Robert ("Bob") Michael Cashato

June 4, 1948 - January 21, 2021


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Robert Michael (Bob) Cashato.  He passed away on Thursday,  January 21, 2021 after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

Bob was the youngest of the Cashato family and grew up in Vancouver – Burnaby area. He moved to Cranbrook in 1972 where he began work with Crestbrook Forest Industries at the Skookumchuck Pulp Mill. He retired from the pulp mill in 2005.  His early days in Cranbrook would be spent at Echo Field racing his stock car #39. He enjoyed life on a motorcycle riding around BC and fixing old wrecks.

In addition to his wife Margaret of 44 years, Bob is survived by son Paul Blair Cashato (Wendy) of Airdrie, Alberta with six grandchildren; Mikayla, Dante, Geovanni, Maximus, Adrianna and Mattea as well as daughter, Kari Anne Maki (Corey) of Calgary, Alberta with two grandchildren Joseph and Madalynne.  Bob also leaves his step brother, Hugh Hambleton of Cranbrook and a long list of cousins and friends remain spread across BC.

His parents Michael Gee Cashato and Mary Louise Lambert (Hambleton) predeceased him in 1972 and 1988 respectively.

Bob’s wish is to be cremated and his ashes will be held until a final resting place can be found.

There will be a celebration of life when it is safe to do so.
