Casey was born on August 10, 1978 in Denver, Colorado. He grew up in Aberdeen and graduated from Aberdeen Central High School. He moved with his parents to Sioux Falls in 1995. Casey was a very caring person and loved helping people, which is why he worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant H and medical technician. When asked what he missed most after he got sick and could not work, he said, Taking care of people. He was employed at Southridge Health Care and at Dow Rummel Village until his health forced him to give up the job he loved. Caseys son, Colin, was his pride and joy.
