Kasley was a great guy. I was around him a lot as I was growing up. I remember his laugh most of all. He and my dad we�re always telling stories and cooking fish and shrimp in the garage. I�m so saddened to know this but he lived a good life and was a friend to everyone. I�m sure he�s in heaven with Ms Mildred. Prayers for the family and may the strength of Christ be with you.

May all of Gods tools fit his hands and
May the list of his projects be long
For the fruits of his labor were many and grand
And our need for his spirit shall still prolong

Kasley was the most talented and entergetic man I�ve ever known and he did it all with a smile. He left laughter wherever he went! He was a true friend and mentor.

One can try, but it is impossible to summarize 65 years in a couple of sentences. Mr. T was not just a friend and neighbor�more like family to the Carl Green clan next door. While he is already missed, memories will always bring smiles and good stories. Farewell, old friend.

JUNE GROSE January 19, 2020
