Robert Casey, 80

Nov 14, 2022

Robert John Casey died in his home in Carver, MA, on Nov. 7, 2022 after a courageous and hard-fought battle with cancer. He was 80 years old. Robert was born in Brockton, Ma., the son of the late Mildred A. (Burke) and Edward L. Casey.

Robert was a resident of Wareham for 30 years before retiring to Carver for the last 22 years. He graduated from Rockland High School with the Class of 1959. He graduated from Bridgewater State College in 1964 with a Bachelor’s degree in History and in 1966 he earned his Master’s degree in Counseling. He then attended Boston University working towards his CAGS (Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study) to further his counseling proficiency. As Director of Guidance for the Wareham High School he was dedicated to his students and worked tirelessly throughout his 30 year career. Robert was instrumental in implementing the Adult Education Program at WHS, which positively impacted many students, and adults in the Wareham community as well as the surrounding area.

Robert ran 10 Boston Marathons as well as many other road races throughout the area. He was also an avid golfer and very proud of achieving a hole in one! Robert was one of the founding organizers of the Leaf Peeper golf tournament at Little Harbor Country Club.

He enjoyed the camaraderie of many different social circles including the Cape and Island Guidance Association and members of the college admissions community throughout the country.

Robert’s fondest place to be was always with his family. He could be counted on to cheer for his kids and grandkids from the sidelines of a cross country meet, a baseball, football, or basketball game, a soccer field, or ballet and cello recitals.
