I feel like ive been kicked in the stomach. I had to check it was the CEverett i knew and it appears there are dozens of them...all pretending to be Casey.....but there is only one Casey Everett.
The Bushwackers was one of the first clubs i ever joined....long time ago...at the time....as memory serves me right there was a merger between Whisky Creek and the Bushwackers...Casey was happy for Toolman to captain the ship but i think he fell into bad health so Casey continued on as skipper.
Casey stood out as an extremely warm...genuine and kind person.....i knew he was close and a carer for his father.
He was very proud of his 19th hole accolade and was richly deserved
The Bushwackers is the best club i have ever been in..and ive been in dozens of them...lots of great folks and tough competitors. There were about 20 of us who regularly contributed to the bi monthly help scheme...the precurser to the GOGF.....which has been an astonishing success.
I played many alt shot games with Casey and we always paired up.....he never had a bad word to say about any of our opponents......which was really frustrating for me....even with expert tuition....he never even uttered a single swear word.
This really is a sad day for me and everyone in the community and difficult to take in.
I will have a few whiskys tonight remembering what a warm and kind fellow you are.and for reminding us that its the community that is the important thing.
My sincere condolences to his friends and family
