He will be missed by nieces Lindsey, Clellie, Molly, Willa, and Ellie and by nephews Ben, Ethan, and Waylon.
Casey was a happy, healthy child that loved to be outside. There was always a special spark inside of him. He’d get a mischievous twinkle in his eye every time he would crack a joke or do something that might give his mom a heart attack. The first thing Casey truly wanted was a skateboard. His look of disappointment when Santa brought him a different present will never be forgotten. His joy of finally getting his first skateboard will never be forgotten either. He loved customizing it and happily dragged his parents to every skate park he could. A true highlight in his life was when he got to meet Tony Hawk.
Skating was a hobby that brought Casey great joy, but he also loved to camp, hike, snowboard, and hang out with friends. Everything was better for him when he did it with friends. He was a true and loyal friend and they proved time and time again how much they loved him. He was never afraid to live life and make mistakes. Luckily for his family, he was great at learning from those mistakes. He used them to grow closer to his friends and family. He always stayed close to his family and almost never argued or said goodbye without an “I love you.” He was loved unconditionally by his parents and siblings. Everyone wanted to be just a little bit more like Casey. He was the best of us. Casey loved kids and was adored by all his nieces and nephews. He made every single one of them feel loved and important.
Casey’s final act was one of a pure hero. He donated his organs to five people that desperately needed them and will be able to help countless more with further donations.
Skateboarding was one of Casey’s favorite hobbies and he died doing something he loved. The family asks that everyone please wear a helmet for Casey every time you skate. Please share his story and spread helmet awareness.
Casey’s celebration of life will be held Sunday July 17, 2022 at Willow Park in Logan Utah. He was most comfortable in his favorite band t-shirts, flannels, and hats. Everyone is encouraged to wear your most comfortable attire.
