James Kade Baldwin, 24, of Casper WY, was killed while celebrating his birthday, on October 4th, 2013 in Casper, WY.
Kade was born on October 3rd 1989 in Rock Springs, WY son of Ken and Roseann Baldwin. He lit up every room with his smile and he had the kindest heart anyone could ever know. From the time of his birth he was the light of all of our lives. He was a wonderful young man, always putting his family first. Kade graduated from Green River High School in 2007. He had suffered many hardships in his life but always took them in stride with a smile on his face. He was a two time cancer survivor. During his second bout with cancer his body was so sick that they had to stop his chemotherapy early for fear he couldn’t handle it, he still maintained to everyone that he was fine and kept a smile on his face.
Kade was a student at IBEW Apprenticeship where he studied to be an Electrician. He was employed at Automation and Electronics where he worked as an Electrician. His interests included making everybody smile, guitar, music, food-especially his Mama’s cooking, working on old trucks, hunting, fishing, camping, welding, being an electrician, and spending time with family and friends. Kade had a strong desire to have a family of his own and poured his love onto his nieces, nephews, and friends’ children. To know him is to LOVE him.
