Besides his wife, he is survived by two daughters, his buddies, that will forever carry on his legendary sense of humor, Caron Casey of Hopkinton and Mary Casey Linan and her husband Cristhian of Waltham.
He is also survived by three brothers, Thomas Casey Jr. of Lancaster, Michael Casey of Myrtle Beach and Kevin Casey of Milford, two sisters, Kathleen Crotty of East Bridgewater and Patricia Otto of Marstons Mills, many nieces and nephews, and his beloved three grand-dogs; Murphy, Stan and Finn.
