Condolence From: Mark E. Casida
Condolence: The Casida family was always spread out over the United States and now it is spread out over the world. It is therefore understandable that I had little communication with my Uncle Earl and yet he left a deep impression on me. As a wee boy, to my delight and my mother's horror, my uncle took me to a firing range and showed me how to shoot a rifle. That occurred during a rare visit to the Pennsylvania Casida's. Indeed I was so young that I remember little else of the visit. Later Uncle Earl was to send me a much treasured book of van Leeuwenhoek's experiments which I still have upon the shelf. Knowingly or unknowingly, Uncle Earl contributed to my growth as a scientist. I believe that the last time I saw him was in Wisconsin at the time of Grandpa Casida's funeral. Uncle Earl managed to find the time to give me some valuable advice about survival in graduate school. He may be gone now, but he will remain in my thoughts as long as I live. Bless him and my cousins, his daughters. ... Mark

Condolence From: Betsy Tanabe
Condolence: I am so sorry for your loss. My husband, T.Y. Tanabe, was a grad student of Lester Earl Casida Sr. at Madison,WI and revered him highly for his superior knowledge and close friendship. He knew young Earl here in State College. The Casida family contributed much to the world of science in their respective fields. Blessings on the entire Casida Family.
Sincerely, Betsy Tanabe

Condolence: Dear Nancy and family,
I was sorry to hear that Dr. Casida passed away. I enjoyed working in his lab as an undergraduate. He and Vicki were delightful company when we all visited Pauline Massaglia.
I know you will miss your dad. May good memories be a comfort to you now.
