James F. "Buck" Cass, Janesville, WI (1945 - 2014)
January 24, 1945 - July 19, 2014
James F. “Buck” Cass, age 69, of Janesville, passed away at home on Saturday, July 19, 2014, after his battle with cancer. He was born Jan. 24, 1945, in Madison, WI, the son of James and Julia (Gotzion) Cass. Shortly after graduating from St. Vincent De Paul High School in Mt. Vernon, OH, Jim moved to Cleveland, OH, where he met, fell in love with, and married Lynn Bossinas, the love of his life for 49 years. Being a construction electrician took him out of town and away from his family for too long, so he gave it up to be near home with his family. Being a car enthusiast, Jim, then, became an auto salesman until he combined the two and hired in as an electrician at Ford Motor Co. in Parma, OH. After 7 years there, he made one of the best decisions for his family and moved them to Janesville, where he continued working as an electrician for General Motors until his retirement in 2006. Buck looked forward to hunting and fishing season with his son and friends at the cabin. He also enjoyed riding his motorcycle and his weekly visits to see his daughter, Carol.
Buck is survived by his wife, Lynn; two children, Chris Cass and Carol Cass, both of Janesville; his daughter-in-law, Jill; grandchildren: Shelby, Jenna, and Jarred; brother, Pat (Joyce) Cass of Louisville, KY; and brother-in-law, Jim Tansor of Washington, D.C.; many other sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, and sister, Connie Tansor.
