Remembering Allen Cadero

R.I.P Allen Cadero 1951-2012. Many folks are remembering the good times they had with Allen Cadero and the "Merry Band of Misfits"...a bunch of kids who graduated from James Marshall High School in West Sacramento. Allen was an active citizen in our community and served on many local boards and committees including the West Sacramento Parks and Community Services Commission, West Sacramento Historical Society, The West Sacramento Arts Guild, and the Special Olympics. Allen was named Citizen of the Year by the California Parks and Recreation Society in 1994 for his extensive involvement in the community. Allen, the entrepreneur, had successful business partnerships in the Sacramento Valley and opened Cloth Country on Jefferson Boulevard, moving it to the Merkley Ave location then to Old Sacramento. Family and friends will be gathering for a private memorial.

Missing my friend who marched to the sound of a different drum. He cared about people, and worked tirelessly for the community he loved. He had your back if you really needed him...just had to ask. Opinionated...but would listen to all the facts when it counted. Allen was friends with folks of all walks of life, and enjjoyed them all. Caroln

He loved a good verbal joust, his dog "Shorty", the Niners, female Indycar drivers, electronic toys & a hearty laugh.
