Patrick Cashin, 48, of Tinton Falls, NJ - husband, father, Clown, Santa, Captain Kangaroo, and all-around comedian and entertainer, passed away suddenly at home on Sunday, July 24, 2016. He was married to Terry Cashin in full clown makeup and attire in Madison Square Garden before performing in one of many shows at the Ringling Brothers Circus. Above all of his performances his greatest personal accomplishment was being a terrific father to his two young sons, Shane and James.
He gave generously of his time to the Jersey Shore University Medical Center Pediatrics Department as a clown, as a Santa, and many other characters. He worked tirelessly toward improving the awareness of clown history and served as a board member and as the President of the International Clown Hall of Fame in Baraboo, WI.
Pat gave generously of his time and talent, but also typically requested for birthdays and Christmas that we not get him gifts, but give donations to such things as the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, The Ronald McDonald House, and local food banks.
To know Pat is to know that he was very passionate about education, and finding ways to make education fun for kids. This is why he was so passionate about trying to bring Captain Kangaroo back to television. We know that Pat would want his two sons to be able to continue their education when they are older and so we ask in lieu of flowers that you may donate towards the futures of "Frinkle" and "Sauce" as he loved to call them.
Relatives and friends of Pat are invited to attend a Celebration of Life at Johnson McGinley funeral home, 2652 Highway 138, Wall, NJ on Monday August 15, 2016 between 3:00 – 6:00 PM. A service will start at 6 PM.
