After retiring, he worked part-time for Masterpiece Flower Company. Casey was an active member of Rush Creek Bible Church, where he took great pride in caring for the landscape and mowing the lawn.

He will be lovingly remembered by his children, Randy  (Vicky) VandenBerg, Kathy (Bryan) Drake, Shelly (Randy) VanEngen; son-in-law, Jeff (Terry) McBride; 12 grandchildren; 23 great grandchildren; sister, Martha Riemersma; sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, Carol VandenBerg, Gordon Werkema, Carol Werkema,  Jeannie (Gord) VanHouten, David (April)  Werkema; numerous nieces and nephews; and many friends including a special friend, Evelyn DeHaan.  Visitation will be held from 5 - 8 PM on Monday, April 25, at Stroo Funeral Home, and from 10 - 10:45 AM on Tuesday prior to the service at church.

My sympathy to your family. Rog thought a lot of Casey . I had hoped to make the visitation or service today but Rog passed 4 years ago today and I just found I couldn’t do it…. But my prayers and thoughts are with you.
