Joseph John Cassetto, 95 of Allegan, passed Wednesday, June 13, 2018, at Allegan General Hospital.

Mr. Cassetto was born Oct. 4, 1922, in Wilsonville, Ill., the son of the late Domenic and Lena (Residori) Cassetto. He spent the majority of his life in Plainfield, Ill. prior to retiring to Michigan.

Mr. Cassetto was a veteran of World War II and he served honorably overseas in the Air Force as an Air Transportation Technician.  After the war, Mr. Cassetto attended barber school and opened Joe’s Barber Shop, which he ran for over 40 years. 

On Nov. 22, 1947, Joe married his true love Helen Severson and together they raised a family of four children, three boys and a girl.  They were blessed with 61 years together. Joe was a kind-hearted and gentle man with a genuine smile. His love of family and friends was always evident.
