Robert Casey Kuhn passed away April 13th, 2017, at Peppi's Hospice, Tucson, AZ. He was born to Robert Frederick Kuhn and Elizabeth Casey Kuhn in Buffalo, NY on July 20th, 1943.

Casey spent his childhood along with his sisters Karen Smith and Julie Fredette in Roxbury, CT, where he formed bonds and memories that would last his lifetime.  He met the love of his life, Mary Herrington, at Thiel College.  They married in 1969 and eventually settled in Mary's hometown of Hillsdale, NY, where they raised their children, Carrie Kuhn and Sarah Campbell. Casey took immense joy and pride in his daughters and his grandsons, Tristin and Charlie Campbell, and shared his love and respect with sons-in-law, John Dandurand and Peter Campbell.

Casey joined the Herrington family business and bought and ran Herrington Fuels for 25 years. Through his business and community relationships Casey was generous and compassionate, quietly helping when he saw need.

Casey loved reading, golf and fishing trips, and he and Mary traveled often with close and valued friends. He was a philosopher, always motivated to do the right thing—Casey lived life with grace and courtesy. He had a fabulous memory, a dry, teasing wit, and a talent for easy company. Casey leaves behind a legacy of love and caring. We celebrate Casey Kuhn—a true gentleman, who made us all better just by being himself.

A Celebration of Life will be held June 24, 2017 at 2 pm at the Roeliff Jansen Park in Hillsdale NY. Driving Address: 9140 Route 22, HIllsdale, NY 12529

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions in Casey’s honor may be made to:

Dearest Poppy Bear,
There isn't a moment that you aren't missed, celebrated and honored. Your legacy of kindness, love, friendship, humility, community, patience, forgiveness, humor and true connection lives on in every person who's life you touched. I'm incredibly grateful for you. Your lessons and love endure, your example continues to inspire me. Thank you for teaching me to be brave and open hearted. To receive the gifts of this life with a glad heart...the lightness, the darkness and every beautiful thing in between. I love you, forever.

Can it possibly be five years? A lifetime of friendship unlike any other friend I've ever known. The boyhood days in bucolic Roxbury where we spent so many hours/days just living our goofy little boy experiences, then on to Utah so many years later with our skiing, partying with close friends then on to babies being born, yours and mine, and our family excursions here and there in California, Minnesota, Vermont, Connecticut, etc. A lifetime of memories and happiness that you added to my life will remain with me for eternity.

3 years have passed in a flash, but you are never far from the thoughts of those that knew you and were blessed with your kindness. The country is crazy now and scary too and I'm sure you would have a few wise things to say about the state of affairs of the world. You are missed by many and especially your family and friends. Continue to RIP !

My heart clearly doesn't know how to tell time- to think it's been a year since you embarked on your next adventure is unfathomable. Filled with gratitude and love for you Dad- I miss you every moment.

I know he's up there somewhere, fishing for stars off the tip of the crescent moon, with his Dad beside him. Maybe they're having a laugh at all of us for feeling so sad when they're having such a great time. What a great guy!!

I won't forget the last time I saw Casey. He was in good spirits and in fact ..... the light in the room. His journey had brought him to an amazing place of peace that impacted me deeply. He was focused on daily acceptance and his gratitude for Mary and for the life he still had, laughing happily in anticipation of the winter holidays with all the children. His presence was a gift and I feel blessed to have been there. Thank you Casey and Mary

Dear Kuhn Family,
Thank you Carrie for all the wonderful memorial photos. Bob and I appreciated seeing Casey's beautiful life from beginning to end. Our
special time with Casey was with his parents Bob and Libby attending the delicious hamburger cookouts every February in Tucson. Best hamburger ever!!!! After the passing of Bob and then Libby, we were
then able to have lunch together again every February to enjoy the
company of Casey and family, which we plan to continue this February
in honor of Casey and to continue to celebrate the Kuhn Family!!
We were blessed to know Casey, saddened with his loss, and will miss him! Our healing thoughts and prayers to all the Kuhn Family,
With Love, Curtice and Bob McCloy

Dear Mary, Carrie and Sarah,

Casey was a special person, intelligent, wise and fun to be with, all rolled into one. He always made me laugh. He had his own spin on life and shared it willingly, making others positively affected. 

I will never forget all the times we spent together; your wedding Mary, trips where we stopped for the night, before the kids were born, because we were passing by, longer trips to Alaska, Hawaii,and Italy. Trips to each other's home, sharing great food and good cheer!

I especially have to note the incredible friendship that your Casey and my Bob established (instantaneously) upon meeting! They were like two peas in a pod.....chatting and laughing together like two magpies!!!
It was that way up to the last....20 some years later life will forever feel empty without him.  Rest in peace, Casey

Dear Mary, Carrie and Sarah,
I just heard Casey passed away. At about that same time, he crossed my mind and I was wondering how he was. I'm sorry I didn't reach out. Oh, the things you
put off and later regret.
When I first met Casey we really hit it off. He was so friendly and interesting it was easy for me to really like him. Sometimes I don't warm up too fast to people but not Casey, it was instant.
But, too many miles and other distractions kept us from spending more than few times together over the years. However we always started up where we had left off. Casey made that easy with his always interesting stories and doings.
Some people come and go through your life and make an impact. Casey was one of those and I will truly miss him.

My heart breaks for all of you as your loss is horrific. Having you as my neighbors for a short time was wonderful and every encounter with your family was pleasant. Casey always showed a high level of devotion to his friends and family and a superb love and respect for his incredible wife, Mary. I admire those attributes of character and by example he lived his life with integrity and kindness. I shall remember him for his amazing strengths, contagious laugh, storytelling, family values and common sense.

Casey was the brother I never had, and the memories of our unique friendship go back to the late 40's, before we started the first grade. We were best friends from first grade forward, right to the end of his amazing life. Thru all those years there was never an ill word exchanged between us. There were years when we live hundreds, even thousands of miles apart, and there were years we lived a few blocks from each other. We were in each other's weddings, took family vacations together, and shared the joys of weddings and fatherhood. He will forever be in my heart.

Time is so short and yet so long. Missing my friend as time passes us by. Miss seeing you and Mary and your phone calls. Someday we will all be together. Not yet.

 I sold oil to Casey for years, beginning in the early eighties.  He was not only a good customer, but a good friend.
