In Honor of Casey Patrick Farrell

Donations will be used to create a memorial award in Casey's honor at his alma mater, SUNY Geneseo. It will establish a permanent award for excellence in technical theatre to be given annually to a graduating senior.

Casey Patrick Farrell, Class of 2004 died suddenly on April 15, 2012 of natural causes. He was raised in Blue Point, NY and attended Bayport-Blue Point High School. Casey attended SUNY Geneseo where he majored in theatre, graduating in 2004. He worked as an apprentice of IATSE Local 1 at the Little Shubert Theatre and the New Victory Theatre. He became the Master Electrician as well as Assistant Master Technician, where he ran the lights and helped design the lighting for many of the productions that played there.

He leaves behind his parents Michael and Julia, a sister, Shea, and a beloved fiancee, Lauren, as well as too many family members, friends and colleagues to count. Casey was deeply loved. Please help us to create a lasting legacy in his honor.  Additional funds will be shared with charities selected by Casey's family.
