Hunlock Creek, PA

Casey Joseph Lachenmayer, 41, of Shickshinny, passed away suddenly Saturday, Nov. 27, 2021, in Wilkes-Barre General Hospital.

He was born in Somerville, N.J., Aug. 3, 1980, and was the son of John and Joan Seiz Lachenmayer, of Hunlock Creek.

Casey graduated from Northwest Area High School in 1998 and went on to get his bachelor's degree in health physics from Bloomsburg University. He was employed as a health physicist at the University of Pennsylvania for 10 years. No, he was not a PE teacher. He played football and track and field for Northwest Area High School as well as one year of football at Bloomsburg University. Maybe he should have been a PE teacher.

Casey had a highly inquisitive and technical mind with a passion for science and photography. He was always thinking of his next invention and taking a minimum of 50 photos of the same subject to catch every angle and then he'd want to show you each and every one. He was very proud of his fogbow picture that made it on to WNEP. Casey was a patriot and gun enthusiast, buying his first gun at the ripe age of 28, when his wife was out of the country for work. He also enjoyed homebrewing beer and making wine as well as putting a minimum of three condiments on each meal he ate. Casey faced many challenges in life as we all do. Little did he know his biggest challenge would be the 22 5 to 7-year-olds he coached on the Northwest Area Junior Rangers D team for two years where his patience was truly tested.

When Casey wasn't brewing beer or looking into conspiracy theories, he loved being a father. It was his greatest accomplishment next to taking a five minute shower - once. He enjoyed playing catch with his son and passing on his knowledge of football. They also played Madden, where his son would show him all the slow-mo replays repeatedly just like he used to do to his friends. Casey and his daughter loved cooking and playing with snap circuits together. He passed on his love of science to her, starting at a very young age. Hopefully he didn't pass on his love of brewing too soon.

He was preceded in death by paternal grandparents, John D. and Hermina Lachenmayer; and maternal grandparents, Mary and William Seiz.

In addition to his parents, Casey is survived by his wife of 14 years, Rebecca Boyd Lachenmayer; daughter, Emma (11); son, Noah (9); sister, Aprile and husband, Joe Coleman, Mountain Top; brother, John W. Lachenmayer and fiancée, Nicole Biago, Exeter; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Funeral services will be held at 6 p.m. Monday from Curtis L. Swanson Funeral Home Inc., routes 29 and 118, Pikes Creek, with Pastor Tammey Aichner of the First Church of Christ (Disciples), Williamsport, officiating.

Visitation will be from 4 to 6 p.m. prior to the service at the funeral home.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the American Heart Association, PO Box 840692, Dallas, TX 75284-0692.
