Obituary

Casey Weed, 47, knight, actor, writer, soldier, clothier, shoe aficionado, blind archer and husband passed from this world on Sunday, September 24th, 2017. Casey came into this world, the only son of Mary Carrara Watson, a large baby and he stayed large – in every sense of the word – until he passed. His stature, his presence, his wit, his talent - oh his prodigious talent! - were large. The impact that he left of the lives of those who knew and loved him was equally large.

Casey served in the US Army, was a knight of the Society of Creative Anachronism, a tailor, a writer and an actor. Though he could play any role, Casey was primarily thought of as a comedic actor. His lightening wit and audacity served him brilliantly in roles as varied as Falstaff and Puck. His improvisational skills often left his scene partners racing to keep up and crying with laughter. Casey's talents were not limited to the stage. He was a feared opponent in martial combat, a skilled tailor and a writer. And when being robbed of his sight by a tumor meant that he could no longer take part in martial combat, Casey took up archery, at which he excelled.

Casey leaves behind innumerable people whose lives he touched. For everyone who knew him, the world is a little less bright, a little less colorful than it was when he was in it. Chief among them, Casey leaves behind his mother, Mary Carrara Watson and the love of his life, his wife of 16 years, his beloved Sweet Pea - Cherie Weed. Never were two people better matched and solace s only found in the knowledge that they will be joined together again in eternity.

"...my manly heart doth yearn —Bardolph, be blithe — Nym, rouse thy vaunting veins —Boy, bristle thy courage up. For Falstaff, he is dead…"

Memorial services will be held from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 1, 2017 at the Curtain Theatre, 7400 Coldwater Canyon, Austin, Texas 78730.
