Dr John Milton Cassidy, 82, of Morgantown, Pennsylvania passed and promptly made his last appointment to meet his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on August 23, 2021.
John was born in Birmingham, Michigan on July 12, 1939. He graduated from Bob Jones University and received his PHD from Florida State University. He was a talented Christian business man who used his gifts for the glory of God across many fields and ventures; a career which spanned from his youth till his death. He also spent many of his years in work that reflected his commitment to Christian education.
John’s life was characterized by a great love for God and His Word. He was a faithful husband to his wife and best friend, Evie, for 60 years. John dearly cared and prayed fervently for his children and grandchildren. He loved and served the people of High Point Baptist Chapel as a deacon and member for many years. To the end of his life John strived to have purpose and meaning that contributed to God’s kingdom. Most importantly, his eternal hope was in his Savior, Jesus Christ; and that hope has been gloriously realized!
“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?... in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:35a, 37-39
John is preceded in death by his parents; Robert and Elizabeth Cassidy; his brother, David Cassidy (infant death); and his sister, Marianne Pond. He is survived by his wife Evelyn Cassidy, his sister Susan (Mel) Wilhoit, children Steve Cassidy, Tedd (Meredith) Cassidy, Christy (Mike) Runey, Wendy (Cameron) Luttmann. John has 7 grandchildren: Vitya Cassidy, Daniel and Jack Cassidy, Sarah, Rebekah, Peter, and Caleb Runey.
