March 31, 1933 - Oct. 13, 2021

Softly call the muster…William Richard "Dick" Casbeer passed away October 13, 2021. Services will take place at a later date where he will be interred at the same time as his wife.

Born March 31, 1933 to Bryan and Ruth Casbeer in Lampasas, Texas. Dick grew up in Lampasas and upon graduating from high school there he attended college at Texas A&M and graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering. In 1957, Dick married Myra Grace Kessler and relocated to Waco, where they raised their children: Richard and Ruth. Dick retired as Director of Transportation Planning and Development, Waco District, after a 39-year career with the Texas Department of Transportation. The Casbeers were long-time members of First Presbyterian Church of Waco where he served as a church elder.

Everyone who knew Dick (fighting Texas Aggie class of 1954), knew he was an A&M man through and through. In addition to all maroon sports, he participated in fantasy sports leagues and never tired of good game of poker with his children and grandchildren.

Dick was preceded in death by his wife, Myra and sister, Catherine Baker. Survivors include his two children, Ruth Casbeer Watson '88 and husband William '91, Richard Scott Casbeer '88 and wife Pamela; two grandchildren, Jessica Nicole Casbeer and William Christopher Watson; along with numerous nieces and nephews.

My deepest condolences to you and your family. I came to work at Carriage Inn a few months before Myra passed. I got to love her in such a short time. And got to know Mr. Dick as well. I'll never forget him he was always watching his sports and doing his fantasy leagues. And when he was doing his monthly bills... Was always listening to old country music. He surely is missed. Again my condolences on the loss of such a great and fascinating man..

It was my pleasure to know Myra &Dick as a young girl. I babysat for their kids when they were young and enjoyed being family friends through Lake Shore Presbyterian Church. God Bless you all my love and prayers.
