Joseph Madison Casady © Cheyenne Star, Cheyenne, OK 22 Jun 1928 Submitted by: Wanda Purcell
In the death of Joseph M. Casady, which occurred at 8:30 o'clock Tuesday morning at his home, this city loses one of its best known and well liked citizens.
Mr. Casady came to this city in 1908, at that time engaging in business. He has lived here continuously since with the exception of about two years which were spent at Baker, Montana.
After his return to Lemmon, he became proprietor of the Pool Hall which he has continued to operate until the time of his death.
The deceased was a man of jovial disposition, always with a greeting for all, and his friends can truly be numbered by his acquaintances.
About ten days ago, Mr. Casady was taken ill with the "flu". He remained indoors a few days, then thinking himself able and feeling the need of his presence at his place of business, walked to the Pool Hall on Monday, a week ago. He suffered a relapse and rapidly contracted the dread influenza-pneumonia which in spite of all that trained nurses and loving hands could do, proved fatal.
Joseph Madison Casady was born in Hubbard City, Texas, April 14, 1870, where his early youth was spent.
At the age of twenty-one he moved to Oklahoma Territory where he lived until 1905, when he moved to Evarats, South Dakota.
He was married to Laura Arnold on July 21, 1906, and to this union five children were born, all of whom are living.
In 1908 he moved to Lemmon, South Dakota where he has since resided.
Joe was a true pioneer of the West having helped to blaze the trail in Oklahoma Territory and became acquainted with open life of the plains and spent his early life on the great cattle ranges of the southwest living close to nature.
He was a great lover of his home and all of his leisure time was spent there with his family. Home was to him the dearest place on earth.
No man has ever lived in Lemmons who has been blessed with many true friends as Joe. He practiced the Golden Rule toward all men, and his passing leaves a vacancy that can never be filed.
He leaves to mourn his departure a wife, five children and two grandchildren, all of Lemmon; a father, mother, one sister and three brothers of Cheyenne, Oklahoma; and a brother, Otto, residing in Cody, Wyoming.
Funeral services will be held Friday morning at 10:00 a.m. from the Baptist Church with Rev. Hoover in charge. Rev. E. E. Shult will assist.
Pall bearers will be Otto Rodenbo, Paul Lippman, J. C. Stoner, O. Short, Dr. E. J. McAllister and Joe Fields.
Burial will be made in the Greenhill cemetery, Lemmon, South Dakota.
