CASEY, Timothy F. - Passed away peacefully on December 2, 2005 after a short illness. Tim was born in Sacramento, CA on December 3, 1921 to James and Catherine Casey. He was four years old when he moved to the Sunset District of San Francisco with his parents, brother, Bill, and sisters, Mary (Lewis) and Catherine (O'Connell). He attended St. Anne's Grammar School and Sacred Heart High School. He joined the Navy at the onset of WWII and was attached to the 4th Marine Division, where he served in the invasion of Saipan and Iwo Jima.
