Obituary

Wesley Lewis Case, 96, of Simsbury, passed away on Wednesday, December 26, 2018. A lifelong resident of Simsbury, Wesley was born September 5,1922 to the late Lewis Wesley Case and Mary McGill Case McClure.

Wesley learned fly fishing and hunting from his father; interests which lasted him his whole life. His hunting skills served him well when he joined the Marines Corps in WWII and was quickly identified as an expert marksman and assigned to teach recruits to shoot. Wesley served in the Philippines and China before the war ended. While in the Marines, he met his wife, the late Dorothy Cassel Case.

After the war, Wesley joined the fledgling Simsbury Volunteer Fire Company and rose to the rank of 1st Assistant Chief before retiring in 1980. Wesley was also a very active member in Simsbury’s America Legion Post 84, VFW Post 1926, and the Masons.

Wesley had a varied work life. After many years as a carpenter, he helped install the sewers in Simsbury, worked at the sewer plant, became a Health Inspector in Simsbury, and finally retired in 1996 (at age 74) from the Farmington Valley Health Department as a Registered Sanitarian.

With his love of the outdoors, Wesley was a life-long bee keeper, a charter member of the Simsbury Fish & Game Club (at age 16), and a member of Kingdom Game Club. He was an avid and successful hunter well into his 90s. He was also an avid fan of UConn Women’s Basketball,

Wesley’s wife of almost 70 years, Dorothy Cassel Case, died 5 years ago. Wesley is survived by his children Barbara Keehbauch (Thomas) of Griffin, GA, Lewis Case (Susan) of Framingham, MA, and Richard Case (Marilyn) of Cohoes, NY, and two grandsons, Zachary Case (Kim) and Nathaniel Case, and his cousins Suzanne Mittica of Concord, CA, Roanne LeClair of Simsbury, plus his best friend and surrogate son Michael Palmer of Simsbury, and their families.

Family and friends may call at the Vincent Funeral Home, 880 Hopmeadow Street in Simsbury on Wednesday, January 2nd from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Funeral service will be held at the funeral home on Thursday, January 3rd at 11:00 AM. Stories from Wesley’s life will be welcomed at the service. Burial will follow in the Simsbury Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to St. Jude Hospital, Shriners Hospital, or Disabled American Veterans. Please visit Wesley’s "Book of Memories" at www.vincentfuneralhome.com for online condolences.

Barbara, I'm so sorry I didnt know about your dad's death until after the wake. While I worked at St. Bernard's in Tariffville your dad often came by to inspect the kitchen in the church hall. Prayers and thoughts go out to you and your family.

I met Wesley as a new member of Legion Post 84, he had a lasting impression on me with his frankness, and also things that he said to me early as a Legionnaire has made me carry on the traditions of the Legion that Wesley would have told you he had been a part of even before the war. Wesley you will be missed.

Wesley you will be missed. I remember during the mid 80's when I worked for Simscroft you coming onto my job site to inspect a septic system install and sharing one of your many stories. They were all very interesting. May you RIP.

I met Mr Case about 5 years ago.One wintery cold morning I was driving my then 4 yo son to his morning preschool ,when out of the corner of my eye I saw what appeared to be a man lying in the snow next to his car,at the end of his driveway. I thought I better turn around and check it out.Mr Case had fallen as he was getting his mail and had been there for about 20 minutes in the snow, his sweet wife waiting for him in the running car.I picked him up and then another car stopped.We got the car pulled up and the Cases' into their house.We had a nice chat and learned of his bees and honey for sale.From then on he was the "honey man" to us and he invited back.My son and I visited many times,bringing home made bread in trade for visits to the bee houses.He always told me how handsome my son was and always up for a chat about his interesting and storied past in town.We enjoyed our chats and I always left amazed how sharp his mind was and his body active.Recently I noticed his Honey For Sale sign was gone and I felt overdue for a stop in. I never did get that last chat and am sorry for that as I know he still had much to give this neighbor and friend.
My condolences to his family.
