After five years the family returned to Garden City and Kadin continued his education through the local middle schools and high school before transferring to Garden City Achieve.

Although to most it would seem Kadin’s life was far too short, he was able to accomplish what many strive to attain throughout a long life. Kadin touched the lives of so many people and was always there to help others in need. He was kind, compassionate, so loving, and had the biggest heart. At a very young age Kadin showed interest in firearms; he was passionate about everything to do with them and was gifted with the talent of being an excellent marksman.
