Larry M. Cadieux, 74, of South Bend, Indiana, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Saturday, November 2, 2019, at home with his family.
He was born September 4, 1945 in Louisville, Kentucky. He grew up in South Bend where he attended St. Matthew Cathedral School and graduated from Riley High School. He is a Vietnam era veteran of the U.S. Army.
On September 21, 1968 in South Bend, he married Suzanne M. O’Parker who survives along with their three children, Vicki, Paul, and Steven Cadieux; one granddaughter, Gena Cadieux; his sister, Nanette Pecsi; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Paul and Margaret Cadieux, and brother-in-law, Joseph Pecsi, Jr.
Larry retired from AT&T and Alick’s Home Medical. He also was a realtor with Coldwell Banker.
Larry was a devoted husband and father. He was the best dad on the planet! He loved spending time with his kids—whether shooting hoops, bowling, skateboarding, video games…. he was there for them. He coached Little League baseball, St. Matthew’s baseball, and basketball. He loved family vacations, playing golf, listening to music, and was a huge USC football fan.
The family would like to thank Dr. Mark Priebe; the Alick family; Larry’s hospice nurse, Brittany; and all our friends and loved ones, who were so kind, caring and supportive through Larry’s illness.
