Gerald Peter Casey, 78 November 8, 2020.
He was born to Lucille and Joseph Casey on November 20, 1941 and was the
oldest of 7 children.
He grew up in New Britain Connecticut. An early believer in hard work, he got his first job at age 10, managing three different newspaper routes. He was a member of the Civil Air Patrol and pumped gas at Robertson Field in Plainville in order to fulfill a dream of learning to fly airplanes. After graduating from New Britain High School in 1960 he joined the United States Air Force and served in Germany where he developed skills in the newly developing field of computer science. He returned to the United States and built a career in information technology. He met and married the love of his life Joanne (Crowley) Casey on April 22 1967. He and Joanne settled in Ridgefield Connecticut where they raised their 2 children. While building his career and raising his family, Jerry earned a Bachelor's degree in Marketing and Business Administration from the University of Hartford. He retired as a senior executive after many years in the insurance industry.
Jerry was an avid runner, completing 14 marathons over the years including the New York City and Boston marathons. He served on the Board of the Ridgefield Symphony for several years and enjoyed being an adult leader on his church's Emmaus retreats. Jerry loved cooking, reading and entertaining and spending summers at the beach with friends on the Rhode Island shoreline. His true passion was flying and he had numerous adventures piloting his Piper Warrior aircraft for many years. He was known by his friends for his storytelling and for his willingness to lend a helping hand in any difficult situation.
He and Joanne retired to Vero Beach in 2014.
He is survived by his beloved wife Joanne; his daughter Margaret Casey; son Sean Casey and daughter in law Jennifer (Foran); his grandsons who were the light of his life, Maximiliano Gerald Casey-Bolanos and Jack Finn Casey; as well as his siblings William, Richard, Marjorie Skigen, Lucille McCarthy, Russell and Robert; numerous nieces and nephews and many dear friends including his childhood friends Ralph Mele and Alan and Larry Witkin.

Thought for the day
"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be
public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be
tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should
be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to
work, instead of living on public assistance."
- Cicero - 55 BC
So here it is. What have we learned in 2075, years?
So, evidently nothing.
Remember: if you don't learn from history you are bound to repeat it
