He was a current resident of Ascension Parish with the devoted love of his life, Lisa Primeaux. Keith graduated from Redemptorist High School in 1977. After high school, he was employed in various positions in the petrochemical industry, culminating in a twenty-nine-year career at ExxonMobil. Before retiring at 61, he served as president of the Steel Workers Union for over fifteen years, where he represented countless employees, making a positive impact on their lives and the lives of their families. Keith was an accomplished athlete, playing both basketball and baseball. He was also a life-long fan of the LSU Tigers and an accomplished sports statistician. Keith shared wisdom, strength and insight with all who needed help. He was someone you could count on. Choosing to be an organ donor days before his unexpected death, Keith gave the world the gift of life to others. Keith will be greatly missed by his life partner Lisa, his two sons Eric and Daniel, his mother Dorothy, siblings Cathy Cashio Bertrand and her spouse Wayne A. Bertrand, Brian D. Cashio and his wife Dusty Cashio, Carla D. Cashio and her husband Wally Salamé, Craig Cashio, and nephew John Cashio. He will be lovingly remembered by his partner Lisa Primeaux's family. Beyond his immediate family, he will be missed by a host of Cashio and Frederick cousins, numerous friends, co-workers and everyone whose lives he touched.

So very, very sorry to hear this news. I will forever remember my dearest close friend as apart of an awesome neighborhood in North Baton Rouge. He had an outstanding sense of humor and knowledge about almost anything. He spent countless hours at the O'Neill home wether analyzing the sports page, breaking down bikes or playing any sport at O'Neill Cedar Field or at "The Lot". He was a dream to have as a friend and one you could always count on! He will be truly missed but never ever forgotten. Mike

I thought about calling him just last week but let business get in the way. We were very close growing up but we were both busy living and working. We should all try to reconnect with the ones we grew up with because you really never know when it might be your last chance. You know I love my Cashio family.
