Alan Francis Cassidy, 76, passed away on June 19, 2019 in Orem, Utah. He was born into show business December 12, 1942 in Danbury, Connecticut to Frank and Virginia Cassidy (dad in vaudeville, mom on radio for 50 years). At 15 he apprenticed in summer stock. In college he disc jockeyed on 2 local radio stations. After graduating from Brigham Young University he helped produce the Academy Award-winning rodeo feature documentary, The Great American Cowboy. In Hollywood, he produced and worked on over 30 TV series including The Incredible Hulk, The A-Team, Hunter, Wiseguy, The Commish, and Magnum, P.I. He was a member of the Writers Guild of America, Producers Guild of America, and Screen Actors Guild.

Alan lived to make people laugh and cheerlead those who needed a little sunshine. He recognized that humor was a sacred – and often overlooked – virtue. Life was a stage and Alan often found the spotlight. His younger brother once asked, “Is your whole life a skit?” He believed that life without fun is not much of a life.

Alan cherished his children, grandchildren and good friends. He found refuge in good books, movies, and music. Alan served four years in the U.S. Navy, and served a higher authority in many church positions.

Alan is survived by his wife, Renita, of Orem; children (with former wife Ann Yeates Cassidy): Bridget (Daniel), grandchildren Gabriel, Alex and Jason; Chelsea (Travis) Green, grandchildren Boston, Cassidy, Beckett and Callen, all of Layton, Utah; Patrick (Emily), grandchildren Ethan and Spencer, of St. George, Utah; brothers John (Val), niece Rebecca of Airmont, N.Y., and Mark of Ogden, Utah.

A celebration of his life will be held Friday, June 28, at 11:00 a.m., at the Suncrest 2nd Ward, 140 North 400 West, Orem, Utah, where a viewing will be held prior to services from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Interment in the Utah Veterans Cemetery & Memorial Park, 17111 South Camp Williams Road, Bluffdale, Utah.
