Life Tribute – Casey Michael Shirley

Casey Michael Shirley

                Casey Michael Shirley, 43, of Janesville, returned to his Heavenly home April 17, 2021 as he slept in his home after courageously battling liver disease for many years.

Casey was born to Bert and Regina Shirley on Sept. 7, 1977 in Alturas.

Casey was one of the kindest and most loving persons to be found on this earth. He was fiercely loyal to family and friends and found many ways to express these attributes.

Casey attended Canby Elementary School in Canby, California until he was 9 years old. During his time there he developed a special attachment to his Nana, his great grandma. He missed her dearly after she passed. Casey then moved with this family to Susanville. He attended McKinley Elementary and Diamond View schools. During those years, he was active in Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. Casey graduated from Lassen High School in 1996. He attended Lassen Community College for one year. He had various employment through the years until his illness made it difficult for him to continue.

One of Casey’s greatest passions in life was music. He would often be found strumming on his guitar and singing or listening to music from his vinyl collection. When not doing that, he spent his time loving and serving others.

Casey is survived by his spouse, Nicole Hutchinson; children Emma Wright and Brooklyn Curry; mother Regina Shirley; brother Matthew Shirley; sister-in-law Amanda Shirley; niece Michaelyn Shirley; and nephew Owen Shirley. He was preceded in death by his father, Bert Shirley.

Casey, you fought the good fight! Your fight is over. Soar and fly! We love you!
