Obituary

Johnny Wayne Casey, 75, passed away Thursday, April 16, 2020 at the Falcon Lake Nursing home in Zapata, Texas. He leaves his devoted wife of 52 years, Carolyn Tippen Casey; his daughter, Leslie Wild; son, John Todd Casey, and three amazing grandsons.

He was born on February 9, 1945 in Raymondville, Texas. He was the first in his family of five children to go to college. He earned his business degree from Sam Houston State College in 1968 and led a successful career with Thomas J Lipton Incorporated as a top salesman for many years. Most people knew Johnny for his passion as an outfitter in the Rio Grande Valley. He was both an expert angler and avid hunter. Most weekends and holidays you could find him in his element, surrounded by nature on the rustic ranch land. He lived for the early morning drives on the ranch, scouting wildlife and enjoying the freedom of the great outdoors. He cooked the best tasting fajitas this side of the border! Johnny was also a sports fan and in his younger years could throw a nasty curve ball, as well as swing the golf club for hours during a day on the course. He lived big and played hard. If he wasn't playing, he was watching. Johnny lived to see his Astros win the World Series in 2017. He was always quick to tell others about the accomplishments of his three grandsons; his memory will certainly live on in the many experiences their Grandpa shared with them hunting, fishing, building, and playing ball. His health declined in his last few years after his diagnosis of cirrhosis of the liver. He had the love and support of his family to the end.

The family wishes to thank the kind people at the Falcon Lake Nursing Home for their tender care in his final days. Due to the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus, as well as Johnny's wishes, there will not be a service. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers during this season.
