Daniel Gene Casey was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and was the middle of 5 children. While in
Wisconsin he made many lifelong friends. When it came time he started his employment in a cranberry
marsh in Wisconsin. He then had the desire to explore the United States, moving to Louisiana and
working on an off shore drilling rig. The oil industry pulled him to New Mexico and then to Wyoming
where met and married Roxanne Casey. The two of them moved to Colorado to enjoy their love of
skiing and their passion for the outdoors. They settled down and had 2 daughters, Amanda and
After moving to Colorado, Dan changed industries and began work in construction, framing many of the
homes in the Highlands Ranch area. He eventually settled down in a career at Denver Health Medical
Center, where he collected many more life long friends before retirement.
When Dan wasn’t working he spent his time with the people he loved most dearly enjoying their
company and the great beauty of nature. From traveling to Canada for hunting and fishing trips to
vacationing and camping with his family and friends, his adventures rarely paused. He also picked up
competitive shooting spending many weekends staring down his scope at the bullseye he would
obliterate to win many awards. As an avid hunter and fisherman he always heard the glorious mountains
calling to him. After retirement he answered the call by relocating to his home in Divide, Colorado where
he spent his remaining years.
