He is survived by his wife Anne and beloved children Clara and Samuel (Nicole), as well as his grandson Teddy. David received his BA in Music from Bard College in Annandale-on-Hudson, NY. For many years, David played music, bartended and worked as a carpenter in the Hudson Valley near Bard where he met Anne, sharing many life-long friends from the Bard community. After marrying in 1985, he and Anne moved to City Island, where they lived together for 32 years. David worked as a carpenter, then taught carpentry in the NY Dept of Ed to his “School to Work” students for 15 years. He received his Master’s in Math Education from Lehman College, teaching GED math for another 12 years before retiring in 2014. David coached Little League, girls’ softball and CYO high school basketball. He helped to build the PS 175 playground and enjoyed the company of many friends within the City Island community. He was a passionate musician, playing jazz saxophone along with many other instruments, and was also an avid surfer. He loved his time on the ocean at the Jersey Shore, Rockaway, Long Beach and Montauk.

Casey, Jr. (Christine); Elizabeth Casey; the late Brian Casey; the late Annie Casey (Peter McCue); and Janet Casey, all of Massachusetts.
