Casey spent most of his life in Sloatsburg NY, close to the Ramapo Mountains where he would hike for hours. He shared his love for the outdoors by teaching children to hunt, fish and respect nature.
His love of history often found him collecting and researching artifacts.
Our family is profoundly grateful for the love and support of so many.
His family and friends didn’t see the pain that was behind the smile.
Since his death so many have recalled his humor and generosity.
There will be a celebration of Casey’s life at a future date, outside in one of the parks he loved.

TO THOSE WHOM I LOVE & THOSE WHO LOVE ME
When I am gone, release me, let me go
I have so may things to see and do,
You mustn't tie yourself to me with too many tears
But be thankful we had so many good years.
I gave you my love, and you can only guess
How much you've given me in happiness.
I thank you for the love that you have shown,
But now it is time I traveled on alone.
So grieve for me a while, if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It is only for a while that we must part,
So treasure the memories within your heart.
I won't be far away for life goes on.
And if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you can't see or touch me, I will be near.
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear,
All my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you come this way alone,
I'll greet you with a smile and a "Welcome Home".
Arrangements have been entrusted to Cornelius, Dodd & Connell Funeral Home, Middletown, NY.
