He was born on December 20, 1996 in Sterling, the son of Dayne F. Coursey and Rorie K. Ivey and was a 2015 graduate of Sterling High School. As a student and athlete in school, Cade excelled in many sports: diving, soccer, gymnastics and pole vaulting. He loved music and was blessed with a gift to play many instruments including drums, guitar and the keyboard. Cade was active in skateboarding and snowboarding and loved spending time with his family and friends. Whenever Cade entered a room he lit it up with his contagious smile and charm. His generous heart made everyone feel warm and welcome. Yet the greatest joy in Cade's life was being the father of his daughter Lucy Mae. At the time of his death, Cade worked at HALO in Sterling.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother Margaret Lindsay.
