SS. Peter and Paul Catholic School in Ionia has dedicated its library to honor alumnus Jon Caswell, who was a staunch supporter and respected community figure. Caswell was 77 when he passed away April 18.
At the May 2 dedication ceremony, friends and family shared memories and reflected on Caswell's commitment to the school, the parish and the Ionia community.
A veteran and a businessman, Caswell also served in many organizations and boards in the Ionia area.
