We were saddened to hear the news of Mr. Casseday’s passing. Although we met him only once, we could quickly tell he was a lovely man. Also we heard such wonderful stories from InJung. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the whole family, especially his wife. May he Rest In Peace

Roger Casseday thought I was a pretty smart guy. That alone made him a really good friend of mine. He was a member of the Pentony/Casseday clan and that meant that you had to have a sense of humor and be relatively bright. He and I used to, as cousins, jerk each other around and I always felt it was likely he was always one step ahead of me. We chatted over the phone for 10 or 15 years and I am sure I always got more out of the conversation than he did. I will think of him as I go along. I hate it when a good man goes down.

My sincerest condolences to his family. Not only was he an excellent teacher (I was a high school student at Newbury in the early 70's), he was a kind man with a sparkle in his eye and a keen sense of humor. His students were blessed to have him as an example of the kind of person one should aspire to be.

Our deepest condolences to Roger's family. We will never forget him and the impression he made in our young lives as his students! Who would have thought that government class could be so much fun! Even though we haven't seen him in years, we often talked about our high school years and how memorable they were, and a lot of it had to do with Roger!!

I am saddened over the passing of Mr. Casseday. Mrs Casseday will be in my prayers for strength in the coming days. The Cassedays were not only teachers in their chosen fields, they were shining examples to generations of chilldren. He was my benchmark of family and a life well spent. I write this with love and respect and the hope that Mrs. Casseday will forgive me for all grammer and punctuation errors.

My deepest condolences to Mr Casseday and family. I enjoyed having Mr Casseday as a teacher and gym coach at Newbury High School in the 1980's. My family and I also enjoyed having him and his wife as neighbors. He was a sweet man and left a mark in my heart.

I was so grateful to know "Ace" beyond the classroom and not only call him a mentor and friend, but a godly example of a fine man. I loved his sense of humor and the way he dealt with people. No matter who you are, he always treated you with respect. God bless you Mr. C., and may you rest in peace. I thank God for the blessing of you. Until we meet again!
