1949 - 2016 Obituary Condolences
Pascal Stephen Eyherabide was born in San Francisco August 6, 1949 to Stephen and Dora Eyherabide. Pascal was raised in Bakersfield, attended St. Joseph's and St. Lawrence Schools, Garces Memorial High School, Bakersfield College, and San Diego State University. He graduated from San Diego State in 1972 with a degree in Business and also obtained a special education teaching credential. He had a passion for life, was an inspiration to his students, and loved to have fun. He excelled in sports, playing football at Garces, Bakersfield College, and San Diego State University. Educating young minds in school and sports was naturally the next step. Pascal taught at Tehachapi Elementary School, Camp Owens, and East High School. While in Tehachapi he was an assistant coach to Gary Ogilvie, his former head coach and mentor at Garces High School.
In 1973 Pascal married Marsha Hart; they moved to Oklahoma City in 1982 and Pascal began a career in real estate. Marsha passed away in 1999 and Pascal returned to teaching. In 2006 he married Cathy Kump; both were teachers in Oklahoma City and lived a happy ten years together.
In June 2015, just prior to his retirement from teaching, Pascal was diagnosed with liver cancer. He was told he had a few months to live, but due to Pascal's strong will and determination he survived longer than his doctor's expectations. Pascal passed away on September 2, 2016 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
Pascal is predeceased by his parents, Stephen and Dora and his first wife Marsha. He is survived by his wife Cathy; brother Stephen (Lynn) Eyherabide; sisters Michelle (Rich) Krizo, Germaine (Chris) Jacobs, and Bernadette (Mark) Root; Cathy's daughters Vickie and Laurie, along with numerous nieces and nephews.
