Elvin Ray Cassity Obituary

Elvin Ray Cassity, 79, went to be with the Lord on February 3, 2024, while surrounded by his family. He was born on March 16, 1944, the son of Everett and Virginia McIntyre Cassity.  He was a lifelong resident of New Winchester, Indiana, and a member of the New Winchester Christian Church since birth.  He graduated from New Winchester High School as part of the Class of 1962. While working at the Danville Dog n Suds, he met Kathleen “Kathy” Davisson.  They were married on December 22, 1965, at Mary, Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Danville, Indiana.

He retired in 2009. He was the Marion Township Trustee/Assessor for over 38 years. 

Elvin Ray was a man of faith, family, friends, food, flowers, and fun. He took great pride in being a Christian, going to church, and enjoyed listening to Southern Gospel music. He deeply cared for his family and friends. He was a great dad and grandpa. He always tried to lead by example, help others as often as he could, and knew the value of hard work.  He lived to cook for everyone, and everyone enjoyed what he cooked. He loved working with his flowers in his yard. He had a great sense of humor and an amazing laugh. He enjoyed family trips, going out to eat, gatherings with others, card games, and just being with his wife, kids, grandkids, great-grandkids, siblings, and friends.
