Philip Casey Obituary

Philip Jeremy Casey was born on September 17, 1982, in Fort Bragg, North Carolina to the late Philip Casey, Jr. and Debra Smith Casey. He attended primary school at Aurora Elementary and Artic Light Elementary in Fort Wainwright, Alaska.

He and his family moved to Mississippi in 1994 where he attended Thomastown Attendance Center. While enrolled at TAC, he was often recognized for both academics and athletics. As an honor graduate of the class of 2000, he furthered his education as a Computer Science Major at Tougaloo College. During his matriculation at Tougaloo, Philip became a distinguished gentleman of the Gamma Upsilon Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated.

Philip enlisted with the United States Air Force in 2006, followed by an honorable discharge. He was generous, compassionate, and an avid supporter of the Dallas Cowboys.

In 2011, Philip united in marriage with Jennifer Renee and together, they raised a lovely daughter, Shelby Noelle. As a family, they enjoyed culinary arts, travel, and family game nights. He was employed as a technician at Calsonic Kansei North America until 2018.

On Friday, March 24, 2023, at 12:12 PM, Philip peacefully transitioned, surrounded by his wife, mother, siblings, cousins, and friends. He is preceded in death by his father Philip.

He leaves to cherish his memories, his wife Jennifer, daughter Shelby, mother Debra (to whom he jokingly referred to as DC), two younger sisters Vivian and Sonni, one niece Lila Grace Evans, his maternal grandmother Darnell Smith, and a host of loving family.

He will always be remembered in the lives of those he touched.
