Casey Kasem Passes Away on Father’s Day

Legendary Radio Persona Casey Kasem passed away Sunday, Father’s Day. A legendary voice has been silenced forever. The radio icon whose Top 40 countdown permeated radio airwaves for four decades passed away after a Los Angeles judge gave his kids the okay to withdraw the medication, food and fluids necessary to keep him alive in a recent court ruling.  The decision also ended a bitter family feud over his care.  Kasem had been suffering from Lewy body dementia, a Parkinson’s-like condition that left the man with one of radio’s most recognizable voices unable to speak. He was 82. Casey Kasem hosted the nationally syndicated Top 40 countdown show “American Top 40″ and similar radio shows between 1970 and 2009 when he retired.  The Detroit-born radio personality is also known for voicing the character Shaggy in the Saturday morning “Scooby-Doo” cartoon series.
