It is with great sadness that the family of Robert George Casey announce his passing on February 1, 2021 at the age of 82.
He was born on March 11, 1938 in Atholville and was the son of the late Edward and Phylis (Riley) Casey.
In his younger years, Bob worked as the Assistant Manager at Woolworth's in Moncton. It was there that he was approached by SH Taylor and Companies to come in as partner with the Taylors. This was a partnership he was very proud of. He worked with them as their engineer on their two large boilers, also working as maintenance and many other things. In 1972, the four lane highway was put in to Shediac and the business was sold. Bob moved on to Royal Gardens in Penobsquis, maintaining the same job title. He retired from Royal Gardens in the early 2000's and was stillo missed by all the staff there.
Bob was a hardworking, good, kind man with a heart of gold. He was a jack of all trades, as well as a master of them all.
He will live on in the hearts of his loving wife, Carol (Smith) Casey; his children: Mike Casey and his wife Diane of Fredericton, Jeff Casey of Ottawa, Tanya Conway and her husband Tim of Quispamsis, Jason Steeves of Fredericton, Jeremy Casey and his wife Vanessa of Titusville and Todd Casey and his wife December of Pennsylvania; his brother, Edward and his wife Delores of Ontario; his sisters: Shirley Craswell of Campbelton and Lois Martin and her husband Reginald of Oshawa; his grandchildren: Patrick, Amber, Cameron, Lexy, Macey, Travis, Olivia, Ryan, Brayden, Marrissa and Keagen; 5 great grandchildren; as well as several nieces and nephews.
