We are so sorry for the loss of your Brian, son, brother, uncle, friend, teacher, counselor. Our family feels blessed to have known him since 1997 when Brett and our daughter, Melissa, and her one year old son, fell in love. Uncle B accepted and loved Tyler, as he did all of his nieces and nephews, and made sure they made lots of fun memories together. Please know you are in our hearts and prayers.

My condolences to the Brian Casey family. Brian was such an inspiration to me in always being present to others and so selfless, especially given his own disabilities. He was such a mentor to so many, including me, in my work with people with dementia and Alzheimers. I learned so much from this compassionate man. He will be missed by us all!

Wishing all of you comforting thoughts.

Awe, Brian I will hold in my heart forever, you gave me the most memorable dance I have ever had. Setting: 8th grade dance, in the gym at Salmon JR high, me dragging you to the dance floor, sitting on your lap, Todd Appleman standing on the back of your chair as you leaned us back on 2 wheels in your chair, swaying your chair around in a circle and back and forth. The best slow dance ever! You are a true gentleman, I am honored to have such great memories with you.

Liz, Bart, Bret and families, I'm sending each of you hugs and prayers of comfort. I have such fun memories of growing up in Salmon and all of the adventures with our family friends. One memory that comes to mind is a camping trip to Williams Lake where our dad's helped Brian get in to Dick and Virginia Bank's Honda Odyssey. Brian then got to (a little crazily:) drive around camp with such fun and abandon. Such fun family memories of those times together. Brian certainly touched the lives of everyone he met. May God comfort you all in his passing.

Liz, Bart, Bret and families. It was an honor to be Brian’s Physical Therapist for many years. I adored him. I was pregnant when Brian was ~ 14…… he rejoiced when my belly measured greater than his!!! There was one time Brian was disappointed in my behavior….. I admitted I fell asleep during the first Star Wars movie….. he said, “HOW COULD YOU FALL ASLEEP????” I responded, “Brian, I was just so tired.” He forgave me, but he could just never understand. 😅 I will always miss him. Best wishes to all of you. With affection. Nan

While I hadn't talked with Brian for several years we kept up on FB and shared a love of hard rock music. One of my fondest college memories is banging our heads together at the Theta Chi house during a homecoming party his freshman year! I will always cherish this memory. All my love and prayers go out to his family. How lucky you were to have him in your lives.

Bart, Anne Marie and all the Casey Family, Brian became like family to us when he stayed at the hotel all those months. We all fell in love with his beautiful spirit. I often saw him in nursing homes and he would always have that million dollar smile. He would brag on about my grandchildren to the residents. I witnessed his pure kindness and tender heart many times. I loved being around him. He was always so cheerful and made you happy you ran into him. God Bless you all, and be gentle with yourselves. With much love and prayers.

I can't begin to say enough about how much Uncle Brian meant to our family. His laughter, jokes, positivie attitude, selflessness and advice will be missed. Our family will always hold a special place in our hearts for him. We have chosen to honor Uncle B by reminiscing all of the "funny" times we had with him. It has made us laugh, cry, and brought back many great memories. He will be missed and always remember as a great person. Bart and Ann Marie, we have always considered ourselves to be part of the Casey family. Our constant thoughts and prayers are with you. We love you.

Brian was one of my best friends. When I saw him several weeks ago he told me how grateful he was for our friendship, through tears. I could tell how much pain he was, but he barely complained- as usual he asked about me. He was a selfless, positive, grateful soul. I wrote an article on him in the Sandpoint Reader years ago and mentioned how medicinal his hugs were. I will miss him so much.
