John Thomas Cass, 74, a longtime Pontiac school teacher, died April 14, 2010 after a lengthy battle with leukemia. He is survived by his wife Valarie, and his children, Timothy (Veronica), Carolyn (Rafael) Lorente, Susan Cass Millichamp, Jill Stout, Scott (Robin) Stout, and his seven grandchildren. John was an English teacher at Pontiac Northern High School and a Language Arts Coordinator for over 30 years. He was a devoted member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, singing in the Adult and Gregorian Chant Choirs. He served as the president of Oxford/Orion FISH, an organization that provides food to families in need. He loved camping, fishing, golfing and playing with his grandchildren.

John had an infectious laugh that everyone enjoyed and his joyful spirit will live on. The family would like to thank the intensive care nurses and especially the staff of 4G at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital for their compassionate care. A Funeral Mass will take place Saturday April 17, 2010 at 1:30 PM at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Lake Orion, with visitation at the church at 12:30 PM.
