GEDDY o@ca.on.middlesex_county.strathroy.age_dispatch 2006-10-24 published
“Mac” CUDDY was a local icon
Mac CUDDY, an icon in the Canadian agricultural business world for over 50 years and a strong supporter of his local community in Strathroy, has died.
Mr. CUDDY, 86, died of complications from multiple sclerosis at his home north of Strathroy last Wednesday, October 18. His wife and daughter were by his side.
Best known for his turkey producing operation, Mr. CUDDY made a lasting impression on Strathroy residents, both through providing employment opportunities and making generous donations to local charities and special events.
Mr. CUDDY grew up in Kerwood. In 1950, after returning home from the Second World War, he bought a family farm in Adelaide Township north of Strathroy. He invested $3,000 in a 100-acre farm and bought 1,500 turkeys. Thus began Cuddy Farms.
Over the years, his family farm grew into an international corporation that spanned two continents and became the world's largest supplier of day-old poults and hatching eggs. Cuddy Food Products became one of the country's largest producers of further-processed turkey and chicken products.
According to Strathroy-Caradoc Mayor Mel VEALE, Mr. CUDDY always had a vision and a reason to get up in the morning.
“He will be truly missed,” said Mayor VEALE. “Mac was certainly part of the Strathroy-Caradoc fabric. He provided many job opportunites locally through his large company, and never turned down requests to help in the community.&rdquo
The Strathroy-Caradoc flag at the municipal office was flown at half-mast until after Mr. CUDDY's funeral.
According to Steve DOWN, president of the Strathroy and District Chamber of Commerce, Mr. CUDDY had a major impact on the social and economic development of the area.
“Mac never lost touch with his own community, as his company expanded onto the international stage,” said Mr. DOWN. “Through his marketing efforts, Strathroy has gained recognition as the Turkey Capital of Canada.&rdquo
In addition to building an empire in the business world, Mr. CUDDY was always aware of the many needs of the community.
He donated a great deal towards special events in the Strathroy area including Turkeyfest and many sporting events.
The Strathroy Lions Club has had a long and rich relationship with Mac CUDDY and Cuddy Farms.
“Mac was a very friendly, down-to-earth, community-minded, astute businessman,” said Lion Don GEDDY. “We have a very good working relationship when it comes to organizing Turkeyfest every year.&rdquo
In 2002, the community honoured Mr. CUDDY's decades of support through the naming of the sports field next to the old Strathroy District Collegiate Institute.
At the time, the late Henk VAN DYK had many kind words about Mr. CUDDY.
“Without Mac CUDDY there are a lot of things that would never have happened in this town,” said Mr. VAN DYK.
Mr. CUDDY lent his support to everything from minor soccer to the Canada Day celebrations, to Turkeyfest and the Easter Seals campaign. He was the honourary spokesperson for the 2005 Multiple Sclerosis Walk in Strathroy.
Over the years, Mr. CUDDY was the recipient of many special honours for his work. He received an Honourary Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Guelph for his achievements in international agriculture and food processing, and was named “Master Entrepreneur&rdquo in Ontario's first Entrepreneur of the Year Awards in 1994.
He was named to the London Business Hall of Fame in 1995, and was inducted into the Ontario Agricultural Hall of Fame in 1999.
A private funeral service was held at First Baptist Church on Saturday, October 21.
A public memorial service is planned for this Saturday, October 28, at the Portuguese Canadian Club, beginning at 2 p.m.
