This is a blatant lie as Mr. Casas only had 5 children with the first one being born in 1955.

a blatant lie?? So tell me, how is it a blatant lie when the birth certificate in the state of california in Los Angeles County has " Anthony L. Casas" as the the birth father for the child born in 1950 by birth mother Angelina Battaglia? Well JACK I am curious as to how you will answer that one or will you just point a gun at me like you did to me and my children while you were living with Grandpa @ 906 Valley View Dr , San Bernadino in 1996-97!

WOW...obviously none of you people knew Tony or Dorthy Casas and are telling some serious lies. Both Tony and Dorthy were two of the best people in the whole world whom were loved by many people. The both of them had more "CLASS" then the idiot in the "real story" comment could ever have. Both of them will be greatly missed by many.

I have only one question ... why did you wait until they were both dead to tell these stories? Could it be that you knew that they would have seen you in court?

May they both rest in peace.

obviously you are insignificant, pathetic excuse of "human beings". Court?? what the heck does that have to do with anything??#2...If you are a true american citizen you should know that freedom of speech is part of the constitution. I hope Tony and Dorothy are rotting and the maggots are eating their pathetic, wet back, ignorant bodies. I sleep real good every night knowing they are rotting where they long suckers and belinda, the cow Tammy, debbie who can't seem to have babies because they die in her care and the pscho path tony jr all rot right along with your "classy" ignorant mother and father!

This was supposed to be a site for people to come to a write about and remember loved ones who have passed away, Dorothy & Tony, and it has turned into a very mean and ugly thing. I knew them both and found them to be just the best in every way.. The ugly thing here is people trying to stir stuff up and hurt innocent people for no reason other than not enough good in thier own lives to keep them busy. I will miss Tony & Dorothy alot and will continue to hold the Casas children (5) dear to me.

well people might have good and bad memories but as for me it was good i was 14 yrs old and gangbanging out here in the coachella valley and i meet him thru a at risk program for youth he worked at the palm springs police dept. and he was some one i could relate to alot he always talk to me about the gang lifestyle and how it only leads to death. i got in a big mess once and at that time he was the only one i could talk to he talk some sense into me and i made my choice to listen to him i did 2 yrs in chino but i could have done more but he helped me,he was a tool God used to get me where i am now i gave my life to jesus in jail came out and started a church at 22yrs old i'm 33 now and going on strong pastoring in indio ca i never got to see him again or even knew he died until i was looking for to thank him. but he's gone i will miss him
p.s he called edward james olmos to come and meet me once but i missed the oppurtunity because i went to jail but i recived a autograph picture it was cool. forgive him if he did u wrong im sure we were'nt angels ourselves .take care and God bless

Tony casas sr. and dorothy casas were not nice people at all,first of all tony casas sr. would take out a 2nd and third morgtgage on his parents house at valley view drive in san bernardino.and ton casas sr. was never in combat in the korean war.he was in the airforce at the time and was never in any combat what so ever.tony casas sr. and his children are nothing more then self righteous people who like to act like they are such angels,when we all know what kind of people they really are.
