Kasey’s family issued a moving tribute and said their ‘hearts will be broken forever’:

“We will miss our crazy Kasey. He was a huge part of everyone’s lives. Every single person who met him has a story to tell. He always made everyone laugh and left a mark on everyone he met. Our hearts will be broken forever.

“He did not deserve a second of this. He will be missed by everyone in the community. The loss of Kasey has brought everyone down to their knees. As a family we would like to thank all the staff at Aintree Hospital who looked after Kasey and ourselves as a family. We are also so grateful to the whole community for the love and support they have given to us as a family.”

Kasey’s funeral will take place on Wednesday 10 May, at Queen Martyrs Church, Croxteth, at 1.30pm.
