JOHNNY LYNN "JOHN BOY" CASEY, JR.
April 4, 1974 - November 22, 2012
Thanksgiving Day 2012 a piece of my heart left me. My boy-not biologically, but still mine, as long as I can remember. He was an awesome vessel God created to bring us joy throught laughter and even in sickness he lifted our spirits. My son i will miss you dearly with all of my heart. Our communication required "no words." that was our way of saying, "it's ok, i know how you are feeling." John never ended a conversation whether by text or vocally that he did not say, "Another Day, Another blessing." You fought a good fight, you kept the faith-you finished your course. I love you my nephewson.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear John.
John leaves those behind better for knowing him,
Inspired by his dignity and courage,
and determined to do better in this life.
May he now be at peace and may those left who knew
Him well, and loved him, be calm and serene in respect
Of the great presence he manifested on this earth.
In Memory of John, may we all from this moment on be more loving,
more Powerful and in greater Wisdom of all that is known and in greater
Perception of What is not known.
To John Casey, a great man, husband, father, son and grandson, eternally.
John is survived by his wife Irina Casey and daughter Jazmin Casey; his mother Alberta Casey, stepfather Lester Weems, father Johnnie Lynn Casey and wife Wendy Casey, sisters Nicole Fontain, Jessica Casey, Sarah Massey and Dominique Casey, as well as sister in law Maria Toshkova; grandfather, Rev. Thomas R. Murray, Sr., a host of aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews and cousins all of whom he loved dearly.

She has participated in many other organizations and held many other positions, but never failed to give God the Glory.
No matter where she went, she always left her marked. Mrs. Murray impacted the community, her family, her friends and her church with her loving spirit. She was the epitome of a “a fine Christian woman”, showing virtue, resilience, longsuffering, steadfastness, humility, perseverance, faithfulness and more. She has been an asset to anything she touched and anyone that she came in contact with. Her life has revolved around service to others. She has been a sounding board for those in need of an ear; a shoulder for those shedding tears; a voice of reason for those in trying situations-a phenomenal/virtuous/Titus 2 woman.
