RIP Cass.

Thanks for you help and all that you have done.

Your dedication to your wife shows what a great man you were.

You will be missed.

A Giant has passed.

It's not lost on me that men like Cass walked alone down desolate and dusty roads many times in bad, bad lands so that others did not have to. RIP.

RIP. Cass was one of primary foundations of this site, and always had words of wisdom and encouragement. He laid the foundation in his service, that many of us could only aspire to emulate.

One thing missing in his obituary above,that I always found fascinating, is his time in China as a "China Sailor" post WWII in the late 1940s.

He is very much missed. God Speed.

RIP Cass.

Never could get you to write that book, but that just wouldn't be your style anyway - a quiet professional.
God speed.

Our world just became a little more barren and bleak--Cass was truly a gentle man with a huge heart. God Bless him, his wife and family.

Calm waters my friend...
