Casey Robert Dempsey, age 23, born in Apple Valley, CA, died at his home on March 24, and joins his deceased friends and relatives in a place befitting his courage, intelligence, creativity and hyper dedication to learning about all aspects of life.
In accordance with his wishes, a ‘wake’ was held where he was honored by friends and family. We reminisced about many of Casey’s attributes, especially his wit. Ingenuity, conviction and fabulous laugh (on those occasions he really let loose).
With a size 16 shoe, “6’3” and large frame, he appeared to be a college football lineman, but his heart was more focused on being a gentle, thoughtful and, deep down, caring person. This man enjoyed a cigar, adult beverage and adding to his collection of hundreds of unique and diverse books. At the same time, he was working toward his goal of hiking from Boise to Canada. He aspired to be in a position where he could help people while still maintaining his identity of being an “individual.”
Casey means ”brave.” Son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, uncle, friend and lover, we will never forget you and your deeds. All of us will be together again when the time is right. Peace to your soul. Rest In Paradise.
