John Vernon Cassell, the son of Vernon and Lavonne (Kalpin) Cassell, was born on January 4, 1955 in Alexandria, MN. He graduated from Jefferson High School in 1973 and then attended Alexandria Technical School for painting. He perfected his skills and began sign lettering on billboards and auto mobiles. John also was an over the road truck driver. He traveled throughout the United States delivering all sorts of different products. John's favorite state was Montana and he always dreamed of living there someday.

John's initials "JVC" in his mind meant "Just Very Cool". John had a good sense of humor and a laid back type of personality. He loved to go fishing, deer hunting, and working on little projects like fixing boats, motorcycles, or making a fish house. John also loved a good garage sale. He was always looking for a good find or antique.

John had two daughters, Jamie and Emily. He loved both of them and his grandchildren. John was a kind man and loved spending time with his family and friends. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
