Christopher James Casey
“Tall, dark and handsome!”
He always had a smile or grin. He and his brother Jeff seemed to always be grinning when you saw them or they saw you.
Chris had a generous spirit; a caring and giving soul. Chris was generally quiet but could ‘talk up a storm’ if the subject interested him. He read the newspaper from front to back regularly. He could talk about the most minute subjects only seen in the newspaper!
Chris loved sports of all kinds. He played baseball, football, tennis, and loved to swim. He had three bicycles! Guess he loved to ride bikes, right? He loved watching sports and placing a friendly wager or two ever so often.
Chris had a winning personality and was featured in a documentary produced by The Veteran’s Hospital about veterans assimilating back into society after their active service in the military. His personality also prompted him to volunteer recently for Veteran’s passing out information about COVID-19 vaccinations.
Christopher James Casey was born on November 2, 1958. At his death on Thursday, May 20, 2021 he was sixty-two. He was the youngest of eight children to Mary Louise (Tribble) Casey and Paul Donald Casey. Both his father, Paul Donald and his brother, Jeffrey Lynn Casey preceded him in death.
He was a member of Gaines United Methodist Church from birth.
He attended school at Madisonville Elementary, Lyon Jr. High School and was a graduate of Withrow High School.
Chris chose to join the United States Army and was immediately assigned to South Korea. His work while a member of the Army was food preparation/cook. That skill and interest continued after being discharged from the Army.
His gift of friendliness seldom found him among enemies. His love of music ranged from the 70’s to current music styles.
Chris will be missed greatly by his daughter, Taylor Christina Peterson (Cincinnati, Ohio) and son and daughter, Marcus Davis and Whitney Davis (Denver, Colorado), and grandchildren Elizabeth, Julianna, Gage, Jada and Rashad.
He leaves the following family members to remember him in the coming days and years: His mother, Mary Casey, his sisters Denise, Donna Jean and Kimberley Ann, his brothers Ronald (Buster), Robert Edward (Bobby) Casey and Darrell Essex Casey.
Aunts, cousins and long-time friends will remember Chris with love and fondness.
We will all miss him and will recall all the fun times we had together! Rest in peace Cre´.
Due to this pandemic, it has made it increasingly difficult to congregate in groups. The family has decided to forego a gathering at this time. Please enjoy our memories of Chris with this video presentation. If you would like a program, please contact the family and we can make sure you receive on.
