On October 31, 2022 at Concordia Lutheran Ministries, David E. Cadugan, 80, of Butler, slipped the surly bonds of earth and danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings and put out his hand and touched the face of God.
Born July 25, 1942 in Pittsburgh, he was the son of Jonathan Cadugan and Jane McLaren Cadugan.
Dave had worked as a General Sales Manager for F. Tinker & Sons, retiring in 2016. He was a member of Summit Presbyterian Church, Saxony Shrine Club, Butler County Pilots Association., a life-long member of the Knights Templar of Pennsylvania, where he was Past Master, and a former member of the Greentree Volunteer Fire Department. He enjoyed flying the plane that he and his wife Kathy built together. (He always said that real aviators fly home-builts). He also enjoyed puttering around in his garden and never passed up the opportunity to tell a good joke.
Surviving are his daughter, Jennifer (Ernie) Barger of South Charleston, WV, his son, Douglas Cadugan of Winter Haven, FL and his beloved cat Garfield.
He is preceded in death by his parents, his loving wife of 57 years, Kathleen J. Cadugan on November 26, 2020 and one sister, Eleanor Cadugan
There will be no visitation or services.
