They welcomed their first child, Rylee Jo. Together they brought three more beautiful children into their family. Aliyah, Kenzie "Bob" and Emmitt. His kids were his pride and joy. In 2018 Casey started his own business called "Martin's Construction". He had many helping hands throughout his business journey. He was always humble and gave all credit to his "crew".
