It is with sadness we announce the passing of Terry Cashin into the presence of his Lord on November 12, 2002 after a brave battle with cancer.
Terry was born in Liverpool, England on March 16, 1938. In 1955, his parents immigrated to Salisbury, Rhodesia. While he was working for the local newspaper in Salisbury, Billy Graham was holding a Campaign. Terry was directed to go to the arena and make sure there were enough newspapers there for the people to buy. There were many newspapers available because everyone inside was singing. That’s when Terry heard the gospel for the first time and accepted the Lord as his Saviour. In 1965, he came to Canada to attend Briercrest Bible Institute in Caronport, Sk. Between his school years and while in Regina he worked for Child Evangelism Fellowship. He met and married Eileen Strauch on June 1, 1968. They moved to Rhodesia in 1970 where Terry worked for Dunlop Tyres. Dunlop transferred him to Malawi in 1972, where he was manager of Marketing Services Malawi for three years. Terry and Eileen moved back to Canada in 1975 settling in Calgary where Terry worked for Southland Canada. He began in the 7/Eleven store and eventually moved to Vancouver to become Operations Manager in BC. Terry retired in 1994 and during this time we lived in Lethbridge and Abbotsford. During our travels, one of the greatest blessings was meeting people and establishing many friendships.
Terry leaves to mourn his wife Eileen of 52 years, brother David (Lillian) in Scotland, their children Shawn (Irene) in Italy, Annmarie (James) in England, Eileen’s brothers and their wonderful families in Saskatchewan as well as many friendships we were blessed to make. He is safe in the Arms of Jesus.
Due to the Covid 19 virus there will not be a memorial service at this time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Gideons in Canada/Shareword Global that would provide Bibles to hurting people here and around the world. www.gideons.ca
