At home, surrounded by his loved ones, Casey's spirit left this earth on Jan. 15, 2013.

Casey is survived by his Wife Emilie Doyle, Son Travis (Hannah) McDonald and his Grandchildren Myles and Jaden McDonald, Parents Wilfred and Beatrice McDonald, Sister Karen McDonald. He is also survived by his nieces and nephews Rachel Smith, Randy and Kimberly McDonald, Melanie Crutcher and great nephew Quinten Taylor, as well as beloved aunts, uncles and cousins.
