Cade was very proud of his red hair and was affectionately referred to as "Carrot Top" by his friends. He thought the best part of having his hair was when the girls in his class would ask to touch it and Cade would smile, lean over, and say "sure!" Cade was always a gentleman. He was always asking to carry his friend's books or backpacks for them and he never missed the oppommity to hold a door open for a girl. Cade was also very protective of his sister, his cousins Megan, Matthew and Maddie and his friends and was always looking out for the best interest of others. Cade was a deep thinker who was intelligent beyond his years. He enjoyed tending books, tiding go-carts, collecting comic books, and he could out eat the majority of his family, especially when it came to his favorite food, toma- toes. He was an avid movie watcher who loved playing with his dogs, Jackie and Izuna. He was never happier than when he was sur- rounded by his parents, brother and S'lster, and his cous'ms. His closest male role models, his father and brother Nathan were near and dear to his heart. Cade Poulos was a loving son, a caring brother, a dedicated student, and aloyal and gentle fi'iencL He packed more enjoyment and memories into 13 years of life than most people would experience in 100 years.
