Patrick (Pete) George Casey passed peacefully on November 13, 2022, surrounded by his loving wife and family after a long battle with cancer. Pete was born in Dublin, Ireland on April 26, 1945, to Mary and Maurice Casey. He was the second youngest of nine children. His parents, James Casey, Marie McCarrick, and Christopher Casey preceded him in death.

He is survived by Noel Casey, John Casey, Francis Casey, Joe Casey, Thomas Casey, and many nieces and nephews from both sides of the family.
Pete left Ireland and lived in London as a young man. It is there he converted to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and met Eileen Dredge. Eileen was serving a mission at the time, and the two became engaged. Pete followed Eileen back to Idaho, where they were sealed for time and all eternity in the Idaho Falls Temple on May 12, 1972. Shortly after, they moved to Utah where they spent the majority of their time and had five children. The twins, Patty (JP Lingwall) and Heather (Scott Casey-Ockerman), Shawnell (deceased), Ian (Mackenzie) and Sean (Jen). His greatest delight are his grandkids- Riley and Sharon Thompson, Everitt, Kate, and Bea Lingwall, Collin Casey, and Jack, Harrison, James, and Lincoln Casey.

Pete spent his professional life in the lighting industry where he had many friends and colleagues. He held numerous callings in his church that allowed him to serve his community. He had a generous and kind heart. He was always willing to help.

Family and Friends can gather at the Larkin Mortuary, 260 E. South Temple, Sunday November 27th from 6-8pm. A Memorial Service will be held at the Waterloo Ward Chapel, 1623 S. 500 E. Monday November 28th at 11:00 am.

Oh, Eileen, my heart is breaking for you, at the passing of your dearest husband and friend. Such a great guy, always smiling, and cheerful. I would not have known such heartfelt sympathy if I had not been there. Sometimes it feels like half of you is gone, and yet you would not want him lingering to suffer when you know that there is a God, and a beautiful space for him to live until you meet again.
Much love,
Elaine Smith

I treasure the day I spent with him & Eileen In Chicago when we bumped into each other so many mikes from home. Thinking of you all. 💕💚

You are thought of most caring

Bro Casey was the counselor in our ward. He was always so kind and friendly. I remember him surprising my kids and I one year on Christmas Eve with a cookie kit for them to decorate. I am a single mom and I was so busy trying to get ready for Christmas that cookie making had not happened that year. The relief that little act of random kindness brought to our Christmas will never be forgotten. He truly must have been sent by angels. I know he was dealing with some health challenges the last few years, I hope he is now able to rest in love and peace. My condolences go out to his family. Patrick Casey was a good man!

Eileen...we never saw your husband without a smile, a cheerful word, and heartfelt greeting. He was a people magnetic because he simply exuded "good vibes". So sorry he is gone from our midst, and especially that you will be without him. Thinking of you, and praying Heavenly Father's comforting spirit will sustain you.

- John and Fay Borsos

Many condolences to Eileen and the entire Casey and Lingwall families. Our Heavenly Father will be watching over you at this difficult time.

I just recently learned of Pete's passing. I just wanted to express my love and condolences. He was one of my Boy Scout leaders and he always made me feel loved and appreciated. I was once just an "assistant" leader as a youth, but he often expressed a thank you for our efforts as boys, by name, after we did some activity or service.
