CASEY, Phillip Joseph


In loving memory of Phillip Joseph Casey who passed away peacefully at the age of 84 on Monday, August 28, 2017 at Golden Birches Terrace, Blind River.  Beloved husband to Lizabeth (predeceased).  Loving father to Margaret-Rose Negrych (Jeffrey) and Maureen Casey (Jeremy Bobiwash).  Adored Poppa to Erica and Bauer, Kayla, Hunter and Maeson.

Born in Athol, Massachusetts in 1933 to Theotime and Dorina, Phil grew up with his ten brothers and sisters in New Brunswick.  Coming to Elliot Lake as a young man, he met and married Lizabeth Huykman, raised a family, and enjoyed a long career at Rio Algom.  He retired to his cottage in Blind River where he enjoyed fishing, puttering, tinkering, collecting and watching his beloved Montreal Canadiens.  Always willing to lend a hand, he will be dearly missed by his family, friends and neighbours.

A special thank you goes out to all his neighbours and friends who dropped in to say hi during his time at Golden Birches. Heartfelt appreciation and condolences to the staff and residents at Golden Birches whom he considered his family as well.

At the family request there will be no services. Arrangements entrusted to the Menard Funeral Home, Blind River.
