On Sunday, May 12, 2019, George Lincoln Cash waded across the River Jordan into the welcoming arms of his beloved wife of 55 years, Regina Wood Cash, who had predeceased him. Lincoln leaves surviving him his son and daughter-in-law, Michael E. and Evelyn B. Cash, of Temperance, Va.; his son, Kevin L. Cash and Kevin's partner, Shannon Terry, of Waynesboro, Va. Also surviving Lincoln are the other members of his immediate family, his grandson and granddaughter-in-law, Jacob T. and Kristin T. Cash; his granddaughter, Stephanie G. Cash; his grandson, Harrison Cash; Harrison's mother, Deanna B. Cash; granddaughter, Dana J. Cash; and his great-grandchildren, Taylor Cash, Presley Cash, and Dayne Cash. Lincoln was born on June 3, 1939, in Woodson, Virginia, as one of the eight children of the late Theodore and Mary Campbell Cash. He lived in the Woodson/Lowesville area of Amherst all of his life until declining health led him to his time in Oakwood Health & Rehab in Bedford, Virginia, where he resided at the time of his death. He is also survived by his siblings and their spouses, Magdalene Mays, Delbert Cash and his wife, Hazel, Lester Cash and his wife, Daphine, Gene Cash and his wife, Betty, Hazel Stewart, Martha Meeks and her husband, Donald, and Betty Cash; as well as numerous nephews and nieces. For many years, Lincoln worked as a welder and pipe-fitter, retiring in 1982 after a stroke but continuing thereafter to be a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He frequented the country stores of the area drinking numerous cups of coffee and telling tales. He was an avid fisherman and hunter until his health prevented him from pursuing those activities. The mountains were his home and he and Regina spent many hours riding through them after her retirement. He was a member of Piney River Baptist Church. The family would like to especially thank the devoted and caring staff at Oakwood Health & Rehab who always provided conscientious care filled with kindness to Lincoln during his last illness. Visitation will be held on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, from 6:30 until 8 p.m., at the Byrum-Parr Funeral Home. His funeral will be held at the funeral home on Thursday, May 16, 2019, at 2 p.m. Interment will follow at Jonesboro Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Piney River Volunteer Fire Department or Roseland Rescue Squad.
