John Charles Cassidy. (July 02, 1966 – June 23, 2021)

With extremely heavy hearts, we announce the sudden, tragic passing of Chief John Cassidy, of the Colwood Volunteer Fire Department. This year marks John’s 30 years in the fire service and his accomplishments are far too many to list. John revered his job, his co-workers and his community. He was honored to work alongside the career and volunteer firefighters. He was appreciative of the outstanding office personnel and greatly valued his relationship with all the Chiefs of The Westshore Departments. John was well respected and highly regarded. He was selfless, kind, caring, witty, knowledgeable, empathetic, proficient and exceptionally dedicated to his chosen profession. John will be lovingly remembered and eternally missed by his wife of 32 years, Monique, his daughter, Lauren (Kieran) and his son, Ryan. Ultimately, John’s greatest pride and joy was his family and he was always the happiest, at home, with them. John is also survived by his father, Liam Cassidy and sister, Claire Meert.

In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to: The Colwood Volunteer Firefighters Association Darryl Corrigall Memorial Scholarship.
