Mr. Cassetty, age 80, passed away Jan. 1, 2014.
Frank was born in Jackson County on Dec. 26, 1933. His parents were Braxton and Bessie Cassetty, who preceded him in death. He is survived by his adoring wife of nearly 37 years, Colleen; his darling daughters, Karen Cassetty, Christl (David) Ray, Katie (Chris) Graves; the joys of his life, his grandchildren, David (Maria) Fulcher, Rachel James, Aidan and Zoe Graves, Summer Ray; and great-granddaughter, Elsie Grace Fulcher. Also surviving are his sister, Robbie (Harold) Chapman; sister-in-law, Jean Curtiss; David Stafford, who was like a brother to Frank; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Some of Frank’s happiest times were spent flying as a captain for TWA for more than 24 years, and his days at the farm. Frank was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, friend and a true gentleman. The family will miss him and love him always. The family wishes to thank, especially, all the caregivers at The Gardens in Mt. Juliet for their loving and compassionate care over the last 2½ years. You made our journey easier.
Pallbearers will be Tim Stafford, Mike Stafford, Kelly Cassetty, Caleb Stafford, Josh Watson and Tom James.
