Allan Louis “Butch” Case, age 76, of Salisbury, MD, formerly of New Castle, DE, passed away on Monday, January 11, 2021, the same day as his wife, Bertha C. “Cathy” (Ingram) Case.

Combs (William) of Sebastian, FL and Karen Losey of Clayton, NC; grandchildren, Merriah (Bobbi), Ashley, Michael, Anthony, Brandy (William), Katie, and Megan; and great grandchildren, Jacoby and Aiden.
