He was an avid lover of boating, loved time spent at marina with family and many boating friends, loved working on his boat and had many countless wonderful hours with family and grandchildren on the boat and even more in the dingy which his grandchildren still cherish to this day.

Casey’s easy-going demeanor and outgoing personality made him very popular, he was well-loved and liked by all who met him. He was adored by his children and grandchildren.
