TRENARY, MI – Kane Lawrence Cady, 42, of Trenary, died at his home of natural causes on Sunday, September 18, 2022, surrounded by his family.
Kane was born at Munising Memorial Hospital on April 7, 1980. He was the youngest of three children born to Greg and Doris (Anderson) Cady. Kane grew up around fifteen first cousins and countless extended cousins whom he loved and treasured dearly.
Kane graduated from Superior Central School in 1998 where soon after he enlisted in the United States Army. He spent three years in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Kane was 82nd Airborne, 1st of the 504 Infantry Division. In 2002, he started working for PLC in the United States, where he traveled the country building sawmills. During his travels, Kane met the love of his life, Mimi Shue. On June 11, 2004, they were married, and in December of the same year their son, Hudsen Cady, was born.
In August 2005, Kane and his small family returned to Trenary to be closer to his parents and cousins. Upon his return, he began working as a land surveyor with Mike Mileski and he rediscovered his love of property. In September 2007, Kane found his dream property in Trenary and decided to build a house. In January 2016, the house he and his family lived in while they were building their dream home caught fire. That didn’t stop Kane. He was determined to move on and build a house for his family. In October 2016, he moved his family into their home where they still reside.
In 2008, Kane began an apprenticeship with the Local 8 Iron Workers Union of Milwaukee. He loved welding and the brotherhood of the Union. By the time of his death, he had worked his way up to Superintendent of Ironworkers for CR Meyer.
Kane had a passion for family, friends and life. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, jamming to his favorite tunes and visiting everyone. Kane enjoyed taking trips with his parents, vacationing with his brother Shane, and visiting his sister Danelle. For the past few years, he’s had fun building a camp with his cousin, Patrick Aho, and rebuilding his old dirt bike. Kane has had many adventures with his friends, Charlie Pelto and Lisa Johnson, as well as fishing with his cousin, Jake Aho.
Kane was a devoted, loving and caring husband to his wife and an exceptional father to his son. He was always ready to lend a helping hand and loved all his nieces and nephews fiercely.
