RENO, Nev. (AP) - Funeral services are scheduled Thursday for Bob Cashell, a three-term Reno mayor and former Nevada lieutenant governor who died Tuesday.

Cashell’s funeral Thursday at 1:30 p.m. at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church will be followed by a Celebration of Life public reception at the downtown Reno Ballroom, with doors opening at 3:30 p.m.

Cashell was mayor from 2002 to 2014. He served on the state Board of Regents and switched party affiliations from Democrat to Republican after becoming lieutenant governor in 1983.

Cashell pressed for a rail trench that eliminated 11 city railroad crossings when it opened in 2006 at a cost of $282 million. He also supported construction of the Reno Aces baseball stadium, a new City Hall and other projects.
