Mr. Rodney Dade was a long respected Funeral Director who owned Rodney Dade Funeral Home, Inc., in New York City.
Frederick Douglas Memorial Park was founded during the depression years by Rodney Dade, who envisioned a burial park where people of color could be buried with dignity.
In 1933 he established a business partnership with Benjamin Diamond and Attorney Frederick Bunn and incorporated Frederick Douglas Memorial Park. Dade selected the name of the burial park to honor Douglas and all that he did. He established a monument to Douglas on the grounds near the park's entrance gates.
The park has had a few receivorships since the founders passing's and is now managed by Patricia Willis, CEO of the non-profit organization "Friends of Frederick Douglas Memorial Park, Inc.
Willis also set the course for the park's historical documents to be digitized.
Rodney Dade rests peacefully at Frederick Douglas Memorial Park.
