He passed away November 26, 2021 in Grants, New Mexico.\n\nVaden attended elementary and junior high in Grants, New Mexico then moved to Texas where he graduated from Three Way High School in Maple. He was very social and made friends wherever he went. Although life presented Vaden with many physical challenges, he never let them break his spirit and his passion for life. Above all, Vaden loved, and when you were his friend, you were a friend for life. His love of Christ, family, and friends was unparallelled. If you knew Vaden well, you knew that he was passionate about music and was a life-long Madonna and Britney Spears fan. Nothing made him happier than talking on the phone with family and friends while drinking a Dr. Pepper. Vaden was very thankful for his Job at Stride in Albuquerque and for the Stride family where he was employed for 11 years. Vaden will be dearly missed.\n\nHe is survived by his siblings, Leanne McCaul of Grants, New Mexico; Mary Ann Collins and husband Phillip of Portland Oregon; brother in law Darwin Robertson: brothers Steve McCaul and wife Julie of Blanchard, Oklahoma; Marvin McCaul and wife Pam of Lubbock, Texas; Kevin McCaul and wife Deborah of Moore, Oklahoma; Adrian McCaul and wife Antoinette of Rio Rancho, New Mexico, as well as 22 nieces and nephews.\n\nHe is preceded in death by his parents Herbert and Ruby McCaul, siblings Mary Ellen, Gladys, and Herbert, a niece Stephanie and a nephew Herbie.
