Capt. Christopher Scott Cash Sr., died June 24, 2004, in heavy fighting in Iraq while serving in the N.C. National Guard. He was one of three U.S. soldiers who died in Baqubah, a town 35 miles northeast of Baghdad.

A 1985 Old Orchard Beach High School graduate, he was remembered for his athletic excellence and dedication to the military. Cash moved to Old Orchard Beach from Rhode Island when he was 8 years old and grew up in the two-story red house on Cascade Road where his mother Nancy, and stepfather Bob, still live.

At his burial in Pinewood Memorial Park, Cash was posthumously awarded a Bronze Star for meritorious service, a Purple Heart for being injured in battle and a combat infantryman badge for his time spent fighting.

A memorial Service was held at St. Maximilian Kolbe Church on July 24th with the Rev. Dr. David Calhoun presiding. A number of presentations were made on behalf of Veterans, State and Federal representatives.  Friends and family shared memories of Chris which included humorous anecdotes and poignant poems.
