DALE CADE, CIVIL WAR TOKEN SOCIETY

Larry Dziubek forwarded an announcement made Thursday by Civil War
Token Society (CWTS) Treasurer Susan Trask.  She writes: "It is with
great sadness that I report the death of our colleague and friend,
Dale Cade this afternoon.  He was indeed a major part of the
foundation of our group and a mentor to many of us."

[I remember Dale from a long-ago ANA convention meeting of the
CWTS.  He lived in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA and dutifully handled
the CWTS token auction year after year.  Stalwarts like Dale are
the backbone of our hobby organizations, leaving behind big shoes
to fill.  Our condolences to Dale's wife Ruth and their family.
Larry forwarded the following note from Sterling A. Rachootin,
another longtime CWTS stalwart. -Editor]

Sterling A. Rachootin writes: "I have to go outside of the English
language to find a word to describe Dale Cade and that word is
“mentsh”, a yiddish word meaning an upright honorable, decent
person - someone of consequence, someone to emulate; of noble
character.  A personification of worth and dignity, requiring the
highest respect and approbation; totally trustworthy.

"Those of us in the “know” realize the many hats Dale wore while
serving the Civil War Token Society.  He will be sorely missed.
Thanks for your excellent service, Dale.

“D” Devoted - Whatever needed doing, Dale was Johnny on the spot
and whatever it was to be done, it was done!

“A” Able - And whatever he did, it was done in the best way possible.

“L” Loyal - Making the Society run well was Dale’s concern and
it came to pass.

“E” Efficient - Dale took on the major jobs and they were done
in the best way possible and on time, all the time.

"Take any letter in the alphabet, and there are positive words that
apply to Dale Cade and the many roles he managed for the Society and
its members.  It will take many volunteers to step into the shoes
Dale worked for the Society to make it function as it should, and
to think one person, Dale did it all in the way it had to be done!
For example, it might be manning the table at an ANA convention for
the CWTS, or running the auction, or collecting dues, or aiding
the publication of the many books, we published, or giving reports
to our group at the Long Beach coin shows, or writing articles for
our Journal, or serving on the board of the CWTS, etc.

"A million thanks for being there for us these many years.  We
memorialized Dale in our CWTS HALL OF FAME MEDAL PROGRAM when he
was an honoree.  We knew a good thing when we had it!"
