    I joined the navy at HMCS Tecumseh long after Cdr. Hale had command of the unit but met him at several events through the years. I always enjoyed his company and was entertained by his stories. My sincere condolences to his family.

  8. Greg McKenzie, CDR (Ret'd) :

    Then Lt. Hale was Recruiting Officer in HMCS Tecumseh. He recruited me to the Navy for which I am forever grateful. We served together for many years. Lots of good memories. Casey was ever enthusiastic and a real motivator. I’ve always admired his tenacity too in completing his P. Eng while working in the oil patch and while serving in the Navy. A true “citizen sailor.”

  15. Cdr Brian Nelson (Ret'd) :

    Commander Casey Hale was one of the first officers I met in TECUMSEH becoming my CO. When he learned of my desire to join the CF through the ROTP and go to CMR, he was one of my biggest supporters. Because of people like Casey I throughly enjoyed my 41+ years in the Navy and CF in general. Fair winds and smooth seas Casey. Brian Nelson, Cdr (Ret’d), Kingston, ON
