Stevie Martin Cassell - age 56 of Knoxville, passed away on August 1, 2020 at UT Medical Center surrounded by his wife and children after a long battle with Vascular Dementia. Steve was born on Dec. 29, 1963 to Fred and Rose (Williams) Cassell. Sadly, Steve lost his mother before his first birthday. God blessed him with another loving mother when his father married Betty. She raised Steve as her own and he loved her dearly. Steve was known for his awesome sense of humor and quick wit, if you spent any time with him you went away happy. He was a self-employed flooring contractor for most of his life. He was gifted and was able to provide custom work to his customers. Steve was also an ordained minister in The Church of God of the Gospel Assembly. He loved the Lord. He was always ready to share with others about his Lord and Savior and how he could change your life and make all things new. Steve dearly loved his wife of 36 years, Lisa. She along with their 3 daughters cared for him at home through his illness. He loved and cherished his grandchildren with all of his heart.

Steve is preceded in death by his mother, Rose; father, Fred; and brothers, Jeff, George, Jesse, and Jerry. Steve is survived by his wife, Lisa; daughters, Casey (fiancé Richard Pitera), Sarah (Brandon) Pickett, and Madison; grandchildren, Zoey and Julian Pickett, Garrett Davidson, and Haydin Pitera; mother, Betty Cassell; brothers, Fred Jr, (Rhonda), Hugh (Debbie)Teems; sisters, Retha (Steve) Brafford, Flo Burke (the late Bill Burke), and Elva (Ray) Medley; and a multitude of nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank our extended church family, Sabrina Nelson, and Bob and Lee Redman. Your love and support enabled us to care for Steve during his illness.

I have never NOT known Steve! He and his family have been a part of my life since I can remember! Even after a few years of separation, there really was no getting reaquanted; he was the same Steve, just older! I can't imagine any other person that complimented Steve's personality like Lisa. You two were meant for each other, Lisa, y'all were truly soulmates!
One of many memories sticks in my head and makes me laugh to this day. Steve was laying carpet at our house, up and down, huffing and puffing, just trying to get the job done. I walked by the bedroom where he was sitting in the floor with that big, ole Steve smile of his, and he started singing the old song, "I'm in the Way". But, his version was "I'm in the way, right smack dab in the way". I laughed so hard, I was crying!
That was the Steve we all knew and loved! He never failed to make you smile or laugh hysterically!
I loved hearing him preach and sing. He, Lisa and Ron would sing the song he wrote,
"If He Can Die For Me, I Will Live For Him" and the congregation would all join in! It was so beautiful and such a blessing! I can't count the times I have sang that song in my head these last few days!
Lisa, Casey, Sarah, and Maddy; Paul and I are praying that God comforts you and brings you peace of mind through this terribly difficult time! Steve touched so many lives and our hearts are broken but there is a great hope that Steve will make us laugh again 💞

I never will forget the time we all were at Ron and Nancy's setting around the table, I went to set down and the chair broke, down I went and Steve Never let me live it down...and of course Ron has either. Steve would always put his hand up under his eyes and I knew right away what he meant. We have had some great time just like everyone else and times we will NEVER forget. I Love You Guys and I am only a phone call away if there is Ever Anything I can do for you. Love You All, Kathy
