Frederick L. Cadman II
LAKEVILLE — Frederick L. Cadman II passed away on May 5, 2023, at Hartford Hospital, surrounded by his loving family. Born May 30, 1959, in New Rochelle, New York, he was the son of the late Carolyn Scoville (Fisher) Cadman and Samuel Parkes Cadman II. Fred grew up in Pelham, New York. He is predeceased by his parents and his beloved sister, Cheryl Cadman Evans.
He earned his A.B. in History from the University of Connecticut in 1981, his J.D. from Suffolk Law in 1984, and his M.L.T. from Georgetown Law in 1985. After working briefly for a taxation and accounting firm in Boston, Fred returned to Connecticut in November 1989 and started his own law practice on Russ Street in Hartford. Later he moved his office to Farmington Avenue in West Hartford. He ran a general law practice for thirty-three years, specializing in taxation, workers’ compensation and personal injury, estate planning and administration, real estate, and business formation. Fred believed in the importance of making legal services accessible and being kind to others. This was reflected in his advocacy on behalf of a wide range of clients throughout the greater Hartford area and in the Northwest Corner.
Fred took great pride in his family. He and his wife, Mary, met at UConn and had triplets, Sam, Emily, and Frank, whom they raised in Lakeville. They share many fond memories, including time spent swimming at the Grove in Lakeville, fishing, playing basketball and baseball, and watching the New York Mets. He was an avid reader, plant enthusiast, and dog lover.
His constant love, support, and sense of humor will be sorely missed by his family and friends.
Fred is survived by his wife, Mary H. Cadman; his children, Samuel P. Cadman III, Emily E. Cadman and Francis H. Cadman; his son-in-law Evan W. Dorney and daughter-in-law Trang Nguyen; his brother Anthony B. Cadman and Kathryn P. Cadman; his brother-in-law B. Daniel Evans; his nephew William F. Evans, Caitlin B. Evans, and their son Jack F. Evans; his brothers and sisters-in-law, Elizabeth and John Smith, Susan and Mark Carrier, Anne Healey, Joan Healey, Frank T. Healey III and Beth B. Healey, Martha and Charles Holden, Barbara and Michael Plummer, and Kathryn Healey; his dog Duke; and many more nieces, nephews, and friends, in whose lives he enjoyed sharing.
A gathering in celebration of his life will be held on Sunday, June 11 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Lakeville town Grove. His burial will be private, at his request.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Fred’s name to a food pantry or animal shelter of the donor’s choosing or to the Little Guild in West Cornwall, CT.
