Former Trumbull Town Councilman Brian Casey, who worked as Trumbull Police Department’s Crime Analysis Specialist, died Tuesday night, said Police Chief Thomas Kiely.
Here is a copy of his obituary.
Before Casey died, First Selectman Tim Herbst issued a proclamation to him, making Aug. 10, 2012 “Brian M. Casey Day.”
Here it is:
WHEREAS, Brian Michael Casey was born on February 5, 1958, in Bridgeport, Connecticut to Edward and Josephine Casey. Brian’s father was a Lieutenant in the Bridgeport Police Department. It was from Brian’s humble beginnings and through the dedicated community service of his family and his parents that Brian learned the important value of public service and giving back to your community; and,
WHEREAS, Brian graduated from St. Theresa’s Grammar School in Trumbull and Notre Dame Catholic High School in Fairfield. He then continued his education at the University of New Haven, earning a B.S.in electrical engineering in 1981. After graduating from college, Brian married his wife Elizabeth and had two daughters, Meghan and Catherine; and,
WHEREAS, Brian was elected to the Trumbull Town Council in 1991, where he served six terms, before stepping down in 2003. During his time on the Trumbull Town Council, Brian took great pride in serving his fellow citizens and also earned a reputation for being a bipartisan legislator, always willing to reach across the aisle for the well-being of the Town of Trumbull; and,
WHEREAS, During Brian’s career he has worked with Fortune 500 companies, small entrepreneurial businesses and most recently with the Town of Trumbull. During his successful career in business, Brian has been privileged to travel to nearly all 50 states and also to Europe, meeting so many different people. But despite this experience, Brian will tell you that the most rewarding job he ever held was working with the hard working men and women of the Trumbull Police Department, where he has been a Crime Analysis Specialist since 2004. Through his hard work and good deeds, Brian has led a technology transformation of the Trumbull Police Department, implementing many new systems and networks, saving the Town significant amounts of money, all the while assisting the Town in managing our emergency response to some of the worst weather related emergencies our community has seen in the last century; and,
WHEREAS, Brian M. Casey is a consummate professional, who has throughout his entire lifetime placed the well-being of others as one of his highest priorities. All of us that have known Brian throughout the years consider it one of life’s greatest privileges to be able to call him our friend. Brian Casey represents all that is good in our Town and the Town of Trumbull is a better place to live, work and raise a family because of his dedicated service. If more people in this world were like Brian Casey, the world would be a much better place; and,
NOW THEREFORE I, Timothy M. Herbst, by virtue of the authority vested in me as First Selectman of the Town of Trumbull, Connecticut do hereby proclaim August 10, 2012 as, Brian M. Casey Day
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the Town of Trumbull to be affixed on the 10th day of August, 2012.
Timothy M. Herbst
