Rodney "Rod" Fassett Obituary

Rodney James Fassett, age 95 of Hesperia, passed away peacefully at home late Sunday evening, March 31, 2024.  Rod was born December 23, 1928 in Rolette, North Dakota, to George James and Winnifred Alice (Anderson) Fassett.  He was a US Army Veteran of the Korean War.  Family came first in Rod’s life and his beloved hilltop homestead just south of Hesperia added to his pride and joy.  An Ironworker by trade, he retired in 1990 from Northshore Construction Company in Muskegon.  To date, he was a proud member of Iron Workers Local 340 for 70 years.  Rod loved scroll sawing in his basement workshop and he was an avid gardener.  On April 14, 1951, Rod married the love of his life, Grace E. Mansfield, and together they enjoyed nearly 73 years of marriage.  Grace survives him along with 4 daughters:  Kathy (Jim) Muckey, Debbie (Phil Van Lente) Fassett, Laurie (Ron) Gauche, Julie Roe; daughter-in-law, Sharon Fassett; 10 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren; brother, Jerry (Pat) Fassett; and several nieces and nephews.  Rod was preceded in death by his son, Andrew Fassett; son-in-law, John Roe; and by his brother and sister-in-law, Shirley “George” and Irene Fassett.  According to Rod’s wishes there will be no visitation or service and a private memorial will take place at a later date.  You can sign the online guest book at  Arrangements are by Kroeze-Wolffis Funeral Home, Inc. of Fremont.
