Personal / Community
Casey left Pittsburgh at age 19 to attend Princeton University. Four years later, in 1970, he left Princeton on a maroon Triumph Bonneville motorcycle with a degree in biology, a letter from the Philadelphia Eagles to try out as an NFL kicker and a totally unexpected surprise that changed his life: Number 354 (out of 365) in the 1970 Selective Service military draft lottery. He would not be drafted to go to Vietnam.
With the freedom to travel, Casey spent the next six years traveling the US, Canada, Europe, Mexico and North Africa following seasonal jobs. He worked as a ski bum in Colorado, New Hampshire, Switzerland and Austria; hired onto yachts in the Mediterranean; stage managed a downtown Pittsburgh arts festival in summers; and rebuilt a 16th century malt house in England. Back in the US, he spent a year on the road with the late blues guitar legend Roy Buchanan.
Casey and his wife Renee have two grandchildren, both of whom still marvel that their ol' grandpa was at the original Woodstock.
