Casey Ryles, age 82, affectionately known as “Pops,” went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, June 28, 2020. Born in Philadelphia, PA on December 16, 1937 to Cassie and Elizabeth Ryles. He was the youngest of seven children. In his youth, he attended the Philadelphia public school system until grade eight; graduating from Roman Catholic HS in 1956. After graduation, Casey joined the U.S. Marine Corps where he honorably served as a Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Defense Specialist. He took a break from his military career and worked in Philadelphia as a roofer and police officer. He rejoined the Marines and retired after twenty years of faithful service. Subsequently, he retired from the Norfolk Naval Shipyard as a Boiler Mechanic.
Casey married his high school sweetheart, Judith D. Ryles on April 19, 1982. They were married thirty-five wonderful years until her departure on October 2, 2017.
Pops was an avid Philadelphia Eagles fan and thoroughly enjoyed horse racing. He loved to cook and dubbed himself Chef Boyardee. He was also the self-proclaimed grill master; making sure everyone had plenty on their plates. He loved to entertain and make everyone feel welcome. Pops was a devoted family man who cherished special occasions and family gatherings. In recent years, he valued frequent visits with his nephews and nieces, Elmer, Darryl, Vielka and De De.
