Bondye Bon. 
(God is good.)


Alfred Robert Nader, fondly known as Dadasse, peacefully passed away at the age of 88 in Brooklyn, NY, on April 3, 2024, surrounded by his loving family. Born on August 15, 1935, Alfred was a devoted husband to Adeline Nader and a cherished father to his three children. Alfred's legacy is defined by his kind and generous heart, his unwavering courage in the face of adversity, and his steadfast commitment to his family. A hardworking provider, he always placed the needs of his loved ones above his own, ensuring their well-being in every possible way. With his infectious sense of humor and compassionate nature, Alfred brightened the lives of all those around him, bringing laughter and joy to every gathering. His absence will be deeply felt by all who had the privilege of knowing him.In his own profound words, Alfred once said, "Life is too short to waste on negativity, so always choose kindness and love." This sentiment encapsulates the essence of his character and serves as a lasting testament to his enduring spirit. Alfred is survived by his devoted wife of 55 years, Adeline Nader; his daughters Nadine, Sarita, and Linda, son-in-law Reginald Jeanmarie; his grandchildren Anthony Nader, Eunique Vandecruize, Julian Jeanmarie, and Jeremiah Vandecruize, as well as a host of other family members and close relatives. A funeral service to celebrate Alfred's remarkable life will be held at Caribe Funeral Home on April 12, 2024. Let us gather together to honor his memory and pay tribute to the profound impact he had on the lives of countless individuals with his resilience, compassion, and warmth. May he rest in eternal peace.

Mr. Nader, you will be missed. A true gentleman and a model dad, grandfather, and neighbor. You were always so pleasant and gracious whenever I saw you and I'm honored to say I was able to grow up with you as a neighbor. Thank you for all the years and may you sleep in peace!

Dear Adeline & Family, we were so sorry to hear that Dadasse had passed. He was so loved by all who knew him. I often remember the story that my husband Mark would tell. Aldeline, that he was the one that put you and Dadasse together. He said one day that he took your hand and placed it in Dadasse hand. He said the rest is History. I just bet that Mark welcomed him home. Adeline and Family you have our Deepest Sympathy. Dadasse R.I.P.

What is a good father ? Someone who truly cares for his family, protects and works hard for his family, Who sets a good example, teaches his children about the rights and wrongs, always finds time and gives all of himself to his family, who is a guidance, a refuge for his family, who is kind, loving, reassures yet is a strong and stable foundation for the family,
Over the years, you were blessed to have had such a great father, he was such a loving husband for Tante Didine, treasure the memories, thank God for this CHANCE to have had him in your life for so long. He was admired and loved by so many members of the family.
RIP dear uncle Dadas. (from Mitsu, Oceanne and Georges).

Dear uncle Dadasse. You were the glue that kept the family together, even after all those years and all of us getting older and not travelling towards each other as much anymore. You made sure to keep the love, warmth and connection going nonetheless. It wasn’t your birthday or Christmas or New Years until you received tonton Dadasse and auntie Didine’s precious cards in the mail. He always made sure to remember everyone. He made it a priority to forget no one of his friends and family, all over the world. We are now paying tribute to you, from all the world, from me here in Montreal, Canada to tell you how much you were loved and respected by us all. We will never forget what amazing human being man’s man you were. All my love for you and all the love is reciprocated by me, and the Cadet and Gousse’s family in Montreal. 🌺❤️☀️🥂🙏🙏🙏

Tonton Dadasse was the only name I knew him by. He was the only brother of my father, Lolo that I knew. I appreciated our many talk of family unity. He, in part, was influential in my devotion and loyalty to family and relatives. He provided wise council to understanding and forgiving grandma Titine and Lolo. I enjoyed his historical retelling of our family lineage and saga. He was the only paternal relative who inquired consistently of my daughter's well-being during her battle with cancer. He always acknowledged my strength and resilience. I'm comforted that I've fond memories. By God's grace and mercy, we'll be reunited in the heavenly realm. May God's love comfort ALL of us.
Love, your niece Rachelle.

I’m incredibly proud to be your daughter. I hope you know how much I adore you, appreciate you and am so grateful for all your sacrifices for me. I know one day we will meet again. We’ll tour all the historic landmarks and enjoy great adventures.
