Cardon was well-known for his involvement in early local affairs. Since 1914 he managed the Cardon Jewelry Company, an institution which for many years had been recognized as one of the leading stores of its kind in the state of Utah. He served as president of the Logan Rotary Club, chairman of the merchant's committee of the Logan Chamber of Commerce, and director of the Logan Home Building Society. He also had a particular interest in local high school and college athletic teams and organizations, and followed closely the accomplishments of each.
Cardon married Jennie Murdock on November 22, 1905. Together they had two sons and four daughters. Jennie passed away on May 27, 1950, and a year later he remarried Lettie Turner Rasmussen. Cardon died from a sudden heart attack on April 7, 1952. He was 67 years of age.
