I remember Cary as a 16-year-old playing Parcheesi with me, a visiting 8-year-old. Definitely a kind soul! So sorry for your loss. He sounds like he was a wonderful person.

What a fine fellow! We are all poorer with the loss of Cary. Condolences to Ann and the family.

Dr. Cary Rader was the most generous professor ever! Who else would have set up office in the Hopewell Hall cafeteria? He was never too busy to answer questions or help students. He was truly unique and I am saddened to learn of his passing.

I pray that Ann and the entire extended Rader family has peace and knows joy that Cary did wonderful good in this world speaking out and taking action for social justice. With love, Reed

Cary and I campaigned together in 2005 when we both ran for city offices. Cary was patient, kind and generous beyond words, never pushing but always encouraging me to question things, usually by presenting me with a book or magazine. His gift as a teacher was so evident when we would come across his former students; they invariably praised and thanked him for making math understandable! I am lucky to have had those days with Cary. I see the world differently because of him and Ann.

Cary was a great guy, always in a good mood, always happy to help with anything. I loved his math books he carried to read in spare moments. I would ask him about the content, and he was always happy to talk about the latest in math, and amused that I had some minimal understanding.

Remember working with Cary my first quarter teaching at OSU-Newark. He was smart, helpful, funny, and kind--and always cared about the students.

Enjoyed running into him occasionally on campus in the Services Center even after he retired. Great colleague--will miss his presence on campus. My heart goes out to his family. He will be missed.

What sad news this is. Cary was a "staple" at OSUN...always there and always willing to help students. He was a great colleague, easy to work with and instrumental in setting up the pioneering Math Center in 1986. Not only did he physically help set up the computers but he was also very clever in finding bugs and weaknesses in mathematical software. His legacy lives on in many ways at OSUN. My condolences to his wife and family.

Remembering the kind, humble, gentle and caring soul, Cary Rader, brings to mind a memorable portion of the eulogy delivered for Robert F Kennedy by his brother, the late Senator Ted Kennedy in 1968. I paraphrase from that euolgy with respect: "Cary Rader need not be idealized, or enlarged in death beyond what he was in life; to be remembered simply as a good and decent man, husband, father, grandfather, and friend: who saw wrong and tried to right it, saw suffering and tried to heal it, saw war and tried to stop it, saw inequality and tried to reduce it, saw unfairness and tried to end it.

Those of us who loved him, laughed with him, toiled alongside him, and who saw him through to his rest, believe that what he was to us and what he wished for others will some day come to pass for all the world."

Cary Rader, the world is a better place because you were in it.
