March 29, 1954 ~ July 17, 2021 (age 67)


Dan J. Kassel, 67, of Grand Meadow, MN died on Saturday, July 17, 2021 at his home.

Daniel Jaye Kassel was born March 29, 1954 to John “Jack” and Norma (Stripling) Kassel. He was a dedicated member of the United Methodist Church of Grand Meadow. Dan began his career as a mechanic at Crenlo then put in over 20 years for Amoco. Dan loved his daily routine of going to the motor mart for coffee,  heading to The Diner for lunch, getting another round of coffee, then heading home for a nap and to watch his TV programs, especially MacGyver and Wheel of Fortune.  He was an avid reader, liked to play cribbage, and enjoyed mowing his lawn. Dan loved his nieces and nephews. He never missed a birthday card and was always at least 15 minutes early to every birthday party and holiday. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

Dan is survived by his siblings John Kassel of Austin, MN, Pamela (Marshall) Goodfellow of Centerville, OH, Jeremy (Barb) Kassel of Stewartville, MN, nieces and nephews John (Marla), Jeremy Michael, and Caleb all of Grand Meadow, Diana of Bloomington, Cesca and Xavier of Stewartville, great-nephews Justin of Stewartville and Ethan of Grand Meadow.  

He was preceded in death by his parents, sister Deborah, and great-nephew Stephen Kassel.
