Dennis James Cashman

1949 - 2012 Obituary Condolences
The baby of three strapping boys with chests and chins to match, Dennis was born in Long Beach, California. Dennis moved to Los Altos when he was 9 years old, attended Bixby Elementary, Stanford Middle, Wilson High, S Long Beach City College and Long Beach State, where earned a bachelor's degree in Recreation, although he earned a PhD in it from life. He was of the few athletes of the class of 67 at Wilson who could bench 300, and his handball skills made him a formidable opponent at Long Beach State. Dennis worked for Procter and Gamble for 16 years, serving as their ombudsman. He later became a private conflict mediator/consultant until retirement in 2010. Dennis' favorite things were his guitar, his motorcycle, line dancing, cook's corner, barbeque, and living large. His childhood friends from Los Altos remained his extended brothers for his entire life. Known for "the slap factor," if Dennis slapped you on the face and said "Love you, man," you knew you were okay in his book. Dennis' favorite expressions were "Ride to live; live to ride," "Peace out," "Sheesh," and ?"Are we having a moment?" Known for his constant optimism, warmth, affectionate and open nature, Dennis was the person you could talk to the easiest, the one who wouldn't judge but would listen, the one who was up for anything fun, 24/7/52/365. Taken from us far too soon, Dennis will live on in the hearts of everyone who knew and loved his charming wit, killer smile, raucous laugh and music collection. Forever the dapper dresser with the polished shoes, always the warm hugger, Dennis will be remembered with tender memories and love. Dennis is survived by his wife, Anne; daughters, Allison and Courtney; brothers, William "Tim" and Patrick Cashman; nephews, Brady and Tyler; nieces, Kimberly and Summer; and beautiful grandaughters, Skylar and baby Harlow. Dennis loved his family and counted his time with them as his most precious. Services are January 24, 10:00 am at Santiago de Compostela Catholic Church 21682 Lake Forest Drive, Lake Forest 92630. Anyone who loved Loper is invited to attend. Private reception for family only to follow. Please sign the guestbook at www.presstelegram.com/obits.
