Christian ministry that inspired many people to overcome and rise above the circumstances in their lives. “On the line with guts and God” was his motto as he spoke and motivated many groups, including A.A., football teams and students throughout the south. Bob was at his happiest when he was giving pep talks and walking the sidelines with his Madison County High School Cowboys football team.
He was a member of Hopewell Baptist Church in Madison, where there will be a memorial service and celebration of his life on Jan. 13, 2013, at 2 p.m. with Rev. Preston Gainey officiating.
Memorial contributions may be sent to his church at 4730 SW County Road 360, Madison, FL 32340.
Daniels Funeral Home & Crematory, Inc., of Live Oak, (386) 362-4333, was in charge of arrangements.
