John’s life reflected his wide range of talents from teaching high school to farming. He began his career as a builder and residential contractor. He loved his work and later taught building construction in high school earning “Teacher of the Year” at Richland Northeast High School and eventually retiring from Swansea High School. John was an avid sports fan and coached little league baseball for many years before coaching on the high school level. He also officiated high school basketball and served on the Lexington County Recreation Commission. He was committed to working with youth teaching Sunday School and serving as a mentor for first time youthful offenders. His steadfast faith and firm moral compass led him to be a highly engaged citizen who championed and stood up for equality, decency and justice for everyone. After retiring from teaching, John built and operated the Cassidy Poultry Farm spending many hours hunting, fishing and gardening with his grandchildren. He was devout in his faith, devoted to his family and treasured fellowship with friends. His bright and keen intellect, caring manner and wonderful smile will be missed by the many who knew and loved him. The family would like to thank everyone from Pruitt Health Hospice, especially Megan and Linda, for the kind support given to them over the past two years.
