Mr. Colby “Lance” Casey

November 30, 1950 - November 13, 2015 Pheonixville, PA | Age 64 Loving Brother and Friend

Colby “Lance” Casey passed away on Friday, November 13th at Sunrise Hospice, Phoenixville, PA. Born on November 30, 1950 in Schenectady, NY, he was the son of the late G. Robert and Patricia Casey and W. Jane and William Spohn.

Lance was a long-time resident of Liberty House, Phoenixville, PA. He was a member of the Cornerstone Clubhouse where he enjoyed spending time baking and often worked as a cashier. Lance was an avid Eagles fan and rarely missed watching the games on TV with his friends. He was a talented musician and enjoyed listening to all kinds of music especially to classic rock.

Lance will be remembered by all as a gentle, kind man who never had a negative word to say about anyone.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Cornerstone Clubhouse in honor of Lance would be greatly appreciated. “Clubhouse” is a dynamic program of support and a community that offers hope and opportunity for those in mental health recovery.

Lance’s family will gather privately to honor his memory.

  1. With deepest sympathy and condolences. I’ll surely miss Lance and his smile. My fondest memory is when he would be making muffins and I would ask ” what type of muffin”? and he would just smile and say “what’s my favorite? and we would both laugh and say “blueberry.” Just to see his smile and hear him say “Hi Barbara and where you been” would brighten my day.

  2. Lance was a good guy. I also remember the cupcakes, but most of all, for Lance feeding the fish on Friday’s for the weekend. He was a soft spoken soul, with not much to say half the time. I know, he is in a better place right now, with no more pain, and no worries. Lance will be greatly missed.

  3. Lance was a great guy with a huge heart. Loved camping and fishing. Some of our favorite outings were fishing trips and watching football. I’ll always remember our times baking but his favorite was ginger snap cookies. Granted he’d always remind me, “still not as good as mary-jo’s”. You will surely be missed. Brett, Mary-Jo and family, my prayers of peace and comfort are with you all.
    In His Love,

  4. Lance was a quiet, nice person. I really miss him very much. He loved wheel of fortune and jeopardy. He is in a better place. Lance’s family is in my prayers.

  5. I have a snapshot in my mind of the music happening in Aunt La’s living room. Lance jamming on the organ with Uncle Bob on guitar and Uncle Al leading percussion. I can almost hear them all playing together again…

  6. We are so sorry for your loss, but so touched by your kind words. Lance is surely be missed by our entire Clubhouse community. My mornings and afternoons have not been nearly as pleasant with him not being here. He was always a gentleman, saying “please” and “thank you” daily. One of my not so funny memories was from one of the many rides home. We were heading back towards Liberty House when a car almost hit me in the driver’s side. With catching a fast glimpse, I managed to swerve right…actually running over the curb and around a telephone pole to avoid the collision! Lance sat quietly through all this. We talked about it down the road and while he was supportive of me and affirming I had probably kept us both safe from accident, I don’t believe I ever saw his eyes that wide again!
    You are all in our prayers.
