March 7, 1985 ~ February 26, 2023 (age 37)
It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Casey Lee on Sunday, February 26, 2023.
He leaves his parents Steve and Colleen, his sister Meghan and his brother-in-law Kyle Ostermann to cherish his memory.
He will be lovingly missed by his uncles, aunts, cousins, and many friends.
Casey was predeceased by his grandparents, Bob and Thelma Lee, and Roman and Margaret Engele, as well as his Aunts Carol Brausen, Sharon Packman, and his Uncle Allan.
Casey was a Saskatchewan boy born in Kindersley and grew up on the family farm in the area. It is here his love of sports began. Hockey, golf, baseball, and speed swimming to name a few. His first love was hockey in which he was very skilled and forged many friendships throughout the many levels he played. He logged many miles on team buses all over North America. He talked often of the many people and coaches who helped him along the way. He remembered where he came from and remained very close with his hometown friends.
It was this team focus that brought Casey to his next step with a career choice as a transmission power lineman. He began working for SaskPower and in 2018 moved to Calgary to continue working for AltaLink for the remainder of his life.
He enjoyed his work as a team member on a crew as well as being in the great outdoors in both provinces. He was always on the road logging many hours of travel.
As a person, Casey was a rather quiet man. He was low-key with an engaging smile and hearty laugh. He carried with him a hard work ethic.
He had many interests including NFL football, watching documentaries, reading, and casinos. He lived his nearly 38 years to the fullest.
Casey, you were one of a kind and will be dearly missed by all who knew you.
There will be a celebration of Casey’s life held on March 8 at 1 pm at South Calgary Funeral Centre (12700 Macleod Trail S, Calgary).
