Timothy J. Cadigan, 75, of Loop Road in Acton, Maine, died at his home on Sunday, March 25, 2012.
Timothy was born in Boston, Massachusetts the son of Timothy and Josephine (Shanahan) Cadigan. Timothy grew up in Charlestown, MA and raised his family in Wilmington until moving to Maine. He was very proud of his Irish heritage and that his parents came to the United States like so many others for a better future for their families. He held great affection for his parents, especially his mother.
Mr. Cadigan worked for over 15 years as a truck driver for Anheuser Busch Company delivering to the Boston Garden; where he also played his accordion for the players of the Boston Bruins and the Celtics. Timothy stepped up to the plate when he became a single parent and raised his five sons alone. Tim appreciated his brothers-in-law and other family members who supported him in the day-to-day responsibilities of raising his very active boys.
Tim was a natural musician and played the accordion. Music gave him a respite from the day-to-day responsibilities and he could sit and play with anyone. And of course, Irish music was his favorite His five sons were so proud to give Dad a new accordion that he had been looking at for quite some time. He read all he could on Word War II and enjoyed the many versions of the military movies during that time. Timothy was a homebody and he enjoyed family and friends coming by to visit. He will be missed by his sons; the daily telephone calls and watching him play his music on his accordion.
