Obituary of Jack R. Casey

Jack Regis Casey, 82, of Latrobe, passed away Tuesday, June 23, 2020 in the Allegheny General Hospital, Pittsburgh. He was born December 17, 1937 in Latrobe, a son of the late Regis C. and Marion (Poorman) Casey. Prior to retirement in 1997, Jack was employed by the Latrobe Steel Co. having over 40 years of service. He was a member of the St. Vincent Basilica Parish in Latrobe. Jack had been an outstanding athlete in his younger years and was awarded the Ray V. Wild Award in 1955 by the Latrobe High School. He continued being involved with sports most of his life having refereed basketball for over 40 years and umpiring softball. He was instrumental in the formation of the Junior Pro Basketball program in Latrobe and was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers, Penguins, Pirates, and Pitt College Football fan. When it came to sports trivia, Jack was the man to ask. His knowledge of sports statistics and history were evident in many conversations over the years and settled many arguments. Jack is survived by his wife of over 57 years, Patricia (Farrell) Casey, two children, Carole L. Love and her husband Bruce, and John C. Casey; two sisters, Janet Reynolds (Leroy) and Judy Caric (Lenny); brothers-in-law: Jack Farrell (Mary), Tom Farrell (Linda), Dan Farrell, and Joe Farrell (Elaine), and a number of nieces and nephews.
