Condolences

Condolence from Allen Kuntze sent on September 7, 2017

Casey was one heck of a nice fellow. I first met him around 2004 at the Milverton Legion. I picked him up a few times to attend functions. He was a quiet, kind gentleman. He was well known, respected and liked at the Legion and no doubt at Country Meadows as well. I was very surprised to hear of his passing. I had no idea he was in his 97th year! I went to his home on Main Street in Milverton years ago and he told me about his time in the Navy. This was for a presentation I was asked to do at the Legion for the Nov 11th Banquet. I will forever remember that time. I will certainly miss him as I am sure many, many others will as well. My heart goes out to his family for losing such a wonderful man. Godspeed Casey.
