Robert Cassel Death, Obituary – Brandon Robert Cassel, affectionately known as “Goofy” and “Deuce,” left this world on August 7, 2023, finding peace in the embrace of his Perry, FL home. Born on February 25, 1984, in Charleston, South Carolina, Brandon’s life was a tapestry woven with love, service, and unwavering camaraderie. A dedicated patriot, Brandon’s commitment to his country was exemplified by his honorable service in the United States Army. For three years, he courageously stood as a veteran of Iraqi Freedom, displaying the heart of a true soldier.
His valor and determination were matched only by his signature “Goofiness,” which served as a beacon of light for his fellow comrades during trying times. Known for having his companions’ backs, Brandon was not only a great soldier but a true and loyal friend.

Nature’s beauty was a canvas on which he found solace, often enjoying the great outdoors with cherished friends and family. His benevolent nature knew no bounds as he readily extended a hand to those in need, showcasing his compassionate spirit.
Brandon’s memory is graced by the love of his parents, Ricky and Pamela Cassel, and his grandparents, Paul and Violet Cassel. His brothers, Shawn Pauley and Joshua Cassel, alongside their respective spouses Grace and Katie, held a special place in his heart. Niece Sydney Pauley and nephews Wesley and Tyler Cassel were touched by his warm presence. His loyal canine companion, Angel, shared in his journey.
As we reflect on the chapters of Brandon’s life, we are reminded of his laughter, his loyalty, and his unwavering kindness. Though he is now reunited with his grandparents Robert and Addie Pollard, his legacy continues to live on in the memories he crafted with each life he touched.
