Everett Adelbert Cassity, 86, of Baraboo passed away at his home April 14, 2022. He was born February 13, 1936, in the Town of Winfield, Sauk County to Everett C. and Vivian E. (Ison) Cassity. He grew up on a farm as the oldest of 10 children and after graduating from Reedsburg High School moved to Kenosha, WI to work at American Brass. He later began an apprenticeship as a carpenter that led to his lifelong career in the construction industry.
He first married Merry Jo Harper on July 2, 1955, and was blessed with two children, Billee Jo and Jim. On March 9, 1963, he married Nancy M. Walden and was blessed with three children Patrick, Annette, and Nathan. In 1969 Everett and Nancy moved to Baraboo where he founded his own successful construction company, E.A. Cassity Concrete Construction and later Nancy and he owned and operated Badger Cleaners. Everett’s hobbies included gardening, raising livestock, woodworking, wine making, and aquaponics. He was a pilot and built two airplanes of his own which Nancy and he enjoyed taking to fly-ins. Everett was a member of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Baraboo, WI where he served as an elder for several years.
Everett believed the words of John 14: 2-3 when Jesus said, “In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.” Everett now rejoices in the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus.
