Jim Dadenas, 88, of Madison, Connecticut, formerly of Little Silver, died peacefully on Monday, Sept. 14, surrounded by his family. He was the loving husband of Edith Dadenas for 62 years. Jim was a lifelong industrial arts educator in Red Bank, and he was awarded New Jersey Teacher of the Year as a secondary school Coordinator of Industrial Education. He was also a veter- an of World War II.
Jim is survived by his wife, Edith, his loving daughters and their spouses, Deborah Lynch (Michael) and Susan Daub (Marshall), of Madison; his sister, Cal Geannakakes, and his six grandchildren, Allison Lasko (Brian) and Hillary Daub of Boston; Kendall Daub, Christopher Daub, Stephen L ynch and Marissa L ynch, all of Madison, Connecticut. He was predeceased by his sister, Sophie.
Jim devoted his life to his family, and he endeared him- self to everyone he met with his sense of humor, kindness, and optimism. He applied high standards to the many proj- ects he always had going, and inspired those around him with his can-do attitude and joy of life. We are especially grateful to Dr. Jill Lacy and her team at Yale’s Smilow Hospital and Dr. Richard Kaufman for their compassion and care. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to your favorite charity. Funeral Services will be pri- vate at the convenience of the family. Swan Funeral Home of Madison, Connecticut, is handling the arrangements for the family.
