Casey was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba but grew up in Sherwood Park, AB. After graduating from NAIT, Casey began his Landscape Architecture career in Kelowna, BC, then in Calgary where he eventually established his own business in 2001. Casey was a successful entrepreneur and truly was a trailblazer. His vision, integrity, kindness and leadership made him highly respected among his business peers. Casey had a passion for sports. He was an accomplished hockey player, golfer and referee. He was an avid fan of the Oilers, Jays and the PGA Tour. His other passions included drawing, reading, music and mastering his grilling skills on the barbeque.

Casey had determination in every challenge he took on. Legally blind, he rode 240 km over 2 days in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer in 2015, personally raising almost $10,000 for a cause close to his heart. Casey always had a smile and a perpetually optimistic attitude. His outgoing personality and great sense of humour made Casey many close, lifelong friends. He was a community figure in Haysboro and will not be forgotten by his neighbours.

He will be missed immeasurably by his wife Loralie, daughter Hannah, son Connor, beloved dog Cooper, mother Donna, brother Clancy, and all members of the Penner and Mahan families. He was predeceased by his father Thomas (Turk) Mahan.
