GEORGE WILLIAM DADE, 66, died Wednesday, July 26, 2017 following a brief illness.

He leaves his wife of 45 years, Jolane (Dadisman) Dade and their son Joshua (Amy) Dade, and daughter Joanna (Kraig) Wooddell and six grandchildren, Micah, Josie, Matthew, Eli, Sophia, and Ruth.

He was born May 25, 1951 in Canton, Ohio to the late S. George Dade and Virginia Dade Whitcomb. He is survived by six sisters and one brother and preceded in death by one sister. He attended the University of Akron where he met his wife Jolane and they were married on September 18, 1971.

He spent many years teaching Sunday School classes and serving on Church Boards. He was often found reading his Bible and listening to gospel music. He attended Ginghamsburg Church. His six grandchildren were his pride and joy and he took great pleasure in telling everyone he met, about each one of them.
