David Terry Case, 86, of Overland Park, KS, entered into eternal life on November 11, 2020, after succumbing to Alzheimer’s Disease. Visitation will be Sunday, November 15, 2020 from 2:00-4:00 pm at McGilley State Line Chapel, 12301 State Line Road, Kansas City, MO. A Funeral Mass will be held Monday, November 16 at 11:00 am at the Church of the Nativity, 3800 W. 119th St., Leawood, KS. On Saturday, November 21, burial will take place in the Cutchogue Cemetery, 30472 Main Rd, Cutchogue, NY. Mr. Case was born March 17, 1934, in Greenport, NY. He was married 61 years ago in St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Ballston Spa, NY. After serving in the army for two years, he worked for General Electric for 26 years and Hallmark Cards for 15 years. He was a Eucharistic Minister for many years at the Church of the Nativity.

Dave loved sailing, swimming and clamming with his family. His friends never minded when he beat them at golf or won at bridge. He was equally happy losing rounds of Sequence to his delightful wife.

He was a devoted husband, loving father and exceptional grandfather who will be dearly missed.

Dave was preceded in death by his parents, his brother, Clee, and his baby sister, Mary Belle. Survivors include his beloved wife, Marlene Brien; three children, David (Tammy), Phil (Anne Marie), Suzanne (Jay); five grandchildren, Brittany (Dan), Zach, Alex, Jordan, Mariah; his sister, Katherine Case; his nephew, Clifford, and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Church of the Nativity Building Fund or the Alzheimer’s Association.

I will never forget when Dave and Marlene would come to Mass at Our Lady of Good Counsel church in Mattituck, how they would never leave before telling me to have a good day and how wonderful my homily was (even if it really wasn't!)
What a kind, gentle person David was!

I have so many great memories of my Uncle Dave. He was such a kind, fun loving man and I always remember him with a smile on his face. I had many great times at the cottage with Uncle Dave and Aunt Marlene, whenever I see a Sunfish sailboat I think of them. My children always referred to Uncle Dave as the "fun uncle", and that is such a true statement.
My deepest sympathy to Aunt Marlene and the whole Case family. May he rest in peace.

Love, Lorie

Marlene, I am so sorry for your loss. We have missed you and Dave as our neighbors. You will both always be in our hearts, especially during this time of year. Our whole family always cherished the joy of getting our annual Christmas ornaments that seemed to be so perfectly and uniquely picked out for each of us. Your presence is missed and we have you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. May your wonderful memories together comfort you always.
Love, John, Linda, PJ and Izzy Migliazzo

I didn't work directly with Dave at Hallmark, but I spoke with him and saw him in the department. He always had a smile and was friendly to everyone. I remember the Christmas parties that he and you (Marlene) used to have. You invited everyone in the department. He seemed like a gentle, caring man. I'm so sorry for your family's loss.

To Dave’s family and friends,
We loved Dave so much as a member of our family, and especially is love for life. His passion for family was always an inspiration for us.

So many fond memories of our world travels with Dave and Marlene.

We were blessed to have him in our lives, we will miss him dearly, but know he is a better place. Our love to all.

Our beloved brother, Uncle and Great Uncle Dave always knew the right thing to say, maybe funny or serious lines we all benefited from. He was always inclusive and respectful to all. You just wanted to be around him, just don't clam behind him if you want to catch a clam. An extremely faithful intelligent man with patience and persistence who always had time to play any game or debate any topic and make it fun. We are all grateful for all those special times. Meticulous attention to planning with detail along with desire to do the very best he could do was his nature, and we aren't just talking about his lunch sandwiches here ! Some of the projects will be around a very long time along with stories, beautiful memories and admiration for a great man. He could open clams all day eating a few himself and sharing the rest while having a smile from ear to ear. With great admiration we envision his outstretched arms with a loving embrace that he always had for us and now for his bothers and sisters in heaven.
Love for a great man,
Katherine, Clifford, Linda and C. J. Case

I have so many fond memories of Uncle Dave and the whole Case clan. From the whole family Christmas, to being taught how to sail, crab and clam on the island. I was blessed with the fun uncle. I am happy he is at peace with his lord. Love you Dave.
