    Kevin Cadigan was a good friend from Annandale high school. He was a decent basketball player and a very funny guy. He was the person who first introduced me to drinking coffee. I remember partying with him many times in his cabin in Virginia, with his brother Brian. He had a subtle, smart aleck sense of humor that I always appreciated. I was with him when he broke his collarbone trying to jump the sidewalk ditch in back of Saint Michaels school. That was pure Kevin, as he raced down the grassy hill on his bike, hollering and screaming, until his front tire jammed into the brick wall spinning him up and over the handlebars to crash into the wall on the other side. Later in life, after learning that I worked in sales, Kevin used to tell me stories over a few drinks and some Mr. Carter, about how he loved to torture young insecure sales guys, in his job as a purchasing agent. He’d string them along, get them excited about a possible sale, then abruptly send them packing, confused as to what they did wrong. Even as a sales person, I found these stories hilarious. The Cadigan family has experienced more than their fair share of tragedy. I feel for the family and I wish for those that are still with us, nothing but good health and happiness.

    Kevin truly loved God’s blessings of nature and could bring it to life in a photograph. His photograph s are known worldwide and will truly be missed. He was a great father and husband, Cheryl will truly miss him. His love for the men and women of the USO was unwaivering. I am very blessed to have had him as my friend and in my life. God has a true angel !!!

    I knew Kevin as a fellow fraternity brother at James Madison University, Alpha Chi Rho ( AXP ).
    He was one of the funniest guys in the fraternity. I remember having strange conversations with him! He didn’t play favorites or hang out in cliques….he was EVERYONE’S friend!

    Kevin was an awesome friend and co-volunteer at the USO. He was always so kind to the young Sailors and Soldiers and his brownies were legendary !!!! He will be forever missed.

    Kevin’s absence at the USO Corry Station is already felt. I’m the “next shift” guy who always relieved him and Cheryl on Monday. The brownies are not here with Kevin but his memory will always be. Rest well Kevin.
