October 11, 1926 – March 10, 2013
James Thomas Cashion passed away March 10, 2013 at St. Joseph Regional Health Center in Bryan. "Jimmie" was born on October 11, 1926 to Winnie and Mason Lee Cashion on the campus of Texas A&M University. He was known as one of the "campus brats" and graduated from A&M Consolidated High School in 1944. He was a member of the "Kiddie Corps" and played quarterback at Texas A&M. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science from Texas A&M in 1948. Jimmie served in the U.S. Army in World War II and the Korean Conflict.
After obtaining a Master of Education from Texas A&M in 1954, he served in the Texas public school systems in Madisonville, Odessa, and Brazosport. He retired in 1986 and moved back home to Bryan.
Survivors include the love of his life of 56 years, Lila; two sons and their wives, Paul and Jenny Cashion of Boerne, TX and Tim and Teresa Cashion of Richmond, TX; two daughters and their husbands, Marilyn and Stan Speegle of College Station, TX and Emily and Joe Endres of Fort Worth, TX. Grandchildren are Andrew, Philip, and Adam Cashion; Erin and Neal Cashion; Jeep and Vendie Endres.
He is also survived by his brother, M.L. "Red" Cashion and wife, Marie, of Bryan, TX; brother-in-law Harold Smart and wife, Jane, of San Diego, CA; five nieces and one nephew, and their families.
He was preceded in death by his parents and sisters-in-law Lou Cashion and Marilyn Smart.
Jim was truly the epitome of a good and faithful servant. It would be difficult to find a man who loved God more. His absolute loves were his Lord Jesus Christ, his family, Aggie football, and a good game of golf. He served as an ordained deacon and elder for many years in the Presbyterian Church.
A memorial service will be held Friday, March 15, 2013 at 1 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 1100 Carter Creek Parkway, Bryan, TX 77802.
