Former Rep. Casey dies after falling

ST. LOUIS — Gov. Jay Nixon is among those mourning the death of a former Missouri lawmaker from eastern Missouri.

Relatives of former Democratic Rep. Ron Casey, of Crystal City, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that he died Sunday from a head injury he suffered in a fall a few days earlier.

Casey was 61. He left office in January 2013 after serving for eight years in the Missouri House.

Nixon said Monday that Casey was a loyal friend who lived out his faith every day and was a dedicated public servant.

Before winning election to the legislature, Casey served as a Jefferson County commissioner for 12 years.
