Kenneth K. Cadaret

Shawnee - Longtime Shawnee resident Kenneth K. Cadaret passed away at his home Friday, July 9, 2021. Kenneth was born to William G. and Winnifred (Harris) Cadaret on June 30, 1954, in Detroit, Michigan. He served in the United States Air Force as a firefighter. During his time in the service, he was stationed at several SAC bases, and remembered the time fondly. In 1979 he and Susan Killingsworth decided to marry. As a public health nurse, he spent his career trying to increase the health and reduce the suffering of the public. He spent many years serving in administrative positions for the Oklahoma Department of Health. After retiring, he began working as a hospice nurse. Kenneth believed strongly that people have a moral responsibility to help take care of each other. He exercised this belief by volunteering. He especially enjoyed serving as a Boy Scout leader, volunteering on multiple community committees and donating time to the Pottawatomie County Free Health Clinic. When he was not volunteering, he enjoyed traveling, music and spending time with his family. Kenneth is remembered for his kindness and generosity.

Kenneth is survived by his wife Susan of the home, two sons Daniel and Andrew, his daughter-in-law Robin and two grandchildren, Emma and Henry as well as a host of other family members and friends.

In lieu of flowers or sympathy items the family would ask that donations be made to the Pottawatomie County Free Clinic 1904 S. Gordon Cooper Dr.; Shawnee, OK 74801 (405-273-2157 EXT 158).

A private family ceremony will be held to honor Kenneth's life.
