Francis X. Cassidy Jr.
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Francis (Frank) Xavier Cassidy Jr. on Wednesday, January 26, 2022. Frank was born in Huntingdon Valley, PA in 1958, and spent most of his life residing in Springfield Township, Montgomery County. There, he graduated from Penn Manor Elementary, Hillcrest Junior High School and Springfield Township High School where he met lifelong friends that he cherished until his last day. Frank married Mary Kay (McDugall) Cassidy in 1983 and raised his three children – Kristin, Frank and John. Frank was a valued member of the community and coached his daughter’s CYO basketball team at St. Genevieve’s. Frank enjoyed spending countless hours traveling to and watching his sons Frank and John play their favorite sport, ice hockey. Frank graduated from Allentown College (DeSales University) in 1980, earned his CPA and CFP, and built a successful Tax Accounting firm. Frank founded FX Cassidy & Associates, in Bala Cynwyd PA serving countless medical, business, and entrepreneur professionals building relationships with his clients that he cherished until his last day.
Frank was happiest when spending time with his family and friends, whether it be on the golf course, the beaches of Ocean City and Sea Isle, or just relaxing at home without a care in the world. He cherished the relationships that he made with every person he met. He was generous beyond measure with his time, his love, and his loyalty. He reveled in mentoring and helping others grow, whether it be his children, friends, employees, or clients. Everyone to Frank was family and relationships are what Frank cherished most in life.
Frank was known by all who loved him as a kind, gentle soul who always put others first. He saw the beauty of life everywhere and in everything. He loved so easily and was always ready to give a helping hand. Frank looked for the positive in any situation – his life was a teachable moment for all who were fortunate enough to feel the warmth of his love.
