I’m very saddened to hear of Mr. Casey’s passing. I pray that Mike, Cathy and his family and friends are comforted at this trying time.
The Casey family were neighbors in my youth and all of us neighborhood kids would congregate at their home for hours of entertainment by Mr. Casey. His personality was fun loving and he was very generous with his time. We were fascinated by his knowledge of radio and his job at the radio station. He taught us about ‘dubbing’ recordings on our little cassette recorders and how to mix sound effects into the music we recorded off the radio. He was a kind and patient teacher and I will cherish those childhood memories forever.
I hope that this time of mourning is joined with the memories of the truly good man that I remember.
May our Heavenly Father comfort his family and continue to bless you all.
