James J. Casey

James John Casey, 70, of Southington, CT passed away on February 14 after battling cancer, with his beloved wife, Wanda, by his side.  He and Wanda had been married for 45 years.

Jim was born in Bridgeport, CT on August 9, 1952 and is predeceased by his parents Jean Bacik Casey and Joseph Francis Casey.  

Jim worked in finance as a vice president and CFO of several companies. Jim retired from Uretek LLC in 2014.  Jim loved sports of all kinds.  He had a long history of playing baseball, football, basketball, track, and golf.  He even met his wife coaching her softball team at Sacred Heart University, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business and Finance in 1976. Jim proudly coached both his daughters and served many years as the president of the Southington Girls Softball League.  He passed on his love of sports to his beloved grandchildren.  It brought Jim great joy to watch his grandson, Nick, play soccer and football.  He loved spending time with his grandchildren in all capacities including traveling, vacations at the beach, playing cards, football Sundays, and watching them perform in plays. Jim loved to listen to Elvis, James Taylor, and The Eagles which he would play loud enough for all to hear when he was exercising.   Jim was very proud of his Irish heritage and one of his greatest memories was taking his whole family to Ireland. Jim made sure his family always came first. Jim’s motto was work hard, play hard. Jim gave all he had to his wife and daughters; he always said, only the best for my girls. He taught us to love unconditionally. 

In addition to his wife, Jim is survived by his daughters Laura Casey and her husband Ben Lord of Putney, Vermont; Kelly Casey and her husband Will Okeson of Plainville, Connecticut; and very dear family friend, Jaime Stevens of Honolulu, HI. He is also survived by his three grandchildren: Eva, Nick, and Wren (Simon).  In addition to his immediate family, Jim is survived by his mother-in-law, Elfrieda Daly; four brothers:  Joseph and his wife Karen, Brian and his wife Susan, Michael, and David;  and many nieces and nephews.

Heartfelt appreciation to all of those who helped keep the family’s strength up through this difficult time.
