Garrett “Gary” M. Cassidy, 48, of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and formerly of Sycamore, died Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013, at home, surrounded by his loving family.

He was born Dec. 17,1964, in Tiffin, to Norman G. and Juanita C. (Peck) Cassidy, who survive in rural Sycamore. He married Jennie (Weininger) Cassidy Aug. 21, 1988, and she survives in Myrtle Beach.

Gary was a police officer for the Coastal Carolina Police Department in Conway, South Carolina. He was a 1983 graduate of Mohawk High School, attended Bowling Green State University and the University of Toledo. He was also a member of Sycamore United Church of Christ. His passion, however, was his family. Whether helping coach his children’s sporting events or enjoying quiet moments at home, he cherished his family.
