David "Everett" Cashin has 'gone fishing'. He left us too soon on March 17th and will be sorely missed by everyone who knew him. Ev was a man of action - you needed something done - whether it was carpentry, yard work, construction, fishing, lobstering, car, tool or home repair or just a hand in when you had trouble - Ev was your man! And his sparkling blue eyes and contagious smile could brighten the darkest day.
He was a master carpenter who performed any job with great detail and personal pride so that he created not only what was needed, but made it a work of art. His passion and talent for fishing, especially shell-fishing were unmatched - just don't ask where he fished! And, as was his nature, he shared what he reaped with all his friends. He was a man of strong loyalties and because of that, his list of friends is infinite. And each would tell you they were better for knowing him.
Ev leaves behind his father, David, daughter, Phylycia, grandson, Decio, sisters Deb, Kathy, Maureen and Val, brother Pete, numerous nieces and nephews, his beloved beagle Lucky and his loving partner, Kerry. He also leaves an enormous extended family and friends too many to count.
His enthusiasm and unbounded energy for life was an inspiration - although it could be exhausting! He never sat for more than a few minutes, when he would find something to do - whether it was needed or not. He just wanted to be up and doing. He loved children and could always bring out the best in them. He loved all dogs and his own were devoted to him. He loved music - best when loud - and old westerns were always a go-to.
A celebration of Ev's life will be held Sunday, March 24th from 1:00 - 5:00 at the Weary Travelers, 77 Valley Bars Rd, Monument Beach.
Our hearts ache but we also know and trust that he is happier and out of pain - so we won't question where you've gone, Ev, because, with Hiko, you've Gone Fishing!
