Long-time Kingston, NY resident Christopher A. Cahill Sr. passed away after a short illness in his Port Charlotte, FL home on July 23rd, 2020 with his family by his side.
Chris was born on June 8th, 1951 in the Bronx, NY to Maryalice Cahill and the late Michael Cahill. He moved to Kingston with his family in 1955, where he grew up alongside several brothers, sisters, cousins, and friends. He joined the Kingston Fire Department in 1975 where he proudly served as a lieutenant, an EMT, and as the president of the Kingston Professional Firefighters Association, IAFF Local 461. After twenty years of service, he retired from the Fire Department and pursued a second, sixteen-year-long career in property management before retiring to Florida with his wife in 2012. Chris was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, and son who loved to garden, golf, visit the beach, pursue home improvement projects, paint houses, and spend quality time with his family and friends. Chris was active for the entirety of his life and was loved by all who knew him for his kindness, humility, his generosity of spirit, and his courage, all of which he bravely exhibited until the very end.
