Wesley Lewis Case, 96, of Simsbury, passed away on Wednesday, December 26, 2018. A lifelong resident of Simsbury, Wesley was born September 5,1922 to the late Lewis Wesley Case and Mary McGill Case McClure.

Wesley learned fly fishing and hunting from his father; interests which lasted him his whole life.

Wesley served in the Philippines and China before the war ended. While in the Marines, he met his wife, the late Dorothy Cassel Case.

After the war, Wesley joined the fledgling Simsbury Volunteer Fire Company and rose to the rank of 1st Assistant Chief before retiring in 1980. Wesley was also a very active member in Simsbury's America Legion Post 84, VFW Post 1926, and the Masons.

Wesley had a varied work life. After many years as a carpenter, he helped install the sewers in Simsbury, worked at the sewer plant, became a Health Inspector in Simsbury, and finally retired in 1996 (at age 74) from the Farmington Valley Health Department as a Registered Sanitarian.

With his love of the outdoors, Wesley was a life-long bee keeper, a charter member of the Simsbury Fish & Game Club (at age 16), and a member of Kingdom Game Club. He was an avid and successful hunter well into his 90s. He was also an avid fan of UConn Women's Basketball,

Wesley's wife of almost 70 years, Dorothy Cassel Case, died 5 years ago. Wesley is survived by his children Barbara Keehbauch (Thomas) of Griffin, GA, Lewis Case (Susan) of Framingham, MA, and Richard Case (Marilyn) of Cohoes, NY, and two grandsons, Zachary Case (Kim) and Nathaniel Case, and his cousins Suzanne Mittica of Concord, CA, Roanne LeClair of Simsbury, plus his best friend and surrogate son Michael Palmer of Simsbury, and their families.

Family and friends may call at the Vincent Funeral Home, 880 Hopmeadow Street in Simsbury on Wednesday, January 2nd from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Funeral service will be held at the funeral home on Thursday, January 3rd at 11:00 AM. Stories from Wesley's life will be welcomed at the service. Burial will follow in the Simsbury Cemetery.

Homer David Case

b. 12 February 1931, d. 10 February 2019
     Homer David Case was born on 12 February 1931. He was the son of Lenson Henry Case and Ella Betsy Bacon. Homer David Case died on 10 February 2019 at Plainville, Hartford Co., CT, at age 87.

Homer David Case, 87, of Plainville, CT, husband of Pauline and son of Lenson H. and Ella Betsey Case, passed away in easy conversation with one of his loving sons on February 10, 2019, two days before his 88th birthday. Always with a song in his heart, he approached life with compassion for others and generosity of spirit, demonstrating that doing for others is the greatest reward we can give to ourselves.

Homer is survived by his children, Gary (Susan) Case, Paul (Debra) Case, Lee (Edward) Drag, Scott Case, daughter-in-law, Collette; his grandchildren Shannon (Tim) Nowak, Gregory (Regan) Case, Jessica (Myles) Angell, Kelly (Joshua) Fowler, Joshua (Meghan) Case, Ronald Case Jr, Amanda Case, Stephanie (Kyle) Turner, Jonathan Case; his great grandchildren David Nowak, Roman and Xander Case, Rory and Elli Angell, Lyla, Paul and Charlotte Fowler, Clark Case, and Parker Eveleth and Aubree Bohannon. He is also survived by his brothers Harlan Case, Richard (Evelyn) Case, sisters-in-law Mary and Dorothy Case, and several nieces and nephews.

Homer was predeceased by his beloved wife of 62 years, Pauline (Johnson) Case, to whom he devoted himself so compassionately, his son Ronald Case Sr., his brothers Howard Case, Clarence Case, Chester Case, Edward Case, and his sisters Olive San Juan and Ella Betsey Ross.

Though he was a gentle giant, it wasn’t his height or hands, but his heart that was the biggest part of him. When his family grew through marriage, he welcomed each new family member as someone he had been waiting for all along, making each feel immediately welcome, at home, at ease, and loved.

Homer retired from GE in 1988, splitting his residence between Plainville, CT and Otis, MA. Though he tried out the snowbird lifestyle for a couple of winters, he found that being nearer to his family was worth the winter weather. Ultimately, he watched the calendar for spring, racing to be first at the lake for the season. It is in Otis where he found the most pleasure in his retirement, building clocks, playing cards with friends and family, picking fresh fruit to make his jam, doctoring cookie recipes, singing karaoke to standing ovations, cruising around the lake in the evening, driving to the fields to watch the deer come out at dusk, mastering Peggle, and cherishing his time with friends and family in the life he built with them. Homer proved the simple pleasures in life add up to profound joy.

He was so proud of his family, and this was ever-evident in his smiling eyes when his daughter and sons approached for a hug, when he listened to Gregory’s music, when he proudly displayed Shannon’s paintings, when he danced with one of his girls at her wedding, or when he applauded one of his grandchildren’s or great-grandchildren’s achievements -- a stage play, a preschool graduation, or even the completion of a puzzle. His family was his world.

He lived by the lyrics of Ol’ Blue Eyes, singing his way through everything, whether by serenading “his girl” The Way You Look Tonight or simply reminding us all that “And more, much more than this, I did it my way.” So, surely whenever we hear Frankie belt, “These little town blues,” we won’t hear Sinatra’s voice, but Homer’s crooning in unison. “In other words,” Homer, “[we] love you.”

His family will receive friends at the Bailey Funeral Home, 48 Broad St., Plainville on Saturday, February 16 from 4 to 6PM. In honor of his giving heart, donations in memorial can be made to the Plainville Community Food Pantry, http://plainvillefoodpantry.org. The family encourages all to wear a splash of red in remembrance of Homer, because had you asked his favorite color, he would have declared, “I like red no matter what color it is.”.
