Cader was active in local affairs after the war. In addition to heading the Farm Bureau in the 1970s, he was an active member of the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco, Toastmasters, the Petaluma Area Pilots Association and the Aircraft Pilots of the Bay Area. He was a former member of the Petaluma Airport Commission and Sonoma County Area Agency on Aging Advisory Council.

"Whatever he got himself involved with, he would take a leadership role," Cader-Thompson said. "If it was something he was interested in, he went to bat for the organization."

Cader died of congestive heart failure after about a year of hospice care. Despite his declining heath, he remained active until just days before his death and took a role in caring for his ailing elder sister.

"He wanted to go to museums, he took a tour of the Petaluma wastewater plant, he wanted to go to Lagunitas Brewing," his daughter said of his final year. "And he did it, did it all."

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his sister, Mildred Weisberg of Petaluma; four children, Bruce Cader of Santa Rosa, Linda Cader of Berkeley, Gary Cader of Petaluma and Cader-Thompson of Petaluma; six grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren.

A funeral service will be at 2 p.m. Monday at Parent-Sorensen Mortuary and Crematory, 850 Keokuk St., Petaluma. Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Petaluma, 416 Payran St., or Congregation B'nai Israel, 740 Western Ave., Petaluma.
