BOB CASSILLY, Vianney68, FOUND DEAD TODAY AT 61
Sculptor and City Museum founder and leader Bob Cassilly was found dead in a bulldozer today at the site of his new "Cementland" in North St. Louis. The 'dozer had rolled down a hill sideways and he was not wearing a seatbelt; it's being called an accident on the TV news. Bob was a well-loved St. Louis figure of our generation. Born in 1949, he grew up in Kirkwood and graduated in 1968 from Vianney. Watch the St. Louis Post, Facebook, and The Beacon newspaper for more news. I'm sure he'll be featured in Riverfront Times and Webster-Kirkwood Times also. There is a Facebook page to remember him, it is here. If you're interested watch tonight's news around our area, and the Internet. His sculpture is also found in Dallas, Brooklyn, NY, Virginia and San Diego to name some other places. Here we see the turtles along highway 40 as we head eastward and of course the City Museum is his main site. Cementland has been under construction for 10 years up on Riverview Blvd. Bob was trained as a sculptor, and graduated from Fontbonne. St. Louis will be less without him.
