Arthur Cashin

April 8, 1930 - November 1, 2022

“A gentleman and a gentle man who was loved by many”

Born to Denis and Clara (Pelrine) Cashin, on April 8, 1930 in Port Felix, Nova Scotia. He worked in the shipyard in Halifax, and as an adventurous young man, was part of a crew sailing from Halifax to India. On his return, he settled in Toronto, where he found work with the Municipality of Toronto Public Works Department, where he would remain for his entire working life. In Toronto, he met and married the late Margaret Burns (Glace Bay, NS). Together they had five children. In 1968, the family moved to the property on Hwy 10 near Proton Station. Following the death of Margaret in early 1970, he was able to keep his young family grounded and together, despite always working away. He retired from “Metro” in 1988.

Survived by his children Judy Cashin (Rick Brodrecht), Janey Carter (Rob), Nancy Petch (David), Arthur (Cindy), Dennis (Valerie). He was a special father to Kevin and Darren Pohl, and loving grandfather to eighteen and great-grandfather to many more. Also survived by sister Jacqueline, and brothers Paul “Babe”, and Elmo. Predeceased by his parents Denis and Clara Cashin, wife Margaret Burns, long-time companion Dorothy Pohl, brothers Jude, Walthen, Danny, Joe and Stephen, and sisters Monica, Excilda, and Rita.

The family invite you to join them in their farewell, to be held Sunday,  November 6, 2022, from 1-5 pm at the Flesherton Kinplex Hall. Inurnment will follow in Port Felix, Nova Scotia at a future date.
