Kaden Joseph Silveira was delivered on September 29, 2002, by his grandmother, Liza Heverly, at Evergreen Hospital in Bellevue. Kaden was enthusiastically welcomed into this world by his father, David Sanders, his mother, Laurel Silveira, and an eagerly awaiting parade of family and friends.
Kaden forfeited his life on November 10, 2018, and was immediately and forever missed by friends and family as they mourn the loss of such a sweet kind soul.
Kaden was fascinated from a young age with electronics such as cellphones and other noise makers. Over time, his fascination evolved to include countless experiments. His curiosity with technologies was broad and unbounded and his interests included Arduino, coding, and the computational world provided through the internet, as he independently grokked understanding through trial and error with little familiarity but with the desire to learn how and why.
Kaden was a sophomore at Kent Phoenix Academy where he had many friends and participated in after school activities, including the gaming club and SAGA - the sexuality and gender awareness club.
Kaden is survived by his parents, David and Laurel, brother and sister, Tyler and Zoe, as well as a host of devoted aunts, uncles, and grandparents from the Heverly-Silveira and Robberstand-Sanders families.
His memory will forever be cherished by friends and family. Kaden will be interred with his biological grandfather, Joseph Silveira, in Eureka, CA.
