Preceded in death by his father Billy Burke Casey and mother, Mildred Millington Casey. Gary is survived by his daughter, Mende Casey (Chuck) and son, Neil Casey (Elizabeth), granddaughter, Abigail Arnold and the mother of his children, Gail Casey.

Gary served in the US Army at Fort Campbell. He spent his career working at BellSouth and retired in 1997. He filled his retirement years doing the things he loved best. He loved going to the movies and trying new restaurants. He found great joy in exploring new places and being in nature. He was proud to have camped in every state in the Continental US. His greatest passions were birding and photography. He was an excellent photographer and leaves behind many beautiful photos documenting his travels all over the world.

A memorial service will be held later this year on his favorite holiday, the 4th of July.

    My late wife and I were good friends of Gary and Gail many years ago. Gail was my wife’s roommate prior to marriage, along with Ginna Tarkington when I met my wife Jean. We had many great times with Gary and Gail. I especially remember Gary being a very kind and gentle man to us. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. God bless.

      Thank you Raymond for your kind words. I was so sorry to learn that Jean had passed away. There have been many times over the past few years that I’ve intended to try to get in touch and renew our friendship but somehow didn’t get that accomplished. I hope you and your family are doing well. I know that you must miss Jean so very much but hope that your children are close by and if they are, I’m sure that is a comfort to you. Thank you again for your message. I have many wonderful memories of you, Jean and Michelle and would love to know how you and your family are doing
