Kaden was a 2015 graduate of Sandoval High School. He was an experienced driver and had an extreme amount of passion for driving his demo-derby car. He traveled throughout the local area, competing as his adoring fans cheered on car #T15. He also had a route in Mt. Vernon driving for the Fed-Ex company. Kaden enjoyed working for the company and shared his smile and a kind hello as he diligently delivered packages.

Kaden had a positive energy, great sense of humor, and an infectious smile that would lift others up. When you needed to laugh Kaden was the person to reach out to for support. His presence would light up a room! Kade was also a dreamer! He had goals and aspirations to move to Tennessee and start an excavating company.

Kaden was highly creative and proud to have over 35,000 followers on Tik Tok since March of 2019. This number of followers truly surprised and humbled him as he initially started his Tik Tok for amusement. Spending time with his family and friends was what Kade treasured doing the most. He was a best friend to his sisters and dearly loved his niece and nephew. Kaden’s caring personality and memory will live on with the ultimate honor that was given through organ donation.
