Helmut “Mutt” Werner Kasiske, 95, of San Angelo, Texas, passed away at home on May 3, 2019. He was born March 13, 1924 in Kurten, Brazos County, Texas, to Julius Johan Kasiske and Minnie Henrietta Mohr. Helmut grew up near Austin in a German settlement known as Richland. His father was the pastor at St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church, and the family with 9 children lived in the parsonage next door. He graduated from Manor High School in 1941, lettering in football, basketball and track. He was also musical, singing in the glee club and playing sousaphone in the band. During World War II, he served in the Army Air Corps as a navigator, and also played sousaphone for the Headquarters Band for Troop Carrier Command at Stout Field in Indianapolis. He and his wife, Teresa, were married in Austin on August 1, 1952. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1954 with a degree in geology. Helmut had a lifelong career in the oil industry, and was one of the most respected geophysicists of his time. Upon his retirement from Esso Exploration, he enjoyed many hobbies and activities. These including fishing, hunting, production of fishing rods, welding, touring in their RV, gardening and mesquite woodworking – including several years exhibiting at the annual Texas Mesquite Arts Festival in Fredericksburg.
