Obituary

Dwight Allen Cashier, 67, of Platte City, Missouri, succumbed to Parkinson’s on March 29, 2019 surrounded by his family. Born October 8, 1951, in Merriam, Kansas, he was the son of the late Albert Joseph Cashier and Ava Carol Hoppes Cashier. A lifetime lover of music, Dwight received first in state in trumpet at Shawnee Mission North in 1969. He was of a member of the University of Kansas Marching Band and the KU Jazz Ensemble. He graduated KU with honors going on to earn a Doctorate of Medicine at the University of Kansas School of Medicine. He was a respected family physician, certified in Geriatric Medicine, and worked for 40 years in the field. He had practices in Platte City and Parkville and was the medical director at Alpine North. Having the heart of a servant and being a dedicated student of the Bible, he served in many roles at the United Methodist Church of Platte City, including on the Board of Trustees and as an adult Sunday School teacher.

He loved to travel, exploring the United States National Parks and beyond. He famously cajoled his children into completing in hikes with him by saying that trails were “so easy that even a one legged man could do it,” only to actually encounter a one-legged man on a Zion National Park trail.

Dwight was a huge Jayhawks and Royals fan, he loved to go to the Royals firework nights. He also hosted huge family get-togethers on the 4th of July, featuring big firework bonanzas. Light off fireworks in remembrance of Dwight. Visitation is scheduled for 5-7pm on Tuesday, April 2nd at Rollins Funeral Home in Platte City. The funeral will be held on Wednesday, April 3rd at 11am at the United Methodist Church of Platte City. Dwight is survived by his wife of 42 years, Joyce, and their three children, Susanne, Patricia and David, and one grandchild Jocelyn, brother John and sisters Julie Cashier Straughan of Hellam, Pennsylvania and Yvonne Cashier Brendecke of Tempe, Arizona, and 21 nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the United Methodist Church of Platte City or the Parkinson’s Foundation.

I was 20 years old when I moved from the tiny town of Brookfield, Missouri to the bright lights of Kansas City! A customer in the bank drive-through gave me Dr. Dwight Allen Cashier's name and number and said he was the absolute BEST doctor ever! I made an appointment and went to see him. I'm 55 years old now and Dwight Cashier had been my primary doctor for over 30 years, until the day he left the Saint Luke's Barry Road location.

Just a few short years ago, I was absolutely devastated when I called to make an appointment and they said the Parkinson's had forced Dr. Cahsier to leave. He had told me a few months before that he was planning to practice at least another year. However, he didn't know that he would leave just a few weeks later. I was devastated by the news! I never had the opportunity to tell him what an impact he made in life or how much his true concern meant more than words. I never even got to say "goodbye." Dr. Cashier was like the father I never had and had been with me every step of the way through many physical maladies, many surgeries, and emotional trauma, including 7 hip replacements, the first when I was just 38 years old. I couldn't imagine a world without him! It always seems so unfair that the most precious, the most loving, and those who have the most to give the world, leave us way too soon!

One issue I frequently contend with is sebaceous cysts. Every single time, Dr. Cashier was like "a kid in a candy store," so excited to get to "wield the scalpel and excise a cyst!" He said he really enjoyed doing that!! LOL

After living for many years in Kansas City, I had to move back to Brookfield. Finding a doctor closer than the two-hour drive to KC was out of the question! I didn't care how many miles it was or how many hours driving it took, no doctor could replace Dr. Dwight Cashier. (I am very blessed that I was paired with an amazing doctor at the same location after Dr. Cashier left.)

My deepest condolences to Dr. Cashier's family, patients, and friends. I recently lost my sister who was just 46 years old. The loss of a loved one gone too soon is by far one of the most horrific things for someone to go through. I will carry over 30 years worth of wonderful memories of my amazing doctor, confidante, wise counsel and friend, Dr. Dwight Allen Cashier.

Goodbye, my dear friend.\

Love this guy! Best doctor and friend ever. He was our doctor starting in 1992. Followed him from Parkville to St. Lukes. Always funny and he listened to you. He will be missed. So sorry for your loss.

My husband, brother and I were all patients of Dr. Cashier for years at Parkville and St. Luke's North. He was the best doctor and the sweetest man -- always acted like he had all the time in the world to visit with his patients. He once told me that he came face to face with Paul McCartney in an elevator in KC during a concert tour, and I was touched by how excited he was by the encounter as I, too, am a big fan of Sir Paul. He always spoke so fondly of his family and I want to express my sincere sympathy for their loss.
