Resided in Anchorage, Alaska


Riley T Casey, age 63, passed away on Aug. 6, 2018, at Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage, Alaska, surrounded by people who loved him. Riley was born on Dec. 24, 1954, in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. He was the son of the late Lawrence and Jean (Devoe) Casey of Schuylerville, N.Y.
Rite of Committal will follow next year at the Gerald B.H. Solomon Saratoga National Cemetery in Schuylerville, N. Y.
Riley's love of fishing and the great outdoors brought him to Alaska in 1981 and kept him there until his final days. Riley loved to fish the Battenkill in New York and Anchor River in Alaska. Beyond fishing Riley was an amazing mechanic and could fix just about anything broken that was put in front of him. Anybody that knew him most likely had Riley help with some form of mechanical repair at one time or another. He will be greatly missed.
He is survived by his sons, Joseph Casey of Anchorage, Alaska, and Riley (Katie) Casey of Ellisville, Mo; brothers, Larry (Debbie) Casey of Eagle River, Alaska, David (Barb) Casey of Mechanicville, N.Y.; sisters, Linda (Jim) Still of Kingston, N.Y., Megan (Roger) Norton of Bloomingbury, N.Y., and Nancy Casey of Troy, N.Y.; ex-wife, Diana Casey; and a special mention for his "buddies," Louis Duffy and Heaven McAllister.
The family would like to thank the entire staff at Providence Alaska Medical Center for the compassionate care and support provided.
