Cassard, William


It is with great sadness and much love that we announce the passing of William L. Cassard, III, 72, of Dunwoody, Georgia, on February 26, 2023, at home.

In 1990, Bill reconnected with Elaine Earley at a high school reunion and they were happily married for 33 years. His interests were many - high school football, all things Georgia Tech, cars, boats, home improvement shows, reading, and traveling. Unfailingly generous, easily entertained, kind, patient, great conversationalist, strong, and with a wonderful sense of humor, his love of and contentment with his life were only surpassed by his love for family and friends.
