Tribute

Sean Bruce Casey passed away unexpectedly September 29, 2021, at the age of 50 years old.

Sean was born on March 24, 1971, to Linda Casey & Robert Casey In Nashua, New Hampshire. As a young man, he and his family moved to Naples, FL. After graduating from Barron Collier High School in 1989, Sean went on to try his hand at multiple trades- culinary arts, carpentry, etc.

Sean started his career in Naples, FL as a chef and worked at local favorites such as Pippins, Three Sisters and more. He was an incredible cook and would go on to continue to cook for his family until the day he passed. His meals were incredible, and he was always in charge of hosting Thanksgiving; and he never disappointed. One of his favorite dishes to make was steak au poivre and anytime we would go eat at a restaurant, we would always rate the meals against Sean’s cooking. Sean’s cooking was always better.

Sean’s passion in life was woodworking and his skills were unparalleled. After learning the trade, he went on to start his own business, Collier Custom Hardwood and Laminates that would go on to be in business for over 15+ years. He was a proud Naples native and loved to partner with other local businesses on projects, including Wood N’ Rugs and Shoreline Flooring.  Many of the beautiful homes and businesses in the SWFL area have cabinetry and flooring installed by Sean himself.

Later on in his 40s, Sean would go on to manage a property in Immokalee, FL named Coral Pines Apartments. Sean renovated the entire property and became affectionally known by his tenants as “Mr. Sean”. At the drop of a quick call, you could find Sean going out to the property to ensure all tenants were able to live in a safe and clean environment.

Sean met Christine Rhode, in 2005 and would become an incredible father to her daughter, Garrette Parsons. One of Garrette’s first memories of Sean is him bringing pizza over to the house and from that moment on, she knew her mom had picked the right one. Sean’s biggest accomplishment was the success of his daughter Garrette and he could be found always raving about how proud he was of her.

Had Sean not become a skilled craftsman, he would have been a stand-up comedian. He was full of jokes and never left a conversation with someone without making them smile or laugh. Don’t be fooled, Sean was indefinitely a hard-headed “Irish man” at times, but he would be the first person to provide a helping hand to someone in need.

Sean also had a passion for helping animals and ensured that his household was always filled with furry family members. He was notorious for showing up at home with any animal who needed help (abandoned dogs, pet rats, bunnies, etc.). Sean was the greatest dog dad to his pack of three yellow Labradors: Loo Loo, Bella and Rocco and grand-paw to Lola and Beau. Sean bought a boat simply to be able to take the pack to Bonita Dog Beach, affectionally named the S.S. Labrador.  When he wasn’t working, Sean could be found out on the water with the dogs, spending time with Christine and Garrette, cooking up a new dish, going to dinner with friends and family and working on a new project.

Sean was preceded in death by his beloved mother Linda Casey, brother Robert Cleveland and furry daughter Bella. Sean is survived by his soulmate Christine, daughter Garrette, his brother Brian Beach and furry pack consisting of Loo Loo, Rocco, Beau and Lola.

Sean was loved and admired by so many, and his loss will be very evident in many people’s lives. Sean had so much to look forward to, especially finally being able to reap the fruits of his labor after working his whole life. Sean is now in Heaven with his family and throwing ball with Bella.

A celebration of life will take place on November 20th. 2021 from 3pm-7pm at 4884 Esplanade Street, Bonita Springs, FL. Our family requests if you join the celebration of life to refrain from wearing black and opting to wear tropical prints/colors.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Sean B. Casey Scholarship Fund, to ensure Sean’s legacy continues to live on. A scholarship fund has been set up through the Collier County Foundation by his family to aid local high school graduates in their pursuit of trade school.
