Our Club President, Allan Cady, was born in Vancouver, Washington.  He has one sister, two years older than himself, Barbara Wilderman.  Allan has been an Arizona Resident for 35 years. 
During his lifetime, he has traveled to 18 foreign countries:  Mexico (Cabo San Lucas, Cancun, Cozmel, Rocky Point, Guaymas, and San Carlos), Canada, Bermuda, Bahamas, Grand Caymen, British Virgin Islands, France, Germany, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, South Africa, England, and Puerto Rico.  English is his primary language, and only language in which he is fluent. 
Allan has resided in four states:  Washington, Missouri, Kansas and Arizona.
When Allan was growing up, he wanted to become a pro basketball player.  Instead, his career was in Automotive Management, serving as CFO, then Operations Manager East Region (16 dealerships), serving two months short of 39 years with a single company.
Allan has been married to Pollyanne Taylor Cady for 20 years.  Prior to his marriage to Polly, he had three children.  He now has eight grandchildren and three step-grandchildren.
When asked about the best vacation he can remember, it was a week cruising the Danube River followed by a week in Italy. 
Allan's most rewarding volunteer experience was last year, when he and Polly were fortunate to participate in the Gift of Hearing Mission in Guaymas, Mexico.  The staff assembled by Bob Jensen was fantastic and the people served were very appreciative.  "It was just an all-round wonderful experience."  He is looking forward to going again this year.
