Robert Lee Cason

Robert Lee (Bob) Cason, 87, went home to be with his Lord on Saturday, Aug. 17, 2013, at his home in Mariposa.

Bob was born on Aug., 29, 1925, in Omaha, Texas, to Aubry A. and Evelyn C. (Cox) Cason.

He joined the Navy in 1943 and served for three years during World War II on the U.S.S. Lansdowne. After returning home to Daingerfield, Texas, he married Billie Irene Kidwell from Mt. Pleasant, Texas, in 1947. They moved to Ventura in 1954, where they raised their four children and two foster children and retired in 1997 to Mariposa.

Robert is survived by the love of his life and wife of 66 years, Billie Irene Cason; his daughters, Jackie Davis of Mariposa, Barbara Jackson of Fresno, Janet Stallings-Miller of Mariposa, and his son, Robert Lee Cason Jr. of Central Point, Ore. He was the proud grandfather of Kimberlee, Kellee, Paul, Shawn, Ed, Craig, Tryna, Shayna, Chelsea and 17 great-grandchildren.

He left the family with a lasting legacy of the importance of faith in God, love of family, and the love of his country. Robert was a faithful prayer warrior to his friends and family. He proclaimed his faith in Jesus Christ as his Savior and throughout his life served the Lord in a number of churches: Snowhill Baptist in Daingerfield, Bible Fellowship in Ventura, and in Mariposa, Ponderosa Basin Chapel, Mariposa Christian Fellowship and the First Baptist Church.

Cason will be laid to rest with military honors at the San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery in Santa Nella. A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held at Mariposa First Baptist Church at 11 a.m. on Sept. 28.

Because of his love of missionary work, the family requests that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in his name to a local church missionary or a national missionary organization.
