Kelly M. Casey, 75, of South Padre Island, TX went to heaven on January 17, 2016 to be with many loved ones.

Kelly was born March 6, 1940, in Dallas. He rode his bicycle from Grapevine, Texas to South Padre Island, making many stops.

His first stop was Port Isabel where he got a room and a job as bartender for Bud Franke at the Yacht Club. He crossed the bridge to the island and bartended at Las Ventanas, Amberjack's, and ran Jake's for 15 years. Kelly then bought the Irish Pub and loved bartending another 15 years. He sold the Irish Pub, and he and Karen retired to Aquismon, Mexico, a place he truly loved, to fulfill his life's dream of retirement and travels. In 2007, they returned to the island and Kelly returned to his passion as bartender with his closest friends, once again, Jake and Bookie. Eight years later and still loving it! Kelly was dignified in everything he did, always living his life by the Golden Rule.

He is preceded in death by his parents: Mitchell and Sally Doss Casey and brother, Terry Casey.

He is survived by his loving wife, Karen, who always thought of him as "my treasure and my pleasure.” three sons: Scot Casey, Ben Bays, Sean Loyless; three daughters: Shannon Casey, Selena Loyless, Jocelyn Ceriello; two grandchildren: Lucy and Ronan Langenkamp.

Memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, January 22, 2016 at Chapel by the Sea on South Padre Island, TX.
