Obituary

Reuben L. Casey, a resident of San Clemente, CA, died Tuesday, November
13 of heart disease. Reuben was born in Healing Springs, Arkansas on
April 9, 1927, to Dewitt H. Casey and Elma Shook Casey, and grew up in
Downey, CA. After serving in the U. S. Navy during 1945/46, he married
Mary Lou Poole in January, 1947. They raised a family of four children
in Garden Grove, CA before moving to San Clemente.

Reuben was a pioneer in the drywall business, and helped found the
Southern California Drywall Contractors Association. He loved to build,
and for over six decades he constructed homes and business buildings in
Orange County. He and Mary Lou were curious, adventurous world
travelers, and he kept that same curiosity and engagement with the world
for his entire 91 years.

Reuben was an active Rotarian, and loved serving his community. A strong
supporter of the Boy Scouts of America, he gave generously to the Orange
County Council, and was instrumental in the establishment of the Irvine
Ranch Outdoor Education Center. He also donated a campus to the Ozarks
Technical College in Lebanon, Missouri.

He is survived by his daughter Karen Miller (Lee), and by his sons
Douglas Casey and Steven Casey (Mary). He was predeceased by his wife
Mary Lou and by his son Martin Casey. Reuben was a beloved grandfather
to Jason Miller (Lisa), Katelin Hobson (Stephen), Matthew Miller
(Elizabeth), Erin Casey, Stephanie Parks (Greg), and Jesse Casey. He
took great delight in his twelve great grandchildren.

Family and friends are invited to a memorial service on Monday, November
19 at 2:00 in the open amphitheater at the Irvine Ranch Outdoor
Education Center, 2 Irvine Park Road, Orange, CA. Casual dress and
comfortable shoes are suggested. In lieu of flowers, the family
suggests donations to the Boy Scouts of America, Orange County Council,
or to Family Assistance Ministries in San Clemente.
