Cleman J. Quade, Jr.

December 31, 1949 ~ September 30, 2018 (age 68)

Cleman J. Quade, Jr., 68, of Jackson, passed away Sunday, September 30, 2018 at Southeast Missouri Hospital in Cape Girardeau.

He was born December 31, 1949, in Cape Girardeau, to Cleman John and Anna Lee Schweer Quade Sr. He married Kathie Banes November 21, 1968.

Cleman was a 1968 graduate of Jackson High School. He was a sergeant in the U.S. Army, serving honorably from July 9, 1968 to June 23, 1970, including one year in Vietman.  His medals include the Bronze Star Medal, Army Commendation Medal (Heroism), Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, and the Vietnam Campaign Medal.  In addition to these honors, he was also awarded the Combat Infantryman Badge.  He was a member of American Legion Post 158 in Jackson.

His work as a heavy tow boat captain took him away from his family, so when he came home he enjoyed just spending time with them. 

Loving survivors include his wife of nearly 50 years, Kathie Quade of Jackson; three children, Kent (Michelle) Quade and Kurt Quade, both of Jackson, and Kara (Ronnie) Hutchason of Cape Girardeau; seven grandchildren, Kaitlin (Adam) Noce, Cort Hutchason, Emily, Ethan, Taylor, Parker and Tessa Quade; two great-grandchildren, Holden and Lillian Noce; two siblings, John (Ann) Quade and Susan Dry of Jackson.

He was preceded in death by his parents, and a sister, Laura Pinkerton.
