"John I finally could sit long enough to watch the whole video that was posted as a tribute to you. Every time I would try to, I got too emotional. I wanted to share a story about when I first heard of you dating Lisa. My mom told me that Lisa was dating a guy from Kentucky. I said "Kentucky?!?"  Knowing Lisa to be a very New England type girl, it surprised me. But boy when I met you, you were hard not to like. Was there ever a guy as down to earth and genuine as you?  I doubt it. You were a one of a kind.  And that southern accent!  Even though I didn't see you often, the times I did left such an impression on me. I'm still pretty upset, but know you are in a better place. Selfishly I wish you were still here but someday we will all talk Sox again up in the big stadium upstairs."

"Dont even know where to start. I cant say enough about this man. He was a brother to me from joking around with me to always being there to do whatever i needed. I could write a book & it would all be great things .John was a kind , loving & caring person .We had so much fun together. From going to Gatlinburg  to see the snow at the last minute or to just jumping on the motorcycles at the last minute to go grab a bite to eat or just a dairy queen run.David & I were so blessed to have been able to share the time we had with him . Ill never forget the look on Johns face the day we left seeing him standing in his driveway when we left to move back to Florida. He looked like he had just lost his best friend.  Well  now we have lost ours  & my heart is broke.John you will be missed so very much.We will meet again in HEAVEN.   R.I.P..John Casey."

"Lisa...reading all the comments reminds me of all the love john spread to all of us.  thinking back over the years you cant help but smile because of the laughs he brought. both of you grew up together and both grew into a wonderful loving example. i wish i had a magic wand to take the pain away from you and again that is the love that is getting stronger at each passing minute    you love will never end, it will continue to grow and in time you will remember all the laughter and not this horriable pain you are feeling now.  i will always be just a call away. i love you both"

"I haven't seen John since he left Ashland almost 30 years ago,but time and distance does not lesson a friend ship . I'm  deeply sadden for your loss and will keep your family  in our prayers"

"John was one of a kind. Sooooo laidback I think you could have said.      " John your paints are on fire and he would look up and just say oaky thanks" and you had better not leave your cell phone sitting on your desk. Because the next text you will get is from your peer,  
Sr. Mgr. or Director, telling you thank you. But they don't want to be that kind of friend with you! I am still not sure if I can let my guard down.
RIP J.C.   ( I don't care what you think. That guy was funny!)"

This tribute was added by Chuck Brister on 24th November 2015

"Man where to begin there were so many good qualities about this man!! He was a great friend and would do anything for you at the drop of a hat. He treated me like a little brother. He took me under his wing and taught me what to do when I first became a manager at FEDEX and I will forever be grateful for that. I can't even count how many times he watched my kids just so my wife and I could go on a date, that was the kind of person he was he always put everyone before himself. I am honored and blessed to be apart of your life , you will truly be missed my friend RIP God Bless you."

"To the family of John Casey. I can remember when Brandon came to the station with his posse. Rick and John. John became my boss at FedEx. He was always a level headed boss. A boss that you would want to work for. But he was more than that. He was a real good friend. I can remember him walking down the belt at FedEx and always stop in front of my truck. He would always ask me was I alright today and whats new going on with me. We would always have him laughing at us and at times he would cut up with us at times.I will never forget his joking with us and his smile and his love for the Boston Redsox and Ga Bulldogs and how level headed he was. He was truly the very best boss I ever had at FedEx. Dear John Casey. You will truly be miss. I will cont to pray for his family. He was a very
good man!!!"

"I'll always remember John for being such a kind and loving person to everyone one he knew.  I don't recall one time that I ever saw John angry, he was always so calm and laid back. John and titi (lisa) let me live in their home when I was having problems at home many years ago. John treated me as if I was his own son and I will never forget that. He went out of his way to get me my first job at fedex. I lived with John and titi again for about another year after that and learned many valuable life lessons from him. He always had a way to light up a room with his sense of humor. I'm blessed to call John part of my family for ever. He will truly be missed but will never be forgotten. I can't tell you how sad I am but it helps knowing you are no longer in pain.

                                                                       love, daniel"

"I met John when I worked at FedEx in Austin. My husband and I helped him and Lisa buy a home in Hutto, TX. John and I had one thing in common and that was our love of baseball. He the Sox and me the Tigers. We often teased each other when they played against each other. He was a great sport and a lovely man. He will be missed by so many. I can tell by all of these memorials I've read so far. Rest in Peace John."

This tribute was added by Chad Benton on 23rd November 2015

"John, I can't believe that you have left us here to go fly high above. The time we spent running around in Florida, and all that you taught me about being a manager was some of the best times I had in Florida! Even though we where miles apart, when I talked to you it was like we lived next door. You always knew when to crack a joke and break up the tension, and when to be serious and to the point, you was a mentor and a brother to a lot of people. You will be missed my brother! Spread your wings and soar until we meet again!"

This tribute was added by David Lacko on 23rd November 2015

"It's still hard to believe that John is no longer with us.  I still remember most of the moments we spent together.  For example, his 50th birthday or my 8th birthday!  Or all the times we had him over and had a great time.  John has been with me since the day I was born.  He is very important to me in my life.  I don't remember any day since I was born without him and I know John will watch over me the rest of my life.  Love Hali "Princess""

"John was a great man.  I would play with him.  We were best friends.  He's been a part of my life my whole life ever since I was born and now he met Jesus and Heavenly Father.  And thanks for always coming to my baseball games and practicing with me.  I will see you in heaven.  Love Coleman "The Rock""

"I can't believe we lost John. I can never express through words how much influence John has had in my life. I will truly miss him. John was the type person who would do anything for anyone in need. He did all that while never expecting anything in return. I thought of John as a brother and always longed to have a heart as big as his. It was truly an honor to know him and spend time with him. You have left a lasting impression on me so until we meet again my friend. I love you brother."

"John, The last time I saw you was in May at the baseball game we went to with Lisa and Jason. It was an awesome time and I'm thankful for it. What else am I thankful for?  Your kind, laid back spirit. You always were so calm and were the ying to Lisa's yang. You guys fit like puzzle pieces fitting perfectly together and you were a valuable asset to our family. I'll miss you so much.  I think I'll miss our sports talks and all your Red Sox shirts and hats you so proudly wore. God received an amazing angel when you knocked on his door. Now you can root for the Sox from above. We'll be looking up high fiving you."

"I will never forget your patient walk at the Disney Mall place where you were so good waiting for Lisa to pick out her Coach items (was that the Disney Mall? Or the outlets?) Either way... you were such a wonderful husband and the second I met you I loved you! Your accent made me smile and your sense of humor was exactly what it needed to be to fit in with us. I will miss you. I'm sorry you are so far away and I won't be able to be there physically to say goodbye, but I'm thinking of you and Kath and I are sending hugs and love to you and Lisa and all of those whose lives you have touched. xoxoxo Take good care of Nana while you are there!"

"Oh my God! Here come the tears again as I type this. What I would give right now just to have you  here again to aggravate me one more time! Why did this have to happen??? Why??? I miss you so much and still cannot believe this is real. The only thing I am thankful for is that you are no longer in pain and suffering. Please watch over mom, dad and Dan for us. Don't worry we will all be here for Lisa. RIP I love you."

my deep condolences go out to you and I will continue to pray for you. John was a cool guy he will be missed. Words of comfort:

John 14:1-4 NIV
14 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God[a]; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”"

"To the family,
  I'm very sorry for your loss. Though I don't know you personally, please accept my deepest condolences. When I've lost loved ones, I've found comfort in knowing the hope got the future.

  We can have confidence that this will soon happen because " with God all things are possible."
