Raymond Edward Case
Cherished father & grandfather passed away August 25, 2023, of heart failure and complications from Parkinson’s disease. He is survived by daughters Heather Case and April Case Underwood, son-in-law Mark Underwood, and five grandchildren – Colin, Anderson, Campbell, Arden, and Case.
Born in 1939, Ed grew up in Smithtown, New York, before attending Davis & Elkins College. At age 21, Ed became a Marine.
After his tour ended, Ed came to northern Virginia where his parents and little brother Lou had moved. The next year, he met and married Nancyrae. They spent nearly 56 years together before her passing in 2020.
Ed had a wide variety of interests. He could be counted on to know details about all kinds of planes and guns. He also picked up photography, sailing, and model train building. He shared his hobbies with others and made many lifelong friends. Ed also returned to the military, serving in the Navy Reserves for two decades until retiring.
Ed was never more at home, than at the family place in Vermont. He loved watching the sun rise from the back porch.
A service to honor both Ed and Rae will be held Friday, September 15, at 11am at Idylwood Presbyterian in Falls Church. He will be laid to rest later, alongside Rae, at Arlington National Cemetery.
If so moved, please honor Ed’s memory with a donation to a military organization, or to help Vermont flood victims at https://floodready.vermont.gov/help-after-flooding#Donate
