Cade's family sent out a statement saying, "Our family would like to thank everyone for their prayers. We want to give God the GLORY and we have peace in knowing that Cade is with God in heaven. Cade was full of life and this world would be a much better place if we, even as adults, would follow Cade's example. He was very compassionate, smart, creative, and above all, he loved Jesus Christ with all of his heart.
Cade was an awesome big brother to Conner and Cailey. His favorite memory verse was Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”. He was a member of First Baptist Church of Collinsville Youth Group, FCA and National Junior Honor Society.
Cade will be missed by many, but his legacy will live on in our hearts forever."
Cade's grandfather Terry Calvert also passed away on Monday. He had jumped into the lake to try and save his grandson. Funeral arrangements are being handled by the Hempen-Nordike Funeral Home in New Baden, Illinois. More details are available here.
