I am so thankful for a dad who loved Jesus and desired to share God's love with so many. He was faithful in ministry until his last days, and always faithful to our mom and to the family. We have many fun memories of laughter with Dad and mutual jokes and fun times. I'm thankful to have been brought up in a strong Christian home and to have been launched into a life of ministry. We miss Dad, but are so thankful that he is reunited with Mom and that he gets to see Jesus.

I had the privilege of being Henry’s chaplain at Bickford Assisted Living. He ministered to everyone in the facility and continued to touch lives right up to the moment he went home. We loved sharing ministry stories with one another and I found a kindred spirit in him. His main concern was for this nation and the state of the Church as a whole. He prayed each day for successive generations to come to know Christ. I will never forget Henry or how he touched my life and the lives of countless others.

Rev. Cadwell was an incredible man of God. His life was a living testimony to Jesus Christ and his impact on others for Christ is immeasurable. We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the entire family and pray that the comfort and care that Rev. Cadwell gave to others be with the entire family at this time. Valerie & Bill Horosz
