Walter Stone Casey, 79, of West Haven, passed away unexpectedly on Dec. 26, at St. Raphael’s Hospital.

Born in West Haven, Walter was the son of the late Joseph E. Casey and Marjorie Stone Casey. He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Joyce E. Morgan Casey; their three daughters, Melissa Casey (Todd Thurlow) of Kensington, N.H.; Megan Casey Pollock (Jeff) of Beacon Falls; and Meredith Casey (Jim Cain) of Norwalk; and their two grandchildren, Casey Pollock and Madeline Pollock. He also is survived by his brother, Joseph E. Casey of West Haven; sister-in-law, Sandra J. Kent of Mesa, Arizona; and brother-in-law, John (Susan) Morgan of Woodbury. He was predeceased by his triplet grandchildren Laura, Kris, and Devon Pollock.

Walter began his illustrious 48-year career with the West Haven Police Department, working as a supernumerary patrolman in 1968. A year later, he became a full-time patrolman. He was promoted to detective in 1972, then to patrol sergeant in 1979 and detective sergeant in 1986, a position he held until his retirement in 2016.
