Rick Caslin, loving son of Teresa and the late George Caslin, died Sunday, May 18. He was 59. Rick fought a valiant battle against acute promyelocytic leukemia.
Rick and Donna want to thank all of their friends and family for the love, prayers and encouragement during this difficult battle. (Rick knew that you were all there for him.)
Rick is survived by his beloved wife, Donna; stepchildren and their partners, Lisa and Kevin Fullerton, and Mike and Gwyn Rotramel; grandchildren Jake, Alexandra and Reece Fullerton; big brother and sister-in-law, Bill and Connie Caslin; nephews, Andrew Caslin and Eric Caslin and his wife, Tracy, and a very special person, Dr. Joe Lavelle, who fought hard for Rick’s life.
An informal remembrance gathering, as Rick requested, will be held later this summer for family and friends. A tree will be planted in Rick’s honor along the bike path in Yellow Springs. Contributions may be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society or to the James Cancer Center at the Ohio State University.
