Casey

Winston-Salem- Clarence Wilton Casey, 92, passed on to be with his heavenly father at 5:28pm Monday, Sept 2, 2019. He was born on March 7, 1927 in Forsyth County to Albert and Maxie “Muzzy” Casey. His Christian faith and love for reading God’s word sustained him over the years. Three-character traits stood out in his life; toughness, work ethic and most importantly unconditional love. His toughness was represented by enlisting in the US Navy during WWII at the age of 17, electrocuted in his mid-20’s as a Bell South telephone lineman, heart attack in his late 40’s, and a battle of cancer. He kept on keeping on. His work ethic includes a 30 plus year teaching career along with working many extra jobs, ambulance driver in Charlotte, Forsyth County reserve sheriff, truck driver, Sunday school teacher, coach and etc. Most importantly was his unconditional love for family and friends. He lived his life by his quote: “Do what you can, when you can, while you can, for as long as you can and if that doesn’t work, start all over again.”
In addition to his parents, Clarence was preceded in death by brothers, Beecher and Hubert Casey, along with his sister Bonnie Frye.
