James 'Jim' Casey

Sadly passed away on 22nd August 2020 aged 54 years.

Beloved son, brother and uncle who will be missed more than words can say.

Due to the current coronavirus guidelines we appreciate that many of Jim's friends may not be able to attend the service in person, therefore the family have arranged an online weblink. If you wish to view the service online please email angehughes1@hotmail.com or zarina_casey@hotmail.com for login details.

Jim has requested that donations are made rather than flowers so if you would like to make a donation please use the link above. The money will go towards the Sparklers group Jim was very proud to volunteer at and allowing it to continue to support the siblings of the children at Keech Hospice.

Zarina Casey donated £260 in memory of James

After putting on a wonderful memorial cricket game for Jim, a Long serving member of the club, Caddington Cricket Club raised £260 through fees and donations. They kindly requested it be donated to Jim’s favourite charity, Sparklers at Keech Hospice. Glad this will be an annual event.

Jim, I'll focus on the Luton times we shared. 'The' Valois goal, winning the league in '05, away at Everton in the cup, angry fat Welsh bloke, away at the scum with Pat, Perugia in the Anglo Italian cup in 95, winning at Palace and Leicester when we came up, late winners at home vs Hull by Brko and away at Bournemouth by Enoch. Great times. I'll always remember being terrified by "If you get onions in my burger, I'll punch you in the face". What are older brothers for? I'll always miss you and love you mate. PS, sorry for elbowing you in the head during the celebrations of the Brko goal vs Hull in '05!

I’ve pretty much known Jim all of my life
I’m best mates with his sister, aka my wife!
So many memories were made in Red Rails
I’m just not sure I’m allowed to tell the tales!

It wasn’t until I was much older that I kinda got to know him
There was a bit of an age gap and he didn’t drink gin
But as Ange and I grew ‘up’, I got to know him more
This man would not care if you were rich or poor

Some people just have a genuine heart that never ever fades
And Jim had this in absolute spades
He gave loads of himself in caring for others
Credit to his Mum..who’s the Mum of all Mothers!!

My greatest memory of Jim was Thailand ninety ninety nine
Trust me, that holiday deserves its very own rhyme!
There are many stories I could tell but I’ll keep this one short
Just 4 words really, “Jim, where’s your passport??!!”!

My final words really are that he should be an inspiration to us all
And we should all do good, whether it be big or small
My heart goes out to Winnie, Tommy, Ange and Ween
Sending all our love, Erin, Con and Teen. xxxxxxxxxxx

We've lost a good man from an increasingly bad world. Going to miss our little chats whenever we bumped into each other. Much love to the rest of the family.

Jim, as a friend and team mate for 15 years I'll miss not only sharing a pitch with you, but your helpful advise and witty sense of humour. Everyone at Caddington CC will miss you.. Me & my wife especially. Rip mate.. Keep bowling those dot balls!

I met Jim through volunteering as a poolside assistant 5 years ago. He guided me methodically in my duties and later persuaded me to train as a lifeguard. We covered absolutely all topics easily picking up where we had ceased the week before. He was quite private but eventually chatted about family. He made me chuckle as he'd remark that "he did as he was told when his sister organised a family get together" smiling to himself at the same time. I was sad to hear he had left Keech and only bumped into him a few times after. His death is too soon. I'll imagine him cycling to a cricket ground and playing the game he loved where it will be forever perfect.

Although I didn't personally meet Jim I have heard so many amazing stories of him from Lesley and feel like I knew him. I love hearing stories from Sparklers. He will be missed by so many people. Shine bright Jim.
