He was born on July 5, 1951 in Firebaugh, Ca. to Joseph and Eva Casey. He was known for his ornery but lovable personality. For years, his fulfillment was found in driving a Sunday School bus where he could share his carefree positivity and love for God with many. Carl spent his golden years enjoying his family and friends. He was often found in the “well” of his home church, GBFPC, worshiping with all his might. Carl grew up in Firebaugh, Ca.

After being honorably discharged, he worked as a truck driver for many different companies over the past 50 years. Carl married the love of his life, Rhonda on May 18, 1973 in Delano, Ca. Rhonda was a member of Apostolic Gospel Church, where she played the accordion for several years. They were happily married for almost 50 years.
