CASSELL, John A., known by everybody as “JACK” was born
in Great Bend, KS on September 12, 1943 to Donald and Jane (Bandy)
Cassell. He graduated from Great Bend High School in 1961, and
from Wichita State University with a Business degree in 1967.
He married Joyce Stahl in 1967 and they made their home in Wichita.
He worked for Cessna Aircraft before and after his tour of active
duty with the Army National Guard. After leaving Cessna he worked
in accounting positions before settling into insurance sales at the
encouragement of a friend. He never regretted that decision and
later owned insurance agencies in Wichita and Emporia. He sold his
agencies in 2011 and went into semi-retirement, maintaining contact
with his loyal customers through Signature Select & IMA Insurance.
He went into full retirement in 2019. He loved landscaping and left
a wonderful legacy in his yard for his family and friends to enjoy.
Jack always had a welcoming smile and encouragement for those
around him. Jack had a strong relationship with the Lord and was
actively involved in volunteer ministry with his church family at
Central Community Church. He passed into the arms of His Heavenly
Father on April 18, 2020. He will be missed by his family and friends!
He is survived by his wife of almost 53 years, Joyce; daughter Heather
(Randall) Wood; son Matthew (Bettina) Cassell; brother Mark (Rosie)
Cassell; grandsons Carson Cassell, Zachary Wood and Colton Cassell.
A memorial service will be held at a later date. Memorials have been
