Words below from Mystery Gallery founders Kathy & Doug Casey's son, Bryan upon Doug passing on 2/6/2020.
 

It is with a heavy heart that I share the passing of my father and co-owner of the Mystery Gallery, Douglas Casey aka Chicle. Doug left his physical body on 2/6/2020 while in Tucson doing what he loved, stocking up on precious rocks and crystals for the shop. He put his heart and soul into this business that he and his wife Kathy Casey started back in 2003. 

Please during this time give Kathy gentle space to grieve. The best thing you could do to honor Doug would be to come into the shop, purchase a rock and hold it to your heart or your third eye and bless the universe with more positive energy, more peace and more love. 

Those of you who had the pleasure to know Doug and shop the rock area when he was healthy enough to work in the store know how passionate he was about rocks. When he was not in the shop, he was still working hard behind the scenes with continuous love and support for his family and the Mystery Gallery. 

We’d like to thank our family, friends, and especially the employees (Mike, Emily, Summer and Tracy) for helping us during this transition. Please know that during this time of healing, it may be difficult for us to get back to everyone’s messages right away. We very much appreciate all your love and condolences. If you have any good stories/memories to share about Chicle, please share in the comments. ?? 

Papa, you will always be with us in our thoughts and hearts. 

~With the most deepest of Love, Bryan Casey

    I'm so sorry to hear about Doug passing. He was an incredible person and even though it's been a few years since I've been in, I will always remember your special shop and his wonderful energy.

    I used to buy rocks from Doug behind the scenes. I would spend hours digging through his basement and then storage unit looking for cool slabs. Doug was always telling me great stories and showing me his new exciting acquisitions. He was one of my favorite rockhounds, a generous and welcoming spirit, and I am so sorry to hear he has left this universe. Kathy and family, I am sending you all my love and admiration. Doug was a true gem. Alison Cole Portland

    Doug always had a wonderful smile and would always help me find the perfect crystal through exploration of many marvelous stones and crystals throughout the gallery. Thank you. You will be missed.

    I'm glad I got to be Doug's official Daughter before he passed so he knew just how much I love his son. <3
