August 17, 1943 - Nov. 28, 2013
Coy Casey entered this world on August 17, 1943 in Merced and left this world on November 28, 2013 in Modesto at the age of 70 years, 3 months, and 11 days old. He was never married nor had any children.
He was retired from Goodwill for which he worked many years and awarded "Employee of the Year" in 1975. During his retirement years he started a lawn service, pulling his tools behind his bicycle allowing him to spend time traveling all over Modesto meeting and talking with people.
He would spend time with his buddies, John and Ralph, riding their scooters all over Modesto, taking trips to Black Oak Casino or visiting with friends and neighbors. He was a connoisseur of adult literature and always willing to discuss the subject with neighbors, family or friends at his favorite watering hole.
He had a deep love for his family as it was always on display in his home and he was the keeper of family information. He would send a card, make a phone call or stop by your place to celebrate a wedding anniversary, birthday or special occasions.
He is survived by twin brother Roy Casey of Turlock, L.E. "Red" Casey of Ceres, Al Casey of Modesto, Paul Casey Sr. and wife Paulette of Modesto; his sisters, Martha Rae (Casey) and husband Kenneth McNamara of Ceres, and Betty Faye (Casey) Thomas of Turlock; and 24 nieces and nephews, 32 great nieces and nephews, 33 great-great nieces and nephews, and four great-, great-, great- nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, James Clinton Casey Sr. and Essie Mae (Luellen) Casey of Modesto, brothers Jessie Floyd Casey of Culver City, Amos Glen Casey of Wichita Kan., William Marian Casey of Long Beach, J.B. Casey of Turlock, James Clinton Casey Jr. of Phoenix Ariz., and sister Catherine Kay (Casey) Stiles of Ripon.
