MILLINOCKET and SKOWHEGAN - Robert R. "Bob" LaCasse, 87, passed away Sunday, July 13, 2014, at a Bangor hospital. He was born Dec. 28, 1926, in Skowhegan, the son of Joseph F. and Delia M. (Sylvain) LaCasse.

Bob was a graduate of Skowhegan, class of 1945, where he was a gifted athlete that lettered in football, basketball, baseball, and track. He was a World War II veteran, serving in the Army. He attended Farmington State Teachers College on the G.I. Bill, and later attained a master's degree in education from the University of Maine at Orono. Bob was a teacher for more than 35 years, first in South Paris, and then in Millinocket during the 1960s and 70s, from where he retired. While a teacher in Millinocket, he was a football coach in the Little Giant football program and also at Stearns High School. He was a lifelong avid fan of Notre Dame football. Bob will be remembered as a loving and involved father and grandfather, and was very proud of his grandchildren.
