 I can't believe that no one has yet posted a comment about Pat Casey -- he was the ultimate party animal, and he was voted "Best Personality" in his senior year.

I remember drinking beers with Pat in the Dillenges's basement/garage room with Larry, his brother, Van Senn, Frank Cava, etc.  In fact, I remember (barely) drinking beers with Pat at a lot of different places.  He was a crack up, a very funny wit, and fun to be around, despite his rough edges.

After I left CSM for Berkeley, I lost track of Pat.  I am sorry that he won't be there at the reunion this year.  We'll miss you Pat.

When I moved from San Francisco to Millbrae I joined the little league baseball program sponsored by the Millbrae Lions Club.  I really didn't know anyone until I met Pat at the old clubhouse behind Taylor and below Highlands (it may have been part of the Rec Center).  He was the epitome of a baseball player and animal at that time...loved baseball in every way!  We got to be good friends in those early years (1964-66) and although we kind of went our separate ways, we stayed friends through school until graduation.  We would run into one another every once in a while and were usually able to catch up.  After moving to the Sacramento area in 1989, I pretty much lost touch with him.  A good friend, team player, and person, I can still see him behind the plate talking and creating havoc with the batters while they tried to hit the ball.  Pat was a genuinely nice guy, and was happy to take guys like me under his wing. He will surely be missed by all. 

For my friend,

Bob Castelli
