Obituary for Mr. Paul Francis Casey

February 26, 1970 - February 16, 2021
North Royalton, Ohio | Age 50

Loving Husband, Father, Son, Brother, Uncle, Son in law, Brother in law and Friend


Paul Francis Casey, 50, passed to his eternal rest surrounded by family at his North Royalton home on February 16, 2021.

Paul was born on February 26, 1970 in Denville, New Jersey and grew up in nearby Sparta. He attended Sparta High School as a three-sport athlete (football, wrestling, and track) and graduated in 1988 to wrestle for Ohio University, securing two Mid-American Conference Championship wins in 1992 and 1993. He graduated in 1993 with a Bachelor of Arts & Sciences in a Specialized Study of Health Promotion.

From OU, he followed the love of his life, Marina, to Northeast Ohio, married in 1997, and settled in North Royalton, Ohio. In the coming years, they welcomed Matthew and Claire into the world.

He went on to coach wrestling all his life as an admired teacher, mentor, and role-model at the youth, high school, and collegiate levels. Needless to say, wrestling was his passion, second only to his Catholic faith and his beloved family and friends.

Among his numerous occupations, he was skilled in carpentry and always had an eye for potential with respect to properties, or anything for that matter, in need of his craftmanship.

He was eminently knowledgeable in scripture and the Catholic faith. His interests included hiking, kayaking, skiing, fishing, politics, numismatics, mechanics, the natural sciences, and spending time with loved ones.

He is survived by his loving spouse, Marina Casey, son, Matthew Casey, daughter, Claire Casey, parents, Howard and Susan Casey, brother and his spouse, Mark and Beth Casey, parents-in-law Peter and Kostia Parianos, siblings-in-law Joanne (Ed) Samenuk, Chris (Jeannie) Parianos, and Maria (Tim) O'Connell, and several nieces and nephews.
