EUGENE N. CADENASSO
Now living in retirement in San Francisco, Eugene N. Cadenasso was formerly conspicuously identified with the business
interests of this city in the wholesale liquor trade. He is a member of one of the community's most substantial
pioneer families, and was born here on April 5, 1868, a son of the late Joseph and Caroline (Daneri) Cadenasso.
Joseph Cadenasso, his father, came to California in a sailing vessel in the early '60s, and in San Francisco established
a liquor house and cafe in the Metropolitan building. He next opened a restaurant, which he conducted until 1875,
in which year he went to Yolo county, California. There he farmed until 1888, when he returned to San Francisco
to retire. His death occurred June 7, 1917. His wife, who was born in Italy, came to California by way of the Isthmus
of Panama when she was a young girl, and in this state they were married. She died October 23, 1922.
Eugene N. Cadenasso, who was the only child born to his parents, attended the city and country schools, and completed
his education with three years at Santa Clara College. For four years thereafter, he was a bookkeeper in a general
merchandise store, and then for a like period was in the fruit commission business in San Francisco. Next he was
engaged in the wholesale importing business from 1901 until 1909. In the latter year, he entered the wholesale
liquor trade with the Levaggi Company, continuing his identification therewith until 1919. He has since retired
to private life, although he has been conducting the affairs of the family property during this period.
Mr. Cadenasso was married to Miss Linda Levaggi, a native of San Francisco and a daughter of G. B. Levaggi. Two
children have been born to them, namely: Mario J., who is with the wholesale grocery house of Monteverde, Rolandelli
& Parodi, Inc.; and Roy J.
The political affiliation of Mr. Cadenasso is with the republican party, and he is a member of Golden Gate Parlor,
No. 29, of the Native Sons of the Golden West; Oakland Lodge, No. 171, of the Benevolent and Protective Order of
Elks; and the Druids, having belonged to the latter organization for over thirty years. Automobile touring is his
