Dale Alan Cassel, Jr., 41, of Shady Spring, West Virginia, and formerly of Hudson died Thursday, July 9, 2020, while on a job site in Kentucky.

He was born October 4, 1978, in Goshen to Dale Cassel, Sr. and Linda (Hall) Cassel.

He was a graduate of Prairie Heights High School.

On June 29, 2015, in Fort Collins, Colorado, he married Jessica L. Gravit.

Mr. Cassel moved to West Virginia two years ago, coming from Colorado. He worked as a wireline operator for many years and just recently started working as an environmental equipment operator.

Dale loved anything to do with Christmas. He would bake Christmas cookies every year with his daughters. He loved collecting transformers. He enjoyed playing outside with his dog, Indie and his four-year-old daughter, Willow. You never saw him without his Chicago Bears or Cubs gear on. He loved to pick on his daughters and joke around with them. Dale always thought he was the funniest person in the room.

Surviving are his wife, Jessica Cassel of Shady Spring, West Virginia; three daughters, Willow A. Cassel, Olivia M. Bowers, and Chloe J. Bowers all of Shady Spring, West Virginia; his mother and stepfather, Linda & Pete Hatkow of Spring Hill, Florida; his father and stepmother, Dale Cassel Sr. and Marina Cassel of Burr Oak, Michigan; a sister and brother-in-law, Julie and Sam Plew of LaGrange; and a nephew, Seth Plew of LaGrange.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Norman and Doris Cassel and Estill and Anna Mae Hall.

A gathering of family and friends will be Saturday, July 25, 2020, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Young Family Funeral Home, Hudson-Ashley Chapel, 612 North Main Street, Hudson with Pastor Craig Burkholder of the Hudson United Brethren Church officiating at a memorial service at 5 p.m.

I will never forget his little smiling face and I can't believe he is really gone, but the Lord needs flowers too.

Birgit and I saddened to hear of "littleDales" passing. I guess he will always be known that to us. Seems that he had a nice family that will surely miss his smiles and good deeds. Prayers with his family and his parents. Roger and Birgit
