Casey Reese, Son of Chip, Dies

Few details about a presumably sad occurrence, but Casey was 20, had a promising baseball career, and likely would’ve found his way to poker upon reaching legal casino gambling age, where we would’ve watched to see if he would indeed become the Dale Earnhardt Jr. of Poker.

The unconfirmed word on the street is that it was from a drug overdose … and it seems plausible enough, as the untimely death of a father can often send someone down such a path.

    Doyle writes about how it was prescription Drugs in a blog.This poor kid really must have struggled with his father’s death the past 16 months.

    A Tragedy…

    We all must learn something from a tragedy and with this one, we have to pay attention more to those who lose loved one’s.

    My heart goes out to the family and close friend’s.

    There are a lot of questionable scenarios to his death… we’ll have to wait to hear more from the police and doctors before we really do know what happened for sure. He had great support and love pouring in from his family, friends and girlfriend after his fathers death, but now we have to remember all of those people in this time.
