Obituary: David Casebeer

Obituary

David A. Casebeer passed peacefully on February 28, 2021 in Elk Grove, California. David was born in Royal Oak, Michigan on June 23, 1955. He graduated with a degree in psychology from the University of Michigan.

As a young boy of 8, while traveling across country with his family he fell in love with California and knew he wanted to live there someday. After college he set out for California working successfully in various sales industry jobs in the San Francisco and Sacramento areas.

He lived in Mount Shasta from 2003 to 2019. He loved the mountain and cared deeply about its pristine environment. Over the years he worked with various environmental groups to protect it. He was especially concerned about climate engineering and its impact upon our forests and local ecosystems. He volunteered and worked with citizen groups, such as geoengineeringwatch.org, which is a Redding area nonprofit organization dedicated to stopping these climate disrupting programs. He was not afraid to speak up on such controversial issues.

His friends and family will remember him for his generosity of spirit, his passion for life, his gourmet cooking, his love for gardening, animals and nature. He often talked about the wonderful times he spent with his grandfather on his farm in Indiana. And how these visits influenced his respect for organic farming and leaving the land sustainable for future generations.

David was preceded in death by his parents, Harry and Marjorie Casebeer. He was survived by his daughter, Annie Casebeer, his brother, Ken Casebeer and sister Ann Casebeer, along with other beloved family members. He will be missed.
