Earl Cassorla
Earl Cassorla of Battle Mountain, NV, died on April 25, 2019, as the result of a car accident.

Earl was born to Sarah Baker Cassorla and Gabriel “Red” Cassorla on Sept. 3, 1956, in Rochester, New York. 

Earl graduated from West Irondequoit High School in 1974 and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a degree in electrical Engineering.

He then started his first business, Slate Computer Systems. He and his brother Steven later established Cassorla Bros. Inc., developing their own brand of Roller Coaster fireworks which were distributed nationally, with their retail outlet located in Battle Mountain.

Earl was a kind, humble and generous man with a heart of gold; an enigma, soft spoken but firm in his beliefs and his stand on current affairs and the political climate. 

He didn’t just talk about it. He got involved and tried to make things better for his family, his community, our state and country. 

He served on the local hospital and TV boards. He was very active in the Lander County and state Republican Party for many years and served as Lander County’s Chairman from 2015 until his death.  

Earl was a faithful and devoted son and caregiver to his father, Red, and his brother, Steve. 

His big smile and genuine friendship will be sorely missed by those who loved to spending time at the fireworks store, working with him on various boards, and community projects, family and friends.

Earl is survived by his brother, Steven, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents, Sarah and Gabriel Cassorla. 

Funeral Services were held on May 2, 2019, at Brighton Memorial Chapel with Interment at Britton Road Cemetery in Rochester, New York. Plans for a memorial service in Battle Mountain, NV are pending.
