Casey Mccreesh

May 3, 1979 - May 20, 2009

Tribute

Casey was born in Vanderhoof, BC on a snowy Thursday to Rob and Donna McCreesh. He was raised in Nakusp, BC where he discovered his love for outdoor adventure. With his unending energy he enjoyed playing hockey, dirt biking, ATVing and traveling around the world. Casey’s high school years were spent in Parksville, BC, where he graduated from Ballenas High and continued his education at the University of Victoria. A career in commercial fishing allowed him to enjoy his love of the ocean. Later, his ambition and hard work paid off working on the oilrigs as a motor hand.

His passions included Conor, who lovingly cared for him; his truck, “McBain” and last but not least was “Fuzzy Peaches”. All who knew Casey will remember him as a loyal friend with integrity, concern for others and zest for life. His strength, courage and positivity during the past two years had an inspiring impact to all who knew him.

Casey is survived by his girlfriend Conor MacKinnon, parents Rob and Donna McCreesh, grandparents Ian and Eve McCreesh and Leonard and Kay Shields, brothers Shilo (Tera) McCreesh and Brendan McCreesh, sisters Shawna Day and Shari (Andy) White, nieces, nephews and many friends and family.

Thank you to the amazing staff at RP1 (Royal Jubilee Hospital) and Victoria Hospice Society and a special thank you to Dr. Egan.

A prayer service will be held May 28th at 7pm at Saint Joseph’s The Worker Roman Catholic Church – 785 Burnside Rd West, Victoria. Funeral Mass Friday, May 29, 2009 at 11am. Donations be made in Casey’s name to:

Relation: Rob's cousin

Rob, Donna and family:
How can I begin to convey my simpathy from one parent to another when our child is lost. My heart breaks for you all.
I was recently given some words of wisdom I would like to share with you, “The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.”
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
If I can do anything just say the word. My email is gam@sasktel.net
Special love to all.

Relation: Neighbours in Nakusp

We watch him leave our shore and lament as he disappears over the horizon. But, out of sight, there are those gathered on a distant shore shouting ‘Here he comes!”

Our deepest sympathies to you Rob and Donna.
