Obituary of Frank Cassidy

Francis (Frank) George Cassidy

October 8, 1942 – December 15, 2021

On December 15, 2021, Frank (retired Alpha milkman of 48 years) passed away peacefully at the Red Deer Hospital.

Frank leaves behind his loving and devoted wife of 61 years, Carline Cassidy; children: Mike (Carmen) Cassidy and their children Colton (Stephanie) and great granddaughter Aubrie, Logan, Chelsea, daughter Jacki Cassidy, son Mark (Shauna) Cassidy and their children Shay (Lauren) and great grandson Grayson, Kayde (Kendel), son Clayton (Arlene) Cassidy and their children Brooke and Rylee.  Frank also leaves to mourn, brothers Al and Bill; sisters in law: Aleta, Gwen, Gayle, Alvina Johnson and Eleanor Dahlgren; numerous nieces, nephews, other family and many dear friends.  Frank was predeceased by his parents Tom and Viv; brothers: Leonard “Buzz,” Charles “Spitz,” John, Terrence “Ned,” and Lyle; sister Joyce Mailer; sisters in law Nancy and Stella; father and mother-in-law Carl and Isabel Barrett; nieces Terra and Kristin Mailer.

Frank’s love of sports was at the forefront of everything he did.  He was a die-hard Flames, Stampeders and Blue Jays fan.  In his younger years he played senior hockey for the Imperials and Trojans, he also loved to pitch fastball and played slow-pitch with his kids.  His love for golf started late in life but was a true passion where he enjoyed playing a round with his boys and grandkids.  He spent countless hours at the arena and on the ball diamond coaching his kids in hockey and ball for many years.  He also loved watching his grandkids in the many sports they played.

Outside of working for Alpha Milk he also had many other work interests; painting, landlord, key cutting, skate sharpening and liked to work on the side helping his brother Lyle in construction.  He also took great pride in keeping his house, yard and vehicle in immaculate condition.

Frank’s quick wit, sarcasm and sense of humour will be greatly missed by all.
