lewis ned cahill

 

            Lewis Ned Cahill, 84, of Blairsville died peacefully at home August 11, 2013, surrounded by his family.  Ned was born on May 5, 1929 in Glens Falls, NY, the elder son of the late Jerry and Ethel Cahill.  After graduating from Colgate University, he attended Albany Medical College, receiving the MD degree in 1955.

            He served for nine years as a physician in the US Navy, at Naval hospitals in Chelsea, MA; Camp Lejeune, NC; and Bethesda, MD.  In 1961, while he was stationed at Camp Lejeune, he was transferred to the Bethesda Naval Hospital to serve as physician for the families of the newly elected President John F. Kennedy and Vice-President Lyndon Johnson at Camp David.  He retired from the Navy in 1964 as a Lieutenant Commander, and began a 36-year private practice in internal medicine in Bethesda, MD.

            In 2000, Ned and his wife, Ann, retired from MD to Blairsville, GA to join family and enjoy mountain living.  He came out of retirement for a time, working in the office of Mary Beth Wiles, M.D., but decided retirement was too much fun to pass up.  An avid bridge player since college, he played regularly with the Appalachian Bridge Club until illness forced him to give it up.  He enjoyed classical music, was an active member and former vestryman at St. Clare’s Episcopal Church, and was a frequent student in a variety of ICL courses at Young Harris College. Most of all he enjoyed reading.  It was often said that he never met a book he didn’t like.

            Ned is survived by his devoted wife of 43 years, Ann, two sons and three step children: Ned, Jr. and his wife Beverly, of North Potomac, MD; Michael H. Cahill and his partner Chris Leptak, of Washington, DC; Lea Gaslowitz and her husband Adam, of Atlanta; Sue Bolander and her husband Tom, of West River, MD; and David Marsh and his wife Melissa, of Purcellville, VA.  He had nine grandchildren: Aryn and Zach Gaslowitz; Christine, Abbey, and Matthew Bolander; Sam Cahill; and Lexi, Jackson, and Indra Marsh.  He also leaves nieces and nephews, a sister-in-law, Deborah Burford, of Blairsville, and many loved friends.  His only brother, Donald F. Cahill, predeceased him.

            An August 17th memorial service at St. Clare’s Episcopal Church was followed by interment of ashes in  St. Clare’s Memorial Garden, Rev. Frank F. Wilson officiating.  Music was provided by organist and choirmaster Vince Evans.  

            In lieu of flowers, the family suggests a memorial donation to Doctors Without Borders, Regency Hospice, or St. Clare’s.

            Mountain View Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.  You may sign the family guest book and send condolences on line at www. mountainviewfuneralhome.com.
