Kenneth L. Cassaubon, 79

Kenneth L. Cassaubon, 79, of Montpelier, Ohio, passed away peacefully in the early morning hours on Friday, May 5, 2023, in his residence with his family by his side.  Ken was born August 11, 1943, in Wayne, Michigan, the son of the late Nathan and Doris J. (Belleville) Cassaubon.  He was a 1961 graduate of Eastwood High School and continued his education at Owens Technical College.  Ken served in the United States Air Force from March 1962 until his honorable discharge in February 1966, obtaining the rank of Sergeant.  He married Betty L. Degryse on September 12, 1987, in Bryan, Ohio, and she survives.  Ken was the owner and operator of C & K Machine Company in Fayette, Ohio, and at Powder Coating Plus in Archbold, Ohio.  Ken was a member of the Family Christian Center – Defiance, Bryan Eagles Aerie 2233, Bryan American Legion Post 284, and the Montpelier Moose Lodge 312.  A country boy at heart, Ken’s favorite song “Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Every Day” by Luke Bryan, is a fitting reflection of who he was and his appreciation for life itself.

Cassaubon of Montpelier; three sons, Kevin (Angie) Cassaubon of Grayling, Michigan, Kent (Teresa) Cassaubon of Newberry, Iowa, and Kip (Christina) Cassaubon of Perrysburg, Ohio; two step-sons, Denny (Kellie) Devers of Archbold, Ohio, and Johnny (Mary) Devers of Montpelier; nine grandchildren; six step-grandchildren; two great-grandsons; and a sister, Patricia Lobdell of Mineola, Texas.  Ken was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, Nathan Cassaubon, Jr., and Norman Cassaubon; and a sister, Doreen.
