It is with deep sadness that we share the sudden passing of our beloved husband, Dad and Grandpa, John Victor Cassidy on December 23, 2009. John touched many lives in his home town of Stettler with years of coaching minor hockey, girl’s fastball and men’s slo-pitch. Sometimes a little unorthodox, but always with deep passion. As a fan of the game, he was as loyal to his beloved Oilers and Eskimos as they come. John will live on in the memory of his wife of 47 years, Nancy; his children: Danny Cassidy & Cathy Cassidy, Cheryl & Brian, Tracey Cassidy & Bill Ketchin; most of all his seven granddaughters who he loved so very much: Tayler, Britt, Paige, Morgan, Allison, Cassidy and Grace. John is also survived by his brothers: Al (Stella), Buzz (Gwen), Spitz (Aleta), Ned, Frank (Carline), Bill and Lyle (Gayle); along with numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
As John leaves us, he joins those who are already home, his parents Thomas & Genevieve Cassidy, his sister Joyce Mailer, nieces Terra and Kristen Mailer.
A Memorial Service was held at the Heartland Fellowship Hall on December 30, 2009 with son in law Brian Mayer giving a tribute to those in attendance. Linda Hall Ladies served the luncheon. Memorial donations may be made in memory of John to STARS or Stettler Health Services Foundation or a charity of your own choice, c/o Box 1780, Stettler, AB T0C 2L0.
Condolences may be sent to the family by signing the guestbook at www.stettlerfuneralchapel.com and they will be forwarded to the family.
