John "Jack" Carl Casey, 86 OCEANSIDE -- John "Jack" Casey passed away on September 1, 2011 at the age of 86 as a result of complications from a fall. Jack was born in Willits, California on October 30, 1924 and is survived by his wife of 62 years, Genevieve "Genny" Casey; his daughter, Sue Casey Bernard; sons, John Casey Jr., and Mark Alan Casey; and four grandchildren, Dustin Bernard, Josh Bernard, Jill Casey Tibbetts and Ashley Nicole Casey. Jack served in the United States Air Force for 27 years and retired as a Col. in 1970. He flew a P51 in WWII and continued to be a pilot for the Air Force until the early 1960's. He got his bachelor's degree from Perdue University and his master's degree from Cal Tech in Pasadena CA and later taught Aeronautical Engineering at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs. He retired to Del Mar, California and returned to college at Cal Western Law School at the age of 46 to fulfill a lifelong dream to become an attorney. He and Genny moved to Oceanside in 1975 where he continued to practice law and in 1978 he was elected to the Oceanside City Council where he served a 4-year term. In 1982, he and Genny moved to Genny's hometown of Thomasville Georgia where he lived out the remainder of his life. His final request was to be buried in his beloved San Diego at Fort Rosecrans. He led a full life and rarely went a day without a smile and never met a stranger. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m., Tuesday, November 1, 2011, at Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery, Cabrillo Memorial Drive, San Diego, Calif. 92166.
